Micro Ear Surgery1
Micro Ear Surgery for Deafness

Service Overview

Micro ear surgery is a specialized field of otologic surgery that deals with various ear disorders through the use of an operating microscope. This high-powered microscope provides the surgeon with magnified views of the delicate structures of the ear, allowing for precise and minimally invasive procedures.

Equipment requirement for Micro Ear Surgery:

  • Operating Microscope: Provides magnification and illumination, essential for the delicate nature of ear structures.
  • Micro-instruments: Tiny, precise surgical tools designed for micro-manipulation and dissection.
  • Endoscopes: Sometimes used adjunctively for better visualization of the ear canal and middle ear.
  • Lasers: Offer precise cutting with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.
  • Image-guided Surgery Systems: These may be used in complex cases to navigate the intricate anatomy of the ear.

Indications for Micro Ear Surgery:

  1. Chronic Otitis Media: Persistent ear infections that may lead to hearing loss or discharge.
  2. Cholesteatoma: Abnormal skin growth in the middle ear that can erode bones.
  3. Otosclerosis: Abnormal bone growth in the middle ear causing hearing loss.
  4. Perforated Eardrum: Torn or hole in the eardrum, often from infections or trauma.
  5. Tumors of the Ear: Both benign and malignant growths.
  6. Congenital Malformations: Such as atresia, where the ear canal is not properly formed.
  7. Stapedectomy: Replacement of the stapes bone to treat otosclerosis.
  8. Implantable Hearing Devices: Including cochlear implants or bone-anchored hearing aids.

Micro ear surgery can restore hearing, eradicate infection, and reverse damage caused by chronic ear diseases or congenital issues. The precision of this technique reduces the risk of damage to facial nerves and other critical structures of the ear, thus ensuring better outcomes and quicker recoveries.
