History of the ENT Department
 
The ENT department in Coimbatore Medical College was started in 1966, with a professor and two assistant professor.
Ever since it has been the only tertiary care referral centre for the neighboring districts of Erode,Tirupur, Nilgris and for the nearby state of Kerala particularly for patients from Palghat.
The department gives a comprehensive care in Ear, Nose, Throat and Head & Neck surgery both for adults and children, which include both Emergency and Elective services. It’s the only department where coablation and laser has been used for the first time in all the government colleges of tamilnadu. We take pride in being a fully equipped department with advanced instruments.
