Ear surgeries offered at SFENTA

Tympanoplasty. Tympanoplasty is performed to fix a perforated ear drum. It’s done under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. During surgery, your doctor will remove the perforation and place a graft through a discreet incision behind the ear.

Ossiculoplasty. Ossiculoplasty is a surgery that treats conductive hearing loss. It’s done under general anesthesia and involves repairing the small bones in the inner ear to improve hearing function.

Cochlear implant. If you suffer from severe hearing loss in both ears and hearing aids are ineffective, cochlear implants may be an appropriate treatment option. To perform this procedure, your surgeon will place the implant through an incision hidden behind the ear.

Vestibular nerve section. This procedure involves cutting the vestibular nerve, which connects balance and movement sensors to the brain. The goal is to correct vertigo problems while preserving your hearing.

Labyrinthectomy. During a labyrinthectomy, your surgeon will remove the entire balance portion of the ear to address the recurrent episodes of vertigo that are associated with Meniere’s disease.

Myringotomy with tympanostomy tube placement. The goal of this treatment is to address recurrent middle ear infections. It’s the most common childhood ear surgery. During the procedure, your doctor will create a small hole in the ear drum and insert a small tube to prevent infections and allow fluid to drain freely from the middle ear.
