Greater Miami ENT offers a wide range of ear surgery to treat our patients’ conditions. Whether suffering from hearing loss, tinnitus or damaged eardrums, our team of doctors are here to help alleviate any discomfort.

Types of Ear Surgery


In order to fix a perforated ear drum and clear any middle ear disease, a tympanoplasty is performed. Using an incision behind the ear or within the ear canal itself, the surgeon will carefully repair the perforation, using a microscope and a variety of tissue grafts.  Tympanoplasty typically takes approximately 90 minutes and is an outpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia.

Myringotomy with Tympanostomy Tube Placement

Is your child suffering from recurrent ear infections? If so, Myringotomy surgery is the most common procedure to help alleviate recurrent ear infections. During the procedure, your doctor will create a small hole in the ear drum and insert a small tube to prevent infections and allow fluid to drain properly from the middle ear.

Cochlear Implant

Cochlear implants may be necessary if you suffer from severe hearing loss and hearing aids are ineffective.  This procedure involves the implantation of a device called a cochlear implant into the inner ear, to deliver sound to the hearing nerve (the eighth cranial nerve). The procedure typically takes around 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Several weeks after surgery the device is activated and modified to fit your personal hearing needs. Proper candidates can range from infants to geriatrics, and the surgery typically has a life altering impact on communication and social interaction. Our surgeons and audiologists are regional leaders in this procedure and managing the complex needs of each patient. We carry all the latest devices and programming technology to help your loved ones hear again.


Ossiculoplasty surgery is performed to treat conductive hearing loss caused by erosion or trauma to the three smallest bones in the body, the ossicles of the middle ear. Surgery involves repairing the small bones in the inner ear, often with a tiny titanium prosthesis, and is performed under general anesthesia.

Recovery + Outlook

The recovery process for ear surgery varies but many patients experience some degree of discomfort in the treated area.  Pain medication is prescribed to help ease pain and discomfort. At home treatment by following some of the below tips will help with the recovery process:

  • Get plenty of rest
  • Avoid loud noises and physical activity
  • Follow prescribed medication directions

Most patients will experience immediate improvement of their symptoms and can expect the results to continue to improve over the next few weeks.
