Ear, Nose, and Throat - Otology, Neurotology, & Skull Base Surgery


Cholesteatoma is a benign locally destructive skin cyst that involves the ear. It is typically located in the middle ear and is associated with chronic ear infections. Symptoms can range based on severity, but patients typically have chronic ear drainage and hearing loss. If left untreated, cholesteatoma can lead to serious side effects. Surgery is generally the treatment of choice. We are equipped to provide the most up to date diagnostic testing and treatment for cholesteatoma. Please request an appointment today to be seen and evaluated.
