Endoscopic Ear Surgery, also known as Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery (TEES) is one of the ultra-modern surgical innovations used to operate the minute and delicate structures located within the middle ear. The human ear possesses relatively tiny structures including three bones of the middle ear, known as ossicles. Using traditional ear surgery techniques, the ENT professionals had to access the middle ear through an incision behind the ear. But with the advent of Endoscopic Ear Surgeon In Dubai, the ENT Surgeons make access to the middle ear through the ear canal with the dual benefits of minimal pain and fast recovery.
The endoscopes make the ENT surgeons have a broader look behind the bony ledges and around the corners to bring the best outcomes for the surgery done.

Such leakage can be congenital or acquired from trauma, surgery or infection.
