Ear Microscopy Examination

The microscope allows for the accurate removal of ear wax (cerumen), foreign bodies and for the performance of a small incision through the layers of the tympanic membrane in order to relieve the middle-ear of the accumulated fluid. Ventilation tubes (grommets) may also be placed to allow for better drainage of the middle-ear fluid. Furthermore, endotympanic medical therapies may also be achieved with ear microscopy.
