Mastoidectomy to Treat Cholesteatoma or Ear Infection (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Your child needs an operation to take away part of the bone from behind the ear. This operation is called a mastoidectomy (say: MAST-oid-ECK-toe-mee). This operation will be performed by an otolarygology (say OH-toe-lar-ing-olo-gee) doctor. This brochure explains what will happen during the operation and how to care for your child at home. Audio available. (English)
