What is eardrum repair?
Eardrum repair is a surgical procedure that is used to mend a damaged eardrum (tympanic membrane). It's typically performed when there is a significant hole or tear in the eardrum that cannot heal on its own. There are various causes of eardrum damage, such as injury, trauma, advanced age, or illness. If left untreated, deterioration of the eardrum can lead to permanent hearing loss. At Cross Timbers ENT, our seasoned physicians are highly trained and skilled in fixing impaired eardrums. Reach out to our office in Midlothian, Arlington, or Mansfield, TX to book an appointment with our expert team.

"I have had horrible allergies for years. Prior to coming to Crosstimbers ENT, I had as many as 5 sinus infections each year, which meant I had as many rounds of antibiotics prescribed by my GP. Since opting for a relationship with Crosstimbers, I have learned effective alternative methods of controlling my sinus issues. I still have allergies, but I haven't had a sinus infection in nearly 3 years. Thanks to Allergy Specialist, Jennifer Taylor, she has identified my allergies and she is doing an awesome job of helping me overcome my issues. Thanks Jennifer Taylor, Jennifer Paris and Dr Shellenberger."- D.B. / Google / May 12, 2021
