Help patients to hear, breathe, and swallow

Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Surgery requires Sault Area Hospital specialists to use tools that are precise and delicate. New tools, with the latest medical technology, help our surgical team to perform these surgeries safely and more quickly.


This year, we need $297,900 to fund ENT surgical tools, helping our patients to receive outstanding ENT care, close to home.

Microdebrider

This tool is used in in surgery for patients who have chronic sinus problems that cause breathing difficulties. It looks like a thin tube, and works by slicing away small pieces of tissue and removing them with suction.


ENT Navigator

This equipment works with the microdebrider by showing the instrument location within the skull with 3D pinpoint accuracy.

ENT Microscope

An ENT Microscope helps the surgeon see while they perform delicate, precision surgery on the middle and inner ear.


ENT High-Speed Drill

The high-speed drill is used in middle ear and inner ear surgery, helping to improve or restore a patients’ hearing. The new equipment is fine-tuned for better accuracy and handling. Dr. Rebello, one of our ENT surgeons, predicts that it will make surgery more efficient, allowing her to schedule two surgeries per day instead of one. This will help to shorten the wait time for this procedure.

With your continued support, we can raise the $297,900 needed to purchase these specialized tools. This equipment will be in use for the next ten years, meaning your support will make outstanding care possible for years to come.
