The ENT Clinic of Verona, sited in Verona, Italy, is directed by Prof. Daniele Marchioni.

The clinic is a cutting-edge center for major head and neck oncologic surgery and for both endoscopic and microscopic ear surgery and skull base surgery. More than 1600 procedures are performed each year.

Ear diseases treated at our clinic include chronic otitis media, cholesteatoma, glomus tympanicus, approached with both the traditional microscopic technique and with endoscopy. Surgical hearing rehabilitation is also performed, such as stapedotomy, BAHA application, cochlear implantation and, in thoroughly selected cases, brainstem implantation (ABI).

Lateral skull base, cerebellopontine angle and petrous apex pathology is also treated, including advanced cholesteatoma, cholesterol granuloma, tympanic-jugular glomus, paraganglioma, meningioma and malignant tumors. Based on each case’s peculiarities, the most adequate approach is chosen between traditional microscopic (including the translabirynthine, transotic, transcochlear, infratemporal and middle cranial fossa approaches) and new endoscopic routes that use the external auditory canal (EAC) as a corridor (e.g. the transpromontorial, infracochlear and suprageniculate approaches). In this field, particular relevance is given to the treatment of vestibular schwannoma.

For what concerns the anterior skull base, expanded transnasal approaches (in particular, those availing from the transcribriform, transsellar, transpalnum and transclival routes) for the treatment of a wide range of pathologies, including malignant tumors of the paranasal sinuses determining anterior skull base invasion (such as squamous cell carcinoma, ITAC, glomangyopericitoma etc.) and tumors that originate intracranially (such as pituitary adenoma, meningioma, craniopharyngioma, chordoma etc.).

To offer the best treatment to such pathologies and given their challenging management, a skull base team was created, constituted by professionals including Otorhinolaryngologist, Neurosurgeon, Neuroradiologist, Maxillo-Facial surgeon, and Oncologist.

In addition to surgery, the ENT Clinic in Verona pursues scientific research in all fields of otorhinolaryngology. In particular, our equipe actively cooperates with international ENT Clinics especially in the areas of endoscopic ear surgery and lateral skull base surgery.
