Endoscopic Ear Surgery - CMC
Appointment

Endoscopic ear surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat various conditions affecting the ear. It involves using a small endoscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light at the end, to visualize the ear canal and middle ear without making a large incision.

Endoscopic ear surgery can be used to treat a range of conditions, including cholesteatoma, otosclerosis, and chronic ear infections. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and may involve making a small incision in the ear canal or behind the ear.

Benefits of endoscopic ear surgery include less pain, faster recovery time, and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery. The procedure is also associated with improved visualization of the surgical site and improved precision of surgical instruments.

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications associated with endoscopic ear surgery. These may include bleeding, infection, and damage to surrounding structures in the ear.

If you are considering endoscopic ear surgery, it is important to consult with an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist to determine if the procedure is right for you. Your doctor can provide you with more information on the risks and benefits of the procedure and help you make an informed decision about your treatment options.

Endoscopic ear surgery is a surgical procedure that can be used to treat a variety of conditions affecting the ear. The specific treatment approach will depend on the underlying condition and the extent of the problem.

Some common conditions that can be treated with endoscopic ear surgery include:

  1. Cholesteatoma: Endoscopic ear surgery can be used to remove a cholesteatoma, which is a growth of skin cells in the middle ear.
  2. Otosclerosis: The procedure can be used to treat otosclerosis, which is a condition where abnormal bone growth in the middle ear leads to hearing loss.
  3. Chronic ear infections: Endoscopic ear surgery can be used to treat chronic ear infections by removing damaged tissue or draining accumulated fluid.
  4. Tympanic membrane perforation: The procedure can be used to repair a hole in the eardrum, which can be caused by injury, infection, or other factors.

Endoscopic ear surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and may involve making a small incision in the ear canal or behind the ear. The surgeon uses an endoscope, which is a small, flexible tube with a camera and light at the end, to visualize the ear canal and middle ear. Surgical instruments are then passed through the endoscope to perform the necessary procedure.

Recovery time after endoscopic ear surgery will depend on the specific procedure performed and the extent of the problem being treated. Your doctor will provide you with specific postoperative instructions to follow, including recommendations for pain management, activity restrictions, and follow-up care.v
