Stapes Surgery


When a disease called otosclerosis strikes the middle ear, the stapes – which is the smallest bone of the ear and also of our body – goes static, stops vibrating and the sound conduction part of hearing mechanism is disturbed leading to hearing loss. Stapes surgery (or stapedectomy) is a microsurgery that involves construction of an alternative sound conduction mechanism to bypass the fixed stapes to restore hearing. This is an hour-long surgery and is usually performed under general anaesthesia, though some surgeons may prefer to operate with local anaesthesia.

Conditions treated


  • Hearing loss due to otosclerosis

Why this surgery?


  • Stapes surgery is an elective procedure (not a life-saving surgery) that one can choose to have or not have. However, if opted, it will improve the quality of life by freeing one’s dependence on cumbersome hearing aids.

Benefits


Though, a stapes surgery will not stop progression of otosclerosis but it can improve a person’s hearing a great deal by constructing an alternative sound conducting mechanism.
