Earfold treatment

Earfold is a new treatment for the correction of prominent ears (bat ears, jug ears, sticky-out ears) in children and adults.

With this procedure, the patient is in the driving position as they can determine the future position of their ears, along with their surgeon, before the operation. It is less invasive than traditional surgery, with a shorter recovery, no bulky bandages and can be done under local anaesthetic in a few minutes.

The East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust is the first NHS trust in the country to offer this procedure.

As most private hospitals do not offer surgery to children under 18 years of age, we are currently the only NHS Trust in the country who can offer this surgery to children (private and NHS) and one of the few offering it to adults (private).
