The specialty of ENT (ear, nose and throat) or otolaryngology is focused on disorders/conditions that range from extremely minor (such as a sore throat) to very complex (such as cancer). The otolaryngologists - ENT physicians - at CHI St. Luke's Health - The Vintage Hospital are leaders in diagnosing, managing and treating conditions and diseases of the ear, nose and throat.

Our Care

Patients at CHI St. Luke's Health - The Vintage Hospital benefit from skull base endoscopic equipment for performing minimally invasive surgery.  The endoscopic approach allows surgeons to remove tumors that otherwise would require a large cranial opening and brain retraction or disfiguring facial scars.  Instead an endoscope is advanced through a natural opening such as the nasal cavity.

Services

CHI St. Luke's Health - The Vintage Hospital also boasts an innovative electromagnetic image-guided Fusion™ ENT Navigation System for patients undergoing endoscopic sinus procedures.  Similar to a global positioning system, the equipment provides the surgeon with real-time images to help navigate in the sinuses for precise removal of diseased tissue while avoiding critical areas.
