The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) has consolidated ear, nose, and throat (ENT) services at the Birchmount campus; allowing the hospital to provide the very best care experience for patients and families, with dedicated staff and state-of-the-art equipment.
“This is great news for our community. It simply means patients will get the care they need when they need it, provided by a talented and highly-skilled team of ENT health care professionals,“ said Dr. Deron Brown, Chief of Otolaryngology and Deputy Chief of Surgery at TSH.
Head and neck cancer care will continue to be provided at the General campus. The reorganization is part of a number of important changes TSH has put in place over the last several years to improve its ENT program.
“We’ve hired new surgeons who are fellowship trained and experienced in the advanced surgical management of head and neck cancers,” explains Dr. Brown.
“In addition, a number of pieces of new equipment have been purchased to help our staff deliver this world-class care close to home, including an advanced high definition microscope for the Birchmount campus, and a nerve monitoring system for complex head and neck surgery at the General campus.”
Nurallah Rahim, Interim Vice President for Patient Services at TSH, also points out that the hospital “will soon be purchasing new, state-of-the-art post-operative early warning vital signs monitoring equipment for the Birchmount campus that meets – and in many cases exceeds – provincial standards.”
