Minimally-Invasive In-Office ETD Relief
When Eustachian Tube Dysfunction (ETD) occurs,
this means that the body cannot maintain pressure in the ears. This can cause
muffled or difficult hearing. It can also lead to swelling of the Eustachian
tube, which allows bacteria to grow inside the ear. The result is infection, ear
pain and earache.
Relieve Pain and Muffled Hearing Due to Chronic Ear Infection
ETD is a common cause of painful, recurring ear infections, difficulty hearing, and ear ringing (tinnitus). Treating ETD at the source is the only way to provide patients with long-lasting relief.
Pain and symptoms due to Eustachian Tube Dysfunction will persist until the root cause of dysfunction and infection is addressed. Medications or traditional, invasive ear tube surgery have been used to treat Eustachian Tube Dysfunction in the past.
Clinically-Proven, Modern Alternative to Ear Tube Surgery
Athens ENT & Allergy Center is proud to offer this incredible clinically-proven in-office procedure to bring ETD relief to Texas patients without the inconvenience of surgery.
During the innovative procedure, a catheter is used to precisely place a tiny balloon into the Eustachian tube. The balloon is carefully inflated, gently expanding the tube. When the balloon is deflated, the catheter is easily removed, restoring airflow and proper Eustachian tube function. Patients will experience relief of pain related to ETD with no incisions and with a speedy recovery time.
