MGM Hospital CBD provides treatment for myringotomy with a team of skilled and experienced ENT specialists. The treatment process for myringotomy surgery may include the following:
Myringotomy is a surgical procedure performed by an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) surgeon to treat certain ear conditions, such as middle ear infections or fluid buildup. Here is a general overview of how the procedure is typically performed:
The patient is typically given local anesthesia, which numbs the ear and surrounding area, or general anesthesia, which makes the patient unconscious.
The surgeon makes a small incision in the eardrum (tympanic membrane) using a surgical instrument called a myringotomy knife or a myringotomy blade.
The surgeon may use a suction device or a small tube (a myringotomy tube or a tympanostomy tube) to drain any fluid or pus from the middle ear.
The incision in the eardrum typically heals on its own within a few weeks, but in some cases, the surgeon may place a small patch over the incision to help it heal.
