The Origin of this can be traced right back to 1960-s when it was started as a small ENT Unit with two consultants at District Hospital Kottayam. Dr.V.O.Zachariah was the founder professor under whose guidance the department blossomed into full fledged ENT set up. Later when Dr.C.G.Jayathilakan took over the reins of the department it was shifted from Kottayam to Gandhinagar at its present location. Initially the department catered only to undergraduate training. Later 1983 the post graduate courses started with 2 M.S and 2 DLO seats which were duly recognized by MCI. This department was institutional in training many of the finest talents in the process since its inception. Thanks to the leadership of Professors Dr.A.R.Varma, Dr.Shahul Hameed, Dr.S.V.Lakshmi Narayanan and Dr.P.Prathapan Nair. Our MS ENT seat has been increased to 4 from 2010 onwards The department can boast of all new advantages in its surgical which had been procured at appropriate turning including FESS, MLC and Micro Ear surgery. This caters to far and wide across central Travancore rich and poor. . . Dr.Joe Jacob.K
