How Much Does a Myringotomy Cost?

A myringotomy is a surgical procedure that corrects a blocked Eustachian tube or the narrow passage that links the pharynx to the middle ear.  The surgery is performed by creating a tiny incision in the eardrum to drain pus or ease the pressure that resulted from the excessive accumulation of fluid from the middle ear.

Depending on the condition, a tympanostomy tube may or may not be inserted into the eardrum.  The ear tube is meant to keep the middle ear ventilated and to inhibit the re-accumulation of fluid.  This tube may be removed through a minor procedure or it may just naturally fall out after six to 12 months.  Without the tube insertion, however, the incision may heal in two to three weeks.
