What is Micro Ear Surgery?
Micro Ear Surgery is the most advanced procedure developed to treat the ear related problems. It involves the use of surgical microscope which proffers a clear and enlarged view of all the internal structures and assists to operate the ear internally with precision. As the Surgery of internal ear is quite delicate, quality instruments with advanced level of precision are required to deal with it. At our Micro Ear Surgery Clinic in Dubai, Dr. Mudazzir owns the latest and most powerful operating microscope lens at his micro ear surgery as well as ear wax removal clinic in Dubai.

The ear being such a small organ, it becomes difficult for us to see inside it properly. The human ear, being small in size and structure, is quite difficult to be diagnosed properly from inside. However, a surgical microscope provides a clear, enlarged view of all the internal structures clearly, and helps us to operate within the ear with precision. At our clinic we have the latest and most powerful lens that enables us to detect and treat a number of ear problems.
When Would You Need a Micro Ear Surgery?
A microscopic surgery may be indicated in any of the following conditions:
Are you experiencing reduced hearing, and feel your balance is off? You may have acoustic neuroma, also called vestibular schwannoma. It is a noncancerous growth on the nerve that goes from your inner ear to your brain.
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak
If you are suffering from:
Sensitivity to light and/or sound
Nausea and vomiting
Pain or stiffness in the neck
Pain between the shoulder blades
It could mean that you have a CSF leak. This is a fluid that is found around your brain and spinal cord, and protects them. A head injury, surgery, infection, or a tumor in the brain can create a hole in the meninges – the membrane that surrounds your brain. This can cause the CSF to leak.
You could have cholesteatoma if you experience the following symptoms:
Continuous or recurring discharge of watery and smelly liquid from your ear
Dizziness or vertigo
Pressure or feeling of fulness in your ear
Numbness or muscle weakness on one side of your face
Tinnitus, or hearing sounds from within your body
Cholesteatoma is a noncancerous growth in your middle ear; it could be there from birth, or occur due to some injury or repeated ear infections.
Are you experiencing any of these?
Facial spasm/ change in facial sensation
The reason could be the growth of a noncancerous cyst in a part of your skull bone, close to your middle ear. Such a cyst is made of cholesterol, other lipids, and some fluids.
Congenital or acquired ossicular chain fixation or discontinuity
Hearing loss is the most common symptom associated with this disorder. There are tiny bones in the middle ear, and their function is to send the vibrations in the eardrum to the inner ear. Some people are born with malformed, fused or missing bones; in some people this occurs due to injury, infection, surgery, or tumors.
If you have hearing loss, pain or recurring ear infections, it could be because of an osteoma. This is a noncancerous growth that occurs in the bones around your ear canal, and it grows slowly.
Your hearing loss could be due to this hereditary disease. The stapes, a bone in your middle ear becomes fixed and becomes unable to transmit the sounds to the inner ear.
Are you hearing your heartbeat inside your ear -without a stethoscope? A glomus tumor or paraganglioma could be the reason. This is a rare tumor that occurs in either your middle ear or the temporal bone; it is usually not cancerous.
This is a very common condition; if you experience the following symptoms, you could have ruptured your eardrum:
Recurring ear ache
Pus or blood filled mucus like fluid oozing from your ear
Tinnitus or ringing sensation in your ear
Nausea or vomiting
This can be caused by any number of reasons like injury to the head, an infection in your middle ear, a foreign object in your ear (ear buds are the most common culprits), or due to quick pressure changes, like in air travel.
Temporal bone encephalocele
Conductive hearing loss, meningitis (inflammation of the membrane surrounding the brain), leakage of CSF are the symptoms of this condition.
An injury, surgery or ear infection may sometimes cause some brain tissue to come out of your skull. A temporal bone encephalocele then develops in the skull bone, at the base and sides of your skull.
This is usually asymptomatic, with conductive hearing loss being the only possible manifestation of this problem. If you have recurrent or chronic ear infections, new bone tissue, scar tissue or calcium deposits may develop in your middle ear. When only your eardrum is affected, it is called myringosclerosis.
When Should you Consult your ENT Surgeon?
Whenever you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it is advisable to seek medical help
Nausea and vomiting
Pressure in ear
Any discharge from the ear
When you come in for a consultation, we will conduct a thorough examination, make you undergo a hearing test, and check your medical history before we recommend a treatment plan. We will try to treat your condition with medication and depending on the results, we will decide the future course of action.

Q1. Why do I need a hearing test?
A: An audiogram or hearing test helps us to understand if you have hearing loss, and to assess your inner ear thoroughly so that we can identify the reason. If you do have hearing loss, an audiogram also helps us to determine the extent of that loss. This is very helpful in forming an effective treatment plan for you.
Q#2. Is it absolutely necessary to undergo surgery?
A: We will recommend you for surgery if we are convinced that it is the only way to treat your condition. Of course, we don’t start off with surgery; we first try to resolve your problem with medication. If it does not help in treating your ear problems, we will re-evaluate your condition, and then take a call.
Q#3. Will I require a hospital stay for my surgery?
A. In most cases, you will be allowed to go home a while after your surgery. You will be kept under observation after your surgery, and if all seems normal, you can go home. If we feel that you need to be under medical supervision overnight, you will be asked to stay overnight at the hospital.
Q#4. How long will my micro ear surgery take?
A. The surgery to repair your perforated eardrum can take anything from 10 minutes to 3 hours, depending on how big the perforation is, and where it is located.
Q#5. Will I be operated on when awake?
A. We can perform the surgery with a local anesthetic where you will be awake but won’t feel anything; we can also put you under general anesthesia where you will be asleep and won’t know anything at all. We will have a detailed discussion before the surgery and finalize on the method.
Q#6. What precautions do I need to take after the surgery?
A. It’s important to be careful after your surgery:
Do NOT put anything in your ears, other than eardrops if we prescribe them.
