What you Need to Know about Stapes Surgery

A stapedectomy is surgery to treat hearing loss caused by otosclerosis. This condition affects your hearing by damaging your stape, a tiny U-shaped bone in your middle ear. Your stape helps you hear by sending sound waves from your middle ear to your inner ear. In a stapedectomy, healthcare providers replace your damaged stape with an artificial device.

Why I need Stapes Surgery

You may need a stapedectomy if you have hearing loss caused by otosclerosis (oh-tuh-skli-roh-sis). This condition happens when your stape fuses with surrounding bone tissue, losing the flexibility it needs to transmit sound waves from your middle ear to your inner ear.

You may have some mild pain or discomfort after your surgery. Ask your healthcare provider about over-the-counter pain medications you can take to ease your post-surgery symptoms.

Are there complications associated with treatment?

Like any surgical procedure, a stapedectomy carries the risk of complications. While the procedure helps about 80% to 90% of people with otosclerosis, it may not be successful in some cases. In rare instances, your hearing may even be worse after surgery. Some other potential complications include:

  • Feeling dizzy immediately after your surgery and for the next few days.
  • Losing your sense of taste on the side of your tongue. This symptom typically goes away after a few months.
  • Developing tinnitus, or ringing in your ear.
  • Your hearing may not improve or it may get worse after surgery. In some cases, your healthcare provider may recommend doing additional surgery. They may also recommend using hearing aids.
