Leading Expertise in Endoscopic Ear Surgery
Transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES) is minimally invasive surgery to operate on tiny, delicate structures within the middle ear. It differs from traditional ear surgery in that surgeons access the middle ear through the ear canal rather than through an incision behind the ear. This causes less pain and results in a faster recovery.
Most middle-ear conditions that we treat with TEES are not life-threatening, but they can greatly affect a person’s quality of life. As these conditions progress, they can destroy nearby structures, such as the ear bones, facial nerve, and inner ear. Surgery is often necessary to avoid complications such as hearing loss, facial paralysis, balance problems, or brain infections such as meningitis, which can be life-threatening.
