The ear is a complicated structure and understanding some of the diseases which affect the ear and the different ear operations can be confusing. It is difficult to remember everything the doctor tells you in the out patient clinic and to my patients I'm sure you will forget some of the detailed explanations I give you in the clinic. This web site will allow you to go over those explanations in your own time.

If you are offered an operation it is important to understand what you are having done, why it is being done and the risks of the operation.
