The eardrum (tympanic membrane) is between the outer ear and the middle ear. The eardrum vibrates when sound waves strike it. When the eardrum is damaged or has a hole in it, hearing may be reduced and ear infections may be more likely. Tympanoplasty refers to one or more surgical procedures that are done to correct a tear or other damage to the eardrum (tympanic membrane). A ruptured eardrum is also known as a perforated eardrum or a tympanic membrane perforation can lead to complications such as middle ear infections and hearing loss. It may also require surgery to repair the damage to the eardrum. Eardrums may also be perforated as a result of trauma, such as an object in the ear, a slap on the ear, or an explosion. In cases where the perforation is very small then the ENT surgeon may opt for myringoplasty which is a smaller procedure than tynmpanoplasty and can be done on day care basis.
Perforations occur as a result of defects in the middle layer, which contains elastic collagen fibers. Small perforations usually heal spontaneously. However, if the defect is relatively large, or if there is a poor blood supply or an infection during the healing process, spontaneous repair may be hindered.
The tympanoplasty surgery aims at putting the ear drum graft back so that the hearing can be restored. The surgery is done either under local or general anaesthesia depending upon th ecomfort level of the patient. In case it is done under local anaesthesia then patient can leave the same day else next day.ENT Surgeon in India prefers to perform the surgery through the ear cannal only so that no external cut is made. It is done through microscope hence needs precision and best techniques to get the best results. The graft for the ear drum is taken from under the hairs.

A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience.

The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
