The most common ear disorders we diagnose and treat include ear infections, hearing loss, tinnitus, ear pain, and vertigo/dizziness. Disorders of the ears commonly affect people of all ages, causing significant impairment in how we hear the world around us and maintain good balance. In children, ear infections are still one of the most common diagnoses leading to antibiotic prescriptions. Ventilation tubes can be required to suction out fluid and prevent additional infections. In adults, some forms of hearing loss can be treated with medications or with surgery to treat the underlying cause and restore hearing. Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, affects over 50 million Americans, and approximately 1 out of 5 feel it negatively impacts their quality of life. Ear pain can be caused by problems with the ear itself, or referred pain from another structure such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, eustachian tube dysfunction, or throat infection. Eustachian tube balloon dilation is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in the office to treat this condition. And lastly, an inner ear condition can cause vertigo, an abnormal sensation of motion affecting balance. One of the most common causes of vertigo, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), can be treated and cured in the office in minutes by performing repositioning maneuvers.
