Microtia is a congenital birth defect in which the external ear does not develop properly. Microtia occurs in different variations, ranging from small ear to complete absence of the ear. Microtia can affect normal ear canal, eardrum, and middle ear bones. In very few cases, it is seen that the ear canal is small or absent. Microtia surgery in Mumbai (India) is performed by Dr. Parag Telang at The Microtia Trust. Children with microtia can hear some sound even if they don’t have ear canal since the nerve used for hearing often functions normally. The cause of microtia is still under research, but sometimes, problems during pregnancy and genetic factors are considered the main factors for microtia to occur. Dr. Parag also performs the tympanoplasty or eardrum surgery that helps to repair the hole in the eardrum and helps to improve hearing and middle functioning of the ear.
