Muffled hearing, earache, and chronic ear infection – about 1 percent of all adults experience painful symptoms related to Eustachian Tube Dysfunction (ETD). In the past, the inconvenience of traditional ear tube surgery was one option to provide sufferers with relief.
Sophisticated Alternative to Invasive Ear Tube Surgery
The sophisticated Eustachian Tube Dilation procedure treats persistent ETD at its source, providing relief from chronic ear infection, ear pain and muffled hearing.
Easy ETD Treatment for Indianapolis Patients
When normal function of the Eustachian tube becomes impaired, the body is unable to maintain pressure in the ear. This condition leads to chronic ear infection, ear ringing (tinnitus) and impaired hearing.
Safe, Convenient, Effective Relief for Chronic Ear Infection Sufferers
Our skilled team of Ear Nose and Throat specialists performs the Eustachian Tube Dilation procedure in the Indianapolis-area offices of Southern Indiana ENT. This easy treatment will allow the Eustachian tube to regain healthy function, relieving patients’ symptoms. During the procedure, a slender catheter is used to precisely insert a tiny balloon into the Eustachian tube. The balloon is gently inflated to restore proper airflow. The balloon is then deflated, and the catheter is removed. Patients enjoy fast, effective relief with no cutting or invasive surgery, no ear tubes, and quick recovery.
