  1. Examination of ear using microscope

    We use the latest high resolution microscope to examine your ears. This allows accurate diagnosis of your ear conditions.

  2. Hearing assessment

    We arrange your hearing to be assessed using pure tone audiograms and other sophisticated hearing tests including otoacoustic emissions, speech discrimination test, brainstem evoked auditory responses and etc.

  3. Ear wax removal

    We use the microscope and suction device to remove impacted cerumen and foreign bodies in your ears.

  4. Ear infection treatment

    Infections of the outer and middle ears are treated with oral antibiotic and topical anti-microbial drops. Your infected ear canals are toileted using microsuction.

  5. Glue ear (middle ear fluid) treatment and Ventilation tube insertion

    Your middle ear fluids are treated with medication first. Failing that, aspiration of the fluid and insertion of ventilation tube (grommet) can be the next option.

  6. Ear drum repair (Myringoplasty)

    Perforation of ear drum can be due to middle ear infection or barotrauma. If the hole fails to heal, we can surgically repair your ear drum.

  7. Hearing restoration surgery (ossiculoplasty and stapedectomy)

    Sound is transmitted from our ear drum to the inner ear via three small bones in our middle ear. If there is a break/gap between the three bones, sound conduction can be impeded and you may experience hearing loss. The bone gap can be bridged by inserting a tiny prosthesis in the middle ear. The operation is called ossiculoplasty.
    On the other hand, one of the three bones in the middle ear can get stiff from disease (e.g. otosclerosis). The stiff bone (stapes) can also be replaced surgically. The operation is called stapedectomy.

  8. Removal of cholesteatoma (Mastoidectomy)

    Discharging ear and deafness can be caused by infection of the middle ear. Cholesteatoma can be seen as a "skin cyst" in the middle ear. It erodes the bone of the ear away with time. Surgical removal of the cholesteatoma (mastoidectomy) is the treatment of choice.

  9. Excision of ear canal exostosis

    Exostoses of the ear canal are more common in surfers and cold water swimmers. Exostoses can trap debris and foreign materials leading to otitis externa. If not treated for years, exostoses can completely block the ear canals leading to deafness. Surgical excision of exostosis can be an option if symptoms become bothersome.

  10. Dizziness (Vertigo) management

    Vertigo can be due to Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Meniere's disease, perilymph fistula and inner ear infection. A range of treatment options inclusive of Epley's manoeurve, vestibular sedatives, Meniett's device and surgery are available.
