OTONEURO MONACO: THE PRINCIPALITY’S NEW HEALTHCARE FACILITY DEVOTED TO HEARING AND BALANCE ISSUES

Prince Albert II has inaugurated a new facility dedicated to treating and understanding hearing and balance issues in Fontvieille. Otoneuro Monaco is lead by the former head of the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace’s otorhinolaryngology department. 

Prince Albert is given a tour of the centre’s technology.

The former department head at CHPG’s ear, nose and throat (ENT) unit has decided to take his vast expertise and put it to use for the local community with the opening of Otoneuro Monaco, a new care centre for hearing and balance disorders.

The office opened in January at the Athos Palace in Fontvieille and is a soothing environment by any standard: pod-like sofas, light wood walls and neutral colours welcome patients into a well-lit and modern facility whose cosiness belies the high-tech inner workings.

Otoneuro is equipped with state-of-the-art tools including virtual reality masks, hearing test rooms and a special chair made specifically to test reactions in relation to balance.

Doctor Lavagna is also offering a new treatment option for the once-untreatable disorder of tinnitus and similar issues. The bimodal neuromodulation approach involves the stimulation of a patient’s tongue with an electrode over half-hour sessions, which allows the team at Otoneuro to “permanently reprogramme the auditory brain areas”. Lavagna says the treatment provides some, if not total, relief in 90% of the patients he sees.
