Mastoidectomy is a complicated surgery performed on the human skull through which the damaged mastoid air cells are removed. These cells are located inside a hollow space inside the skull, behind the ear. These are probably diseased because of a specific ear infection. The infection in these cells spreads extremely fast inside the skull and it's very important to prevent the other skull parts from getting the infection. Mastoidectomy is the ideal process for it for eradicating diseased mastoic cells from the body.
Generally, this infection in the mastoic air cells is caused by chronic otitis media. It is a disorder that occurs in the middle ear and spreads to the cells. The patients can be seen suffering from the following symptoms and they should be referred to a doctor at once.
This surgery requires a lot of precision and should be done only under the guidance of reputed oncologists.
