Our team has the most sophisticated surgical equipment (microvideo cameras, diode lasers, CO2 lasers, operative microscope, ultrasound scalpels, radiofrequency scalpels, microdebriders, AIDA videodocumentation system, computerised NIMS system for the intraoperative monitoring of the nervous systems….) which allows us to undertake the whole ORL surgery spectrum using the most modern mini-invasive techniques with the highest safety.
