The department's history

Since 1975, King Abdulaziz University Hospital (KAUH) has been delegated mainly to Otolaryngology and Ophthalmology. Our ENT department was the first otolaryngology department established in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and is based primarily at KAUH. The department grew dramatically since its humble beginnings of just a few handful of general otolarynglogists to a specialized centre with highly trained sub-specialized staff. At present, our department has all the following subspecialties within Otorhinolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery:

- Otology & Neurotology 
 - Rhinology & Skull-base Surgery

- Laryngology

 - Facial Plastic & Surgery  
- Head& Neck Surgical Oncology
- Pediatric Otolaryngology
- Communication & Swallowing Disorders

- Audiology & Balance
