Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern and here I would like to say that if your daughter is having an acute perforation of eardrum then that may heal by consecutive medical treatment. On the other hand, if it is a chronic perforation then surgery is the only treatment. Usually surgical results are good and the patient gets cured but unfortunately, sometimes complications develop like the failure of surgery by a rejection of the graft, hearing loss, recurrence of discharge, facial palsy.
