My son has had fluid problems in his ear since birth. He has already had 3 sets of ear tubes, the last set in Aug. In Jan, his ENT sent us to CHOP as he couldn't do any more for him. The specialist at CHOP said his left ear drum is severely retracted and the tube from Aug had fallen out. He is not even sure he can get another tube in. If we do not reverse this, it can lead to major complications besides just hearing loss. Their office sees only a small percentage of children in this situation. I am looking for advice and assistance. I want to find the Best of the Best in the US to treat him. How do I find this out? I want to find specialist who sees this all the time, not a small %.
