Chronic otitis media, by Dr. Carlos Gimeno

Dr. Carlos Gimeno, otolaryngologist at the Centro Integral de Otorrinolaringología (CIO), explains what chronic otitis media is and its treatment at CIO: “The treatment of chronic otitis media or recurrent middle ear suppurations and cholesteatoma, which is a benign, slow-growing cyst in the middle ear, is surgical.The surgery we use is called tympanoplasty. Its objectives are the extraction of all this pathological material, to obtain a dry middle ear without suppurations and to obtain a closed eardrum.In this surgery we use the patient’s own grafts such as ear cartilage and even auditory prostheses to recover the hearing function.At Centro Integral de Otorrinolaringología (CIO) we are specialists in the diagnosis of these pathologies and in the performance of their surgical treatment“.
