How Much Do Tubes in Ears Cost?

Inserting tubes in the ears is one of the most common outpatient procedure performed on children in the United States.  In fact, about 700,000 children each year have these tubes surgically placed to help drain fluid and relieve pressure.

Ear tubes are often considered if fluid persists in both ears for longer than three months at a time and/or when a child has well over the average number of ear infections for their age.

Also referred to as a tympanostomy tube insertion, the surgery is performed on children who have had severe ear infections that have affected their sense of hearing. The procedure treats the middle ear fluid, which, when it persists, can result in serious ear infections and/or hearing loss.
