My adult son has had a cholesteatoma for some time and has been putting off its removal. He is getting progressively more deaf and now it is hurting him like crazy. He is a independent tile setter with no insurance and he is hell bent on finding a doctor who will trade services. I told him this is a pretty unlikely scenario to pull off. Can anyone refer me to a good Minnesota surgeon for this?

If it is bothering him that much it needs to be done before he either goes deaf permanently or worse the thing invade his facial nerve or even worse his brain.
get one that does these regularly. if he wants to trade services he'll have to put that up front with the doc.
I just had my right ear cholesteatoma removed and with that a new eardrum and prosthetic hearing bone.
only 7 days ago. the surgery is a necessity and the only option. most hospitals offer 50% off for the uninsured so he needs to have that conversation with a hospital. Hospital's also use a lot of tile so he might be able to swing a deal there also.
this is normally  same day surgery. no overnights required.
