Total Ear Canal Ablation with Lateral Bulla Osteotomy, ‘TECA-LBO’, is a pain relieving salvage procedure for dogs suffering with severe, chronic ear infections and also appropriate for mass lesions within the ear canal.

It’s one of the most frequently referred soft-tissue surgical procedures we see at A30 Referrals.

The magnifying eye pieces and light source may make Colin look like an extra in Star Trek, but they aid the removal of deep infected tissue adjacent to the inner ear.
