Endoscopic Micro Ear Surgery

Understanding Endoscopic Micro Ear Surgery

Endoscopic micro ear surgery refers to the use of specialized endoscopic equipment to treat various ear conditions. This minimally invasive approach allows for enhanced visualization of the ear’s internal structures, leading to more precise and effective treatments. Common conditions treated include chronic ear infections, cholesteatoma, and eardrum perforations.

Indications for Endoscopic Micro Ear Surgery

  • Chronic Ear Infections: Effective treatment for recurring infections, preventing complications and improving hearing.
  • Cholesteatoma: Removal of abnormal skin growth in the middle ear.
  • Eardrum Perforations: Repair of holes in the eardrum to restore hearing and prevent infections.

Types of Endoscopic Micro Ear Surgery

  • Tympanoplasty: Repairing or reconstructing the eardrum.
  • Ossiculoplasty: Reconstruction of the small hearing bones in the middle ear.
  • Mastoidectomy: Removal of the cholesteatoma to prevent damage to ear structures, major vessels and spreading infection to brain.
