    Ear Tubes Directory

    Ear tubes are common treatments for recurrent child ear infections, hearing loss, or speech delay. The tubes are surgically placed in the eardrum to drain the fluid and relieve pressure. Children with ear tubes will need routine checkups to be sure there are no complications. Tubes may need to be in place for up to a year or more before they fall out or are surgically removed. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how ear tubes are inserted, why they are used, and much more.
