Gruppo Otologico and Mario Sanna

The team at the Gruppo Otologico is lead by the internationally acclaimed surgeon Prof. Mario Sanna and comprises of highly skilled and motivated Surgeons, Physicians, Audiology, Speech & Language Pathology (ASLP), nursing and managerial staff.
The Consultants, apart from having a wealth of experience in dealing with diseases of the ear, skull base, hearing impairment, paranasal sinuses and the head & neck, are also internationally sought after speakers in conferences around the world in the above mentioned subjects. They perform the complete gamut of Otology, Skull base surgery, Neurotological & Reconstructive procedures, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery and Head & Neck Oncology.

At the Gruppo Otologico, we believe in a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to dealing with our patients, diseases. This involves drawing appropriately from multiple disciplines to redefine problems outside of normal boundaries and reach solutions based on a new understanding of complex situations. Hence a group of departments coordinate with one another to provide the best and optimum care for our patients. These include the departments of ENT, Otology, Skull Base Surgery, Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Anesthesiology & Intensive therapy and Maxillofacial surgery

The nursing staff are experienced and highly trained in advanced otological and skull base surgeries and provide compassionate care and service. The managerial staff are the backbone of the institute who keep the show alive with a smile on their faces.
