What you Need to Know about 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 stapes fuses with surrounding bone tissue, losing the flexibility it needs to transmit sound waves from your middle ear to your inner ear.
Though Stapes surgery is the only known treatment to take care of your hearing loss as well as prevent the progression of your disease, every Stapes surgery carries a rael risk of complete loss of hearing in the operated ear. This must be clearly discussed during treatment planning.
A Hearing aid is another option for treating Otosclerosis.

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.
