About

Dr Thomas Stark is a specialist in ear, nose, and throat medicine and a senior consultant at the ear, nose, and throat clinic in the Helios Clinic in Munich West.

Comprehensive ear, nose, and throat medicine, provided by specialists

Ear, nose, and throat medicine is a sub-section of medicine that deals with changes, injuries, and disorders of the upper airways including the nose and nasal sinuses, the pharynx, the larynx, the oral cavity, the ears, and the oesophagus. Dr Stark is the right person to treat any problems in the entire head and neck region. The complete field of ear, nose, and throat medicine is covered at the Helios Clinic in Munich West under the leadership of Dr Thomas Stark – especially large tumour surgery, surgery of the middle ear, surgery of the endo-nasal cervical cavity, and the appropriate elements of maxillary surgery as well as aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery to the head and neck region.

One of Germany’s leaders in operative hearing-enhancement therapies

In particular, Dr Stark specialises in diseases of the middle and inner ear. His team therefore focuses on microsurgery of the middle ear and the adjacent cranial base. When it comes to hearing rehabilitation (the best possible recovery of hearing) with implantable hearing aids and cochlear implants (CI), Dr Stark can rely on many years of experience. He has personally performed over 1000 cochlear implant surgeries. The cochlear implant, which has been under continuous development since the 1960s, is an auditory prosthesis that can help deaf and hearing impaired persons who have an impaired function of the hair cells (sensory cells in the auditory canal) to regain some hearing function. Not every hearing impaired patient will benefit from a hearing prosthesis. This depends on the time of onset of deafness, the duration of deafness, the speech ability of the hearing impaired individual, the condition of the auditory nerves, and the patient's motivation to learn auditory impressions and speech that he or she will not be used to. Please arrange a consultation with Dr Stark to discuss whether you are a suitable candidate for a cochlear implant.

Interdisciplinary tumour boards

Malignancy in the field of ear, nose, and throat medicine is always discussed individually for each patient by an interdisciplinary tumour board. This ensures that treatment is planned and implemented in the best possible way. Dr Stark also treats cancers, especially of the throat and larynx. Depending on the options available, individualised strategies involving radiation, chemotherapy and surgery will be drawn up.

Disorders of the large salivary glands (e.g. parotid glands) are also a speciality of Dr Stark’s. For example, chronic inflammation of the salivary glands (sialadenitis) may occur or benign and/or malignant tumours may form. If necessary, Dr Stark and his team will remove the affected salivary glands while preserving nerves and tissue to the best extent possible.
