An ENT doctor can tell if you have a ruptured eardrum by using an otoscope, which is an instrument that has a magnifier with a light, designed to look inside the ear. Other tests may include a tympanogram (a burst of air against the eardrum), or an audiogram (hearing test).
Actually, there are a lot of procedures available to treat the condition in-ears such as perforated or damaged eardrum, ear pain or discharge from the ear. When these procedures fail, then only surgery is prescribed. Tympanoplasty is reconstructive surgery of punctured eardrum. It may require making a small incision above the ear canal to approach the repair while the patient is under anesthetic. Otoscopy is used to assess the mobility of the malleus and the tympanic membrane. Several techniques have been developed, refined and both medical & lateral grafting techniques are used depending on the condition.
Advantages of our treatment include:
- Improved hearing
- Fast recovery
- Less painful
- Reconstruction of the eardrum
