Treatment is offered for patients with hearing loss and tinnitus. Both outer ear and deeper ear infections can be treated. Painful or suspicious lesions on the ear may need excision. Reconstruction of the ear drum and ossicles (bones) can also be carried out.
Children presenting with hearing loss due to glue ear who often have speech delay may require grommets. Other causes of hearing loss can also be diagnosed and advice given.
Treatments include (but are not limited to):
- Excision of lesions of ear
- Microsuction for ear wax
- Grommet insertion
- Myringoplasty (repair of eardrum)
