Chronic Otitis Media and Myringotomy Tubes

The most common surgical procedure in children is the placement of myringotomy tubes.  The surgical procedure is brief (approximately 5 minutes), is done under a brief gas-only anesthesia, results in no significant post-op pain or recovery (oftentimes the relief of pressure and infection results in immediate noticeable change in behavior and demeanor of the child), and the child can return to school or daycare the next day if necessary.  While tube placement is often a highly beneficial procedure, it is not necessary for every child with ear infections.  Dr. Shirley has experience in diagnosing and making treatment decisions on many thousands of children with recurrent ear infections and pressure problems and at ENT for Kids Alabama we will perform a complete history and physical exam and most likely a full audiological evaluation and then make a carefully considered decision with the family about whether the procedure would be beneficial for your child.
