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.
"Cross Timbers ENT opened a new location in Midlothian late 2022. Prior to this, I had been visiting their location in Mansfield. Since I reside in the Midlothian area, the convenience is great, however, the greatest attribute of the Midlothian location is the care and attention you are welcomed with when you enter the reception area where you are "happily and sincerely" greeted by Kristina Dakof and/or Kayla Burnett. These two ladies, without hesitation, will and do entertain all of your questions, assist with your scheduling needs and do their absolute best to ensure your experience with Cross Timbers Midlothian is the very best it can be. Having Kristina and Kayla as the first and last contacts the customer interacts with is a win/win for the customer and Midlothian Cross Timbers. They are two exceptionally talented associates whom Cross Timbers is fortunate to have in its employment!!!"- R.R. / Google / Jan 13, 2023
"I have experienced many ENT Doctors and office staff, this office staff and Doctors are hands down the best! They listen to patients needs and give true honest answers and care. Our normal Doctor did not have an appointment open, so we scheduled with the PA Tyler Shaw. He was great! He he gave the same level of care the Doctor would have. Excellent job!!"- K.C. / Google / Jan 10, 2023
