If your child has lots of ear infections, chances are your pediatrician has mentioned ear tubes as a possible solution.

You can find out all about ear tubes surgery Friday via a live surgery on Twitter.

More than 80 percent of children will have an ear infection before the age of 3.

If children are having recurrent ear infections or have fluid behind the ear drum that won’t go away, a doctor may recommend ear tubes.
