A NEW PROCEDURE TO ADDRESS AN OLD PROBLEM HAS FINALLY ARRIVED
For adult patients experiencing persistent symptoms of ear pain and pressure with popping and crackling sensations, an innovative solution has finally arrived.
A new minimally-invasive technique called EUSTACHIAN TUBE DILATION is now covered by Medicare and certain Medicaid plans, along with an increasing number of commercial insurances to treat this common condition.
In general, this brief in-office procedure widens the plumbing system of the ear, leading to long-term improvements in ear symptoms. Widening the Eustachian Tube takes only 15 minutes to perform, with a return to work possible the very next day. The procedure may additionally be performed while you are briefly asleep in our office, with no memory of the procedure afterward.
In addition, no long-term follow-up is required as with “ear tube” placement, and medications such as antibiotics, nasal steroids (Flonase/Nasonex) and their side effects may be avoided.
