Treatment for Ear diseases in Bangalore

Ear is one of the five sense organs located on the face. It is an organ of hearing. It is divided into 3 parts. Outer ear is made of the Pinna, the external auditory canal and the Tympanic membrane (ear drum). Middle ear is an air filled space which lodges the ossicles (smallest bones in the body) and connects to the mastoid posteriorly and the Eustachian tube anteriorly.
