Established in the 1940s, The Otolaryngology Centre (Limited ENT Clinic) is the oldest surviving private ear, nose, throat, head and neck surgery facility in Jamaica and most of the Caribbean Islands.
Our founder is the late Hon. Kenneth McNeil FRCS, (ENG) who returned to Jamaica from the UK as a trained ENT, head, neck, and plastic surgeon. After his retirement in 1979, Dr Charles Lyn and Dr Halda Shaw assumed management and expanded our services to include maxillofacial surgery.
These two surgeons, along with the late Dr Lyle Harper, were in charge of the postgraduate Doctor of Medicine (OM), Otorhinolaryngology, Head, Neck, and Maxillofacial Training programme at the University of the West Indies, as well as the ENT Departments at the University, Kingston Public and Bustamante Hospital for Children.
We have maintained relationships with these hospitals and staff. And, these relationships allow us to expand our services which include: general ENT and maxillofacial surgery, advanced head and neck surgery, endoscopic surgery, complementary medicine, audiology and hearing aids, hearing conservation in toxic noise workplace, allergy management and electrodermal (Biomeridian) allergy testing.
