Stapedectomy is the surgical procedure to remove all or a part of the original stapes bone to treat hearing loss. People suffering from hearing loss caused due to otosclerosis are prescribed to undergo a Stapedectomy. It happens when the bone in the ear keeps growing keeping the stapes from moving normally.

A patient will need a stapedectomy if he has otosclerosis. It is diagnosed by healthcare providers who specialize in hearing or an ENT specialist. The doctor may conduct hearing tests that measure hearing sensitivity and middle-ear sound conduction. Sometimes, imaging tests such as a CT scan are also used to diagnose otosclerosis.
Hearing aids and antibiotics may also patients suffering from conductive deafness if they want to avoid the surgical procedure. However, they are a temporary solution. For a better and long-term cure, a surgeon can remove the unusual growth on bone and insert a tiny implant. For cases where the condition is severe, the entire stapes bone is taken out and replaced with a small prosthesis. This procedure is called Stapedectomy.

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.
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.
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.
