If you are having trouble hearing after sustaining damage to your ear or after dealing with an ear infection, you might need surgery to help correct the problem.
Repairing your eardrum involves going through surgery to correct any tears or holes in the eardrum itself. Surgery is often used for replacing or repairing the three bones that lie behind the eardrum. Your eardrum is an extremely thin membrane that lies between the middle and outer ear. Whenever sound waves hit against it, the membrane will vibrate. Trauma and ear infections can cause damage to the structure requiring surgery. Thanks to I Need A Surgery, you can schedule your procedure through an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.
If all of the tiny bones inside of the middle ear were damaged, the surgeon will have to repair them while under a general anesthetic. Either a prosthetic device or donor bone can be used to replace yours that were damaged.
After the procedure, you are normally able to leave the hospital that same day. A cotton packing will be put in your ear. For about 5-7 days after the procedure, you will want to keep packing the ear. At times, you might end up with a bandage over the ear to keep it safe.
Eardrops are sometimes given following the surgery. Remove the packing gently and place the drops into your ear. Only put the packing back in your ear, nothing else.
Don’t let water get into the ear until you are given the okay. Avoid swimming. Always use a shower cap. Don’t blow your nose or pop your ears. If you have to sneeze, make sure your mouth stays open to avoid pressure on the eardrum.
Refrain from going to crowded places where someone might be ill. Catching a cold will only increase your chances of getting an infection.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $5,500, versus having to pay $55,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
