What is Stapedectomy?

Stapedectomy is the best and safest surgical intervention in which the damaged stapes bone is replaced with a micro prosthesis. This surgery improves your hearing loss which is caused as a result of otosclerosis and damaged or congenital malformation of the stapes. Our ENT doctors at Pristyn Care, Bangalore are well trained and experienced in performing several successful stapedectomy surgeries. To know more details about stapedectomy, book an appointment with our ENT doctors.

What is Otosclerosis?

Otosclerosis is an inherited disorder that causes fixation or immobility of stapes bone. Due to this, sound waves can’t be amplified and so the patient can suffer from conductive hearing loss, ringing in the ears, etc. Usually, either otosclerosis or fracture of stapes can cause the stapes to be fixed in a position rather than being normally mobile.

    Our ENT specialists will primarily rule out the other diseases, disorders, medical conditions, and/or health problems that can cause the same symptoms as otosclerosis and malformed or abnormal stapes bone. They use the advanced and latest diagnostic tests like audiogram [measure hearing sensitivity] and tympanogram [middle-ear sound conduction] to confirm the otosclerosis. Along with these, imaging tests such as a CT scan are also used to diagnose otosclerosis.

    At Pristyn Care, Bangalore, ENT use a painless and quick diagnostic examination of the ear through a tympanometer. With the help of a tympanometer [a small device used to look at the movement of the bones within the ear], ENT doctors can find out the slow movement of the stapes bone due to either otosclerosis or congenital defect.


    In order to treat hearing loss as a result of otosclerosis and/or immobility of stapes, ENT doctors at Pristyn Care, Bangalore recommend the best and safest stapedectomy at an affordable price.

    Before undergoing stapedectomy, you will be sedated with general anesthesia and once you fall asleep, all your vital signs like blood pressure, heartbeat, respiratory rate, and blood oxygen levels are monitored throughout the surgery. A microscope is used to look into the ear and then an incision is made in the ear canal to lift the eardrum from the middle ear. Now, the three bones that are in the ear are evaluated and checked by our ENT doctors. After confirming that the stape bone is not able to vibrate, ENT surgeon can remove a part or all of the stapes. However, in a few cases, a small drill or laser is used. Now, the damaged or immobile stapes is replaced with artificial stapes and so improve the hearing loss over a period. Once the surgery is done, incisions made are stitched together and a package is placed in the ear.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is stapedectomy in Bangalore covered under insurance?

    Yes, most insurance providers cover stapedectomy surgery as it is necessary for the treatment of hearing loss due to stapes damage or disorder. If you are unsure about the ENT surgeries covered in your insurance policy, you should consult your insurance provider.

    How is a stapedectomy performed?

    A stapedectomy is performed under either general or local anesthesia and is not painful at all. The surgeon creates an incision to move the eardrum out of the way and access the damaged/degenerated stapes bone. The stapes is then disconnected from the incus bone, removed, and replaced with a prosthetic made of either metal or plastic. The incision is closed and the patient is sent to the recovery ward. The entire procedure takes about 90-120 minutes, and patients are usually discharged on the same day within a few hours of the surgery.

    Which conditions are treated through a stapedectomy?

    Stapedectomy is one of the safest and most effective treatments for otosclerosis, a degenerative condition that ossifies the stapes bone, hardening it and leading to hearing loss.

    What are the different kinds of stapedectomy implants?

    A stapedectomy implant can be made of a variety of materials such as Teflon memory effect, platinum and gold band, titanium-gold clip, or nickel-titanium alloy. Generally, the type of implant for the surgery is based on the surgeon’s experience and expertise with a specific type of prostheses, the surgical technique being used, the patient’s budget and preference, etc.

    What kind of surgery is provided at Pristyn Care for stapedectomy in Bangalore?

    How long does it take to hear after a stapedectomy?

    Normally, for most patients, faint hearing comes back within 1 week of the surgery, but it may take 2-4 weeks for there to be a noticeable improvement in their hearing. In 90% of the cases, this improved hearing function is permanent.

    How many days will I have to skip work after a stapedectomy?

    Stapedectomy is usually performed in outpatient surgery, i.e., there is no hospitalization required and most patients can rejoin work within 2-4 days of the procedure. You may have to wait a little longer if your work is physically straining.

    When does a stapedectomy become necessary?

    A stapedectomy is usually performed for otosclerosis, a genetic condition that leads to the hardening and fusing of the stapes bone. Additionally, it is also considered for patients who have a congenital stapes abnormality or a fracture of the stapes from a traumatic incident.

    What can I expect during the recovery period after a stapedectomy?

    Usually, the surgery is performed under local anesthesia to reduce the chances of anesthesia-related risks, and patients are discharged on the same day once the surgeon is sure there are no postoperative complications. Once you are discharged, it may take about 4-6 weeks for you to regain your hearing. You can improve your recovery after stapedectomy by following the given tips:

    • If you have any blood or discharge from your ear, you can place cotton balls there to absorb it. You should also take the antibiotics and painkillers as prescribed by your doctor to ensure there is no infection. If needed, you can take antibiotic drops for your ear.
    • Keep the operated ear dry. While showering or taking bath, wrap it using cotton balls and vaseline. Avoid swimming and submerging your ear under water during the recovery period as well.
    • Avoid flying until your ear has healed. Make sure to get approval from your ENT doctor before going on a plane as the change in air pressure can dislodge the implant if it hasn’t healed sufficiently yet.
    • Do not use earbuds, earplugs, earphones, etc. till your ear is completely healed.
    • Avoid blowing your nose for a few days after the surgery as it can strain the surgical site. Do not lift heavy weights or perform stressful exercises.

    What are the risks of stapedectomy surgery?

    While stapedectomy is usually safe, in rare cases, it can be associated with complications such as:

    • Damage or perforation of the eardrum
    • Incomplete or partial dislocation and depression of stapes footplate
    • Dizziness and nausea
    • Injury to the facial nerve leading to facial paralysis
    • Increased risk of ear infection
    • Temporary distortion of the sense of taste (Dysgeusia or Parageusia)
    • Failure of prosthesis/incus necrosis
    • Loss of hearing regarding high-frequency sounds

    At Pristyn Care, we have expert doctors working in advanced treatment facilities to ensure there are no complications, and if there are any complications, they can be managed in due time. Book an appointment for advanced stapedectomy surgery in Bangalore today.
