In brief: Ear tubes
It is a simple procedure but can get complicated so Usually performed as a surgery in the Operating Room

I do this all the time in adults.
Very simple procedure done under topical anesthia. I use phenol. It stings for about 10 seconds and then it is gone. Placment in the office take maybe 5 mintues.. For both ears..Very simple.
