Ear canal operation

There may be deformations in the exterior ear canal caused by new bone formations that produce recurring inflammation and total closure of the ear canal. We often find these cases in swimmers, scuba divers, and surfers because they are in constant contact with the water. It is believed that low water temperatures encourage bone restructuring.

In these cases the excess bone is removed under general or local anaesthesia.
