There are a few approaches to ear surgery.
Some operations can be carried out via the ear canal without the need for any other incision around the ear. This route is known as a permeatal or transmeatal approach. This approach is most commonly used for such ear conditions as otosclerosis or the insertion of grommets.
However, more frequently an incision around the ear is required to allow greater access to the middle ear, mastoid or inner ear. Sometimes this may be carried out through an incision just in front of the ear.
A common alternative to this route, which gives even greater exposure, is a post-aural incision which means an incision through the skin behind the ear. To discuss your ear surgery needs in more detail please contact us.
