At Midwest ENT we offer complete, specialized ear care, ranging from cleaning ear wax to surgical treatment.
Painful ear infections are a rite of passage for children – by the age of five, nearly every child has experienced at least one episode. Most ear infections either resolve on their own (viral) or are effectively treated by antibiotics (bacterial). But sometimes, ear infections and/or fluid in the middle ear may become a chronic problem leading to other issues such as hearing loss, behavior, and speech problems. In these cases, insertion of an ear tube by an otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat surgeon) may be considered.

Did you know that there are approximately 31.5 million Americans who suffer from hearing loss (according to the Better Hearing Institute)? This means that hearing loss affects 10% of the US population. Hearing loss does not discriminate by age or gender and can have a significant impact on an individual’s life. For children, hearing loss can delay speech and language development or interfere with education. Adults who have hearing loss can be excluded from conversations, gatherings, and meetings.
