What is Grommet's surgery?
Grommets Surgery is when tiny plastic tubes are put in the eardrum. This is done during a short operation under general anesthetic. The grommets are inserted after the fluid in the middle ear has been drained away. The grommets allow air to circulate in the middle ear and stop more fluid from building up. They can clear the fluid inside a child's ears and improve his/her hearing. They are used for children with chronic ear infections.
