providerchildear.jpgHearing loss, ear infections, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus), nerve pain, and arthritis of the ear can all be diagnosed and treated by otolaryngologists. Corrective surgery can sometimes reverse or stop hearing loss.

Ear tubes
Ear tube insertion is a common procedure in which tubes are placed in the ears of children who suffer from ear infections. The tubes help keep fluids from building up in the ear. The tubes generally fall out within eight to 10 months of insertion.

Hearing testing
Hearing testing measures and identifies hearing loss. The tests are performed by an audiologist at Mid Dakota Clinic. They take about 15 minutes and are painless. Hearing aids today are generally digital, meaning they are high quality, dependable, and discreet. Different models effectively restore hearing for a variety of hearing losses. The latest in hearing aids are available through the Audiology Department at Mid Dakota Clinic. Sudden hearing loss in one ear may result in permanent hearing loss. Someone experiencing a sudden hearing loss should see an audiologist or ear, nose, and throat doctor immediately.

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is performed to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The surgery is usually done on children between the ages of four and 14.
