Eustachian Tube Dysfunction

ETD Treatment Can Provide Long-Lasting Relief

This sophisticated procedure treats persistent Eustachian Tube Dysfunction (ETD) at its source, providing adult patients with long-lasting relief.

Approximately 1 percent of all adults experience symptoms related to Eustachian Tube Dysfunction.

Impairment of normal function of the Eustachian tube means that the body cannot maintain pressure in the ear, which leads to persistent, painful ear infections, hearing impairment, and tinnitus.

Clinically Proven In-Office ETD Treatment to Relieve Chronic Ear Pain

Traditionally, medications or ear tube surgery have been used to treat Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. However, painful symptoms related to ETD cannot be cured without addressing the underlying source of chronic symptoms and infection.

Chronic Ear Infections, ETD Treatment
Gentle Relief for Chronic Ear Infection Sufferers

During the Eustachian tube dilation procedure, a catheter is used to insert a small balloon into the Eustachian tube via the patient’s nose. The balloon is inflated to gently expand the tube. The balloon is then deflated and removed, restoring airflow and allowing the Eustachian tube to regain proper function. Patients will experience fast, effective relief in a clinical setting without the inconvenience of hospital visits.
