Stony Point Surgery Center Surgeons

Specialty - Ear

Your ear is made up of three main parts: the outer ear (the part you see and the ear canal) collects and funnels sound to the ear drum; the middle ear space containing tiny bones transmitting the sound from the ear drum to the inner ear, and the inner ear, which transmits both sound and balance information to the brain. Common ear problems may range from heavy wax in the canal, to the common middle ear infections seen in children, to balance and hearing issues. Ear, nose and throat specialists (otolaryngologists) diagnose and treat these problems.

    An eardrum becomes ruptured when there is a tear or hole in the eardrum, which is the thin tissue that separates your middle ear from your ear canal.

    Ear tubes in children work within the ear to prevent the reoccurrence of chronic ear infections. An ear tube is placed in the middle ear and allows ventilation within the ear. Typically the set of ear tubes will fall out on their own, and most children only need one set and their ear infections resolve.

    Many children with large ears that stick out tend to have to deal with teasing and/or bullying in school. Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is when the ears are pinned to the skin behind them, and the scar is typically hidden by the ear.
