IT'S NOT WAX, BUT YOUR EARS FEEL PLUGGED UP

ANNOYED AND FRUSTRATED WITH YOUR EARS FEELING PLUGGED UP, FULL, OR WITH PAIN?

WHAT IS EUSTACHIAN TUBE DYSFUNCTION​

Eustachian tube dysfunction is a broad term used for when the tubes are not working properly and unable to open and equalize pressures in the middle ear. In children, this is a common problem resulting in frequent ear infections. In adults, it may occur due to allergies, sinus inflammation, or dysfunction of the muscles that open the tubes. The result is having the sensation that your ears have pressure & pain, or feel plugged up and full.

Yawning or popping the ears or even swallowing helps open the eustachian tubes and in neutralizing the pressures inside the middle ear.

HOW DOES EUSTACHIAN TUBE BALLOON DILATION WORK?​

Eustachian tube balloon dilation is a novel cutting-edge technology to improve the function of the eustachian tube. The eustachian tubes are tubes or channels that connect the back of the nose on either side with the middle ears behind the eardrum. Their role is to equalize the atmospheric pressure on either side of the eardrum. Muscles that open and close the tubes on either side help with equalizing this pressure, especially during flights, swimming, change in weather, scuba diving.

During the quick 15-20 min procedure, a balloon is placed in the affected eustachian tube and dilated for 2 minutes to open the eustachian tubes as the problem occurs when the eustachian tube is not opening and equalizing the pressure. The goal of dilating the tube is to restore the normal tube function and ameliorate the problem.

Dr. K and his staff were absolutely wonderful. I called them as a new patient and they were able to see me that day! Dr. K's gentle touch and attentiveness to his patients are very comforting. I hope that this doesn't become a regular visit thing but if it does then he is the one I going to continue to see. Highly recommend!
