HISTORY AND IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN THE PAST:

  • The Department was started in 1948 under the able leadership of Padma Bhushan Prof. L. H. Hiranandani. Prof. Hiranandani was instrumental in establishing the Head and Neck Oncology Services, and developed the Department so that observers and surgeons from all over the world would come and visit him to learn, and was solely responsible for putting the name of the same on the World Map. He was also responsible for establishing the Audiology and Speech Therapy School IN 1967, which was the first of its kind in Asia, and till date has been a centre for training both the Bachelors and Masters courses. He led the department till 1975. He was succeeded by his son Prof. Navin Hiranandani, who went on to head the department till 1983. Then came the era of Prof. Ashutosh Pusalkar in 1983, another dynamic and proactive surgeon, who further took the department to greater heights. He developed the faculties of Otology, besides furthering Head and Neck Oncology. Dr. Pusalkar has numerous middle ear prosthesis and techniques to his credit, and is an Internationally acclaimed ENT surgeon. In 1988, Prof. Dalbir Singh Grewal, was appointed the Head of Department, and he retained the post for a period of 18 years, till 2006. During his tenure, he conducted numerous surgical workshops, and organised various National conferences. He also authored a surgical atlas. Prof. Bachi Hathiram took over from Dr. Grewal in 2006, and heads the Department to date. With her mantra of ‘teamwork’ she has been endlessly working to put the Department back on the International map. In the past five years, she has conducted more than 8 surgical workshops, organised numerous conferences, and published papers in national and International Journals. She has also authored various textbooks in ENT. The Department has for the third year in a row (since 2008) received the ISO 9001:2000 certification, which is a first amongst the public sector ENT departments in university hospitals across the country.
