What is stapedectomy?

stapedectomy treatment

Stapedectomy or stapes surgery is performed to remove the infected stapes bone in the middle ear. The Stapes bone sends sound waves from the external ear to the internal ear. Infection of the stapes bone will obstruct its function and create hearing loss. Doctors remove the hardened or infected stapes bone to restore hearing capacity.

They effectively trap any bacteria or viruses that enter our body from the food we eat and the air we inhale through the nose. According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, Tonsils are the ‘first line of defense as part of the immune system.’

Symptoms of otosclerosis are:

  • Hard hearing
  • Dizziness
  • Tinnitus
  • Vertigo
  • Gradual/ progressive hearing loss
  • Ear discharge (seen in only a few)

Stapedectomy surgery is performed to remove complications like

  • Cure ear discharge
  • Treat otosclerosis
  • Hard hearing or hearing problem
  • Air bone gap in the middle ear
  • Infected / outgrowth of the stapes bone
  • Conductive hearing loss

Stapedectomy will remove the infected bone or replace the stapes bone with an implant which functions like the stapes bone. The Remained stapes bone or the implant transfers the sound waves to the inner ear and provides normal hearing.

Advanced treatment methods are available to perform stapedectomy. Depending on the infected stapes bone, doctors select the best method to treat you. Methods like endoscopy stapedectomy, laser assisted stapedectomy or drilling methods are available to treat stapedectomy. The result of each method is the same, but the procedure varies from one another.
