Surfer’s Ear Treatment Tour in Osaka, Japan

We provide safe treatment for surfer’s ear at Oiki Ear and Nose Clinic, Osaka, Japan. We mainly use chisels for surfer’s ear surgery to avoid sensory neural hearing loss due to drilling noise. Moreover, chisel technique is a better procedure to preserve the skin of the ear canal so it leads to an earlier recovery.

We always try to discuss and confirm the diagnosis and pre-post operative treatment (including pre-operative examinations) for your ear with your doctor (ENT Specialist in your home country) before coming  to Japan.

Example Plan

Saturday or Sunday:

Come to Osaka and check-in to your accommodation. We can recommend a good guesthouse facing a big shopping mall. You can go shopping and hang out before the operation. Preoperative examinations for general anesthesia should be done in your hometown before coming to Japan. ( a blood test, urine test, electrocardiogram, respiratory function test, chest X-ray and photo of the ear canal.)


Admit yourself to Oiki Ear and Nose clinic at 9:00.

Undergo surgery under general anesthesia in the morning.

Preoperative examinations (CT scan of the ear and hearing test) may be performed before the operation.

You can take a rest and stay in a private room after the operation.


Discharge from the hospital. We recommend staying for several days after the operation for postoperative follow up and treatment, especially surfers from other counties.


Remove all gauze from the ear canal.

Total cost of surfer’s ear operation is about JPY550000 (aboutUS$5000: depends on current rate) for both ears.

If you have Japanese national health insurance the total cost is less than 1/3 of the above.
