Whether your ear issue is mild or severe, we understand how conditions affecting your ears can be frustrating or painful.

We can treat simple to complex conditions affecting your ears:

  • Cholesteatoma - benign cyst in the middle ear
  • Conductive hearing loss - problem in delivering sound energy to your cochlea
  • Earaches or ear pain
  • Chronic ear infection
    • Otitis Media – middle ear infection
    • Mastoiditis – infection of the hard bone behind the ear
  • Hyperacusis – sensitive hearing
  • Meniere's disease – disease of the inner ear that can cause deafness or attacks of vertigo
  • Ostosclerosis - abnormal bone growth around one of the three small bones in the middle ear called the “stapes” 
  • Sensorineural hearing loss - damage to tiny hair cells in the cochlear and/or the auditory nerve
  • Swimmer’s ear – infection in the outer ear
  • Tinnitus – ringing in ears

How are ear issues treated?

  • Management of infection using medication
