Tympanoplasty (Eardrum Reconstruction Surgery) in India :
Tympanoplasty is a daycare surgical procedure for the reconstruction of the eardrum (tympanic membrane). This surgery may also include the reconstruction of the small bones of the middle ear (ossicles).
Tympanoplasty in India can be performed through several approaches: the ear canal, via an incision in the ear or by making an incision behind the ear. A graft may be necessary for the reconstruction of the tympanic membrane. The duration of the procedure is normally about an hour if the surgery is done through the ear canal, and about 3 hours if an incision is required. The success rate of the tympanoplasty procedure in India is over 90%.
