Ear Tubes - Tympanostomy
A tympanostomy is a procedure that facilitates the drainage of excess fluid within the ear.
During the procedure, a tiny incision is made in the eardrum to suction any fluid and to insert
an ear tube. This tube will allow to keep the hole open and facilitate the ongoing drainage of
infected fluid from the middle ear. The ear tubes remain from 6 to 9 months and usually fall out
on their own. The incision heals and has no effect on the eardrum.
