Scarless Ear surgery

At Ahluwalia hospital, our ear surgery specialists (neurotologists) have years of training and experience in minimally invasive transcanal endoscopic ear surgery. Our surgeons use advanced techniques to treat conditions such as infections, hearing loss, and tumors.

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.

The following are some of the most notable advantages:

  • A wider and more angled view of the delicate structures in the middle ear can be seen through the endoscope.
  • There is no requirement for range, curettage and canalplasty of the outer ear canal.
  • Large incisions would not be required for the procedure like endaural or postauricular incisions.
  • The time required for the operation is must shorter.
  • The cosmetic outcomes of the surgery are much better.
  • The post-operative pain is much less and recovery is also quicker.
  • The deep, hidden structures, like the facial recess, the anterior tympanic perforation and hypotympanum can be seen directly.
  • The monitor that is used during the surgery offers the necessary visual content.
  • The images are clear and have high definition.
  • The views of multiple angles can be obtained at the same time.
