Ear tube insertion is a simple outpatient surgery used to treat children (or occasionally adults) who have recurring ear infections…
The ear is an organ that allows for hearing and aids in balance. In humans, it has three parts – the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear. Within these three parts are bones, muscles, and vessels that function together. With the complexity of the ear, it can be easy to develop diseases, infections, or traumatic damage that calls for surgery.
Procedures can be done for a variety of reasons, such as to improve hearing, alleviate pain due to otitis media, to repair punctures or perforations, and to repair deformities. Procedures can also be performed to improve hearing loss. Below are a list of our current ear surgery procedures and a description of each.
