A cholesteatoma is a cyst that forms behind the eardrum and grows in size over time. It can cause issues like pain and hearing loss.
The surgery to remove cholesteatoma usually lasts two to three hours under general anesthesia. An incision will be made behind or in front of the ear to remove the bone surrounding the cholesteatoma. Some cases may require the removal of the ear canal bone.
Dizziness can be caused by vertigo and by disequilibrium. This condition can be treated with canalith repositioning surgery if it is caused by benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It involves holding four positions for 30 seconds each until the dizziness stops and holding it for 30 seconds more after the symptoms have ended.
Excess ear wax can be treated with ear irrigation, earwax solution, or in-office earwax removal. Typical solutions used include saline, glycerin, baby oil, hydrogen peroxide, and mineral oil. During earwax removal by our medical professionals, we might use a cerumen spoon, irrigation, forceps, or suction device.
The Eustachian tubes are structures in the ear that equalize pressure. Eustachian tube dysfunction occurs when there is a blockage in these tubes. The problem may be resolved by yawning, swallowing, or chewing gum to correct the ear pressure. If these don’t work, saline sprays and medications such as pain relievers, antihistamines, and antibiotics may be used. Some cases may require myringotomy or Eustachian tuboplasty.
This medical condition may be treated through earwax removal, surgery, new medications, cochlear implants, hearing aids, antibiotics, and sound-enhancing technologies.
When a hole forms in the eardrum due to injury or infection, it results in issues like pain and hearing loss. This problem can be addressed with a prescription antibiotic or surgery, where the eardrum is fixed using a small piece of tissue from in front of or behind the ear.
Tinnitus is an ear condition that causes the patient to hear a continuous or intermittent ringing or buzzing noise. This condition may be treated through earwax removal, wearing hearing aids, earwax removal, treating a blood vessel problem, or switching to another medication.
