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.
