Earwax forms naturally in the outer portion of the ear canal. Often, it is pushed deeper into the canal which can cause a range of issues from muffled hearing to eardrum injuries. Our doctors can assist with the safe removal of earwax blockages and help you learn how to safely and effectively clean your ears.
Ear infections are caused when bacteria and viruses enter the body. If left untreated, they can cause severe pain, balance issues, or even permanent hearing loss. While common in children, adults are often affected as well. We treat ear infections in patients of all ages. If infections return, our doctors can guide you in continued treatment or lifestyle changes that may help.
A perforated eardrum is a rupture that is often caused by injury to the head or ear. Patients can experience some hearing loss and liquid discharge that can lead to infection. Our ENT specialists can diagnose and treat this injury while monitoring your hearing for signs of improvement.
When people experience dizziness, vertigo, or general unsteadiness, ear disorders are often the culprit. This is because the inner ear plays a vital role in our vestibular (balance) system. Balance issues are one of the more complex disorders to diagnose, but a doctor who specializes in the auditory system can help.
Tinnitus - a persistent ringing in the ears - is one of the most frustrating ear issues a person can endure. Since it is often a symptom of an underlying disorder, it is important to seek medical care early on. There are numerous treatment options that can address the core issue or make the noise less noticeable.
