What is Stapedectomy?
Stapedectomy is the surgical procedure that involves the removal of all the damaged stapes bone to replace them with a micro prosthesis. This surgery helps in improving the hearing loss caused by otosclerosis and a congenital malformation of the stapes. Any of these two conditions can lead the stapes to be fixed in a position rather than being normally mobile. As a result of fixed stapes, one can suffer from hearing loss, ringing in the ears, and dizziness.
Stapedectomy is the safest and best surgical procedure to treat and prevent hearing loss due to otosclerosis and abnormal stapes bone. ENT doctors at Pristyn Care, Delhi are highly trained and experts in performing stapedectomy with minimal risks.
What is Otosclerosis?
Otosclerosis is an inherited disorder where an individual can suffer from conductive hearing loss as a result of immobility or fixation of stapes bone [one of the three small bones that are connected to the eardrum to help amplify the sound waves]. It can be caused when the stapes bone in the middle ear becomes stuck in place and unable to vibrate. Due to this, sound waves are not able to be amplified and the sound couldn’t travel through the ear which leads to conductive hearing loss.
