Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery (TEES) ?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Today I was diagnosed with a cholesteatoma and advised I would need a modified radical mastoidectomy. I was given an information sheet, and am now seeking further information on the condition.

In my search, I have found a medical article published about 6 months ago titled "Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery for Congenital Cholesteatoma". If you search for that, you should be able to find the same article. The conclusion stated in the article was that this TEES (i.e. endoscopic) approach has many benefits. It also appears there are not many surgeons who can currently perform this procedure.

Has anyone here with cholesteatoma had this TEES procedure to address their condition, and if so, what was your experience and recovery like?
