Affiliated departments
Capio Hellerup


Per Larsen is a consultant and specialist in ear, nose and throat diseases (oto-rrhino-laryngology).
He currently works as a consultant at Capio in Hellerup and was involved in introducing the ear, nose and throat specialty at Capio Hellerup (then CFR) in 2011. He has previously worked at several private hospitals in Copenhagen and continues to do so.

Per Larsen masters most ear, nose and throat surgical procedures, but has subspecialized in functional binocular-guided sinus surgery and hearing enhancement procedures. Today, he therefore works primarily with sinus surgery, closing holes in the eardrum (myringoplasty) and middle ear surgery with reconstruction of the ossicular chain (hearing enhancement surgery) and septoplasty (surgery for a deviated nasal septum).

Education and training

  • 2012: Norwegian specialist authorization.
  • 1998: Consultant, Hillerød Hospital.
  • 1993: Specialist training in ear, nose and throat surgery.


Per Leganger Larsen was instrumental in introducing (1989) and expanding binocular-guided sinus surgery in Denmark and has since performed the operations at the County Hospital in Gentofte, Rigshospitalet, Hillerød Hospital and the private hospital Hamlet.

Per performs combined binocular and computer-guided sinus surgery and has also performed binocular guided balloon dilatation of the sinus drainage since 2008 and binocular guided balloon dilatation of the eustachian tube since 2013.

He has developed the so-called "button technique" (In-lay On-lay) for closing holes in the eardrum. The surgery can then often be performed through the ear canal, without shaving off the hair and without filling the middle ear with material to hold the new eardrum in place.
