At The Barranco Clinic, we pride ourselves on the utmost quality of care from our wide network of specialists and experts who can diagnose and treat your issues quickly.

Complicated Ear Disorder Treatment

The first step is for our team of vetted ENT specialists to evaluate your ears and understand the root of your disorder. We will delve into your medical history and will perform a detailed physical exam along with thorough diagnostic testing. A personalized treatment plan will then be created to help resolve your concerns. Some of the treatments we may conduct include:

Ear Tubes

These devices allow excess fluid to be successfully drained from the ears. The procedure takes around 20 minutes and is performed using local anesthesia.

Chronic Ear Infection Surgery

Surgery can be performed to correct abnormalities in the ear bone or repair the eardrum. This can help prevent future infections from occurring.

Tumors of the Ear

An ear tumor is typically a benign growth or mass of abnormal cells in the inner or middle ear, causing difficulty with hearing, balance, and other functions. An ear tumor is removed with a surgical procedure to help restore hearing and balance and restore the function of the ear. The tumor is removed through an incision in the middle ear or window incision in the skull.

Reconstruction of Middle Ear Bones (Ossicular Chain Reconstruction)

During this procedure, the eardrum and the middle ear bones are reconstructed, or in some cases, all three of the middle ear bones are replaced. During surgery, the eardrum is elevated and the small bones called ossicles are examined. If the ossicles are in good condition, one bone will be removed and sculpted into the correct shape. It will then be positioned newly to reconnect the ossicular chain.

Eardrum Repair

If the eardrums have been compromised due to loud noises, trauma, or ear infections, the patients may experience a host of symptoms such as nausea, discomfort, and hearing loss. Our qualified surgeons can perform a grafting procedure to repair perforations and ruptures in the eardrums.
