Stapedectomy

How do I know if I need stapedectomy?

The inner and middle ear can be affected by a bone disease known as osteoclerosis. In this situation, an abnormal amount of bone growth occurs around the stapes bone and causes you to suffer with hearing loss. With I Need A Surgery, you can schedule your procedure through an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.

Slowly losing your hearing may be a symptom of otosclerosis. Once the stapes become more fixed, you will begin to lose your hearing quicker. Loss of balance, dizziness and tinnitus are other signs of the condition.

How is the stapedectomy procedure performed?

When you suffer with conductive hearing loss, a stapedectomy surgery can help to remove any abnormal bone growth from your ear. Prosthetic stapes are implanted into your ear. Since they vibrate in the same manner as your original bone, you will be able to hear sound again. While it can restore your hearing, it can’t treat the tinnitus or dizziness caused by otosclerosis.

What is recovery like after a stapedectomy?

After the procedure, you are normally able to leave the hospital that same day. A cotton packing will be put in your ear. For about 5-7 days after the procedure, you will want to keep packing the ear. At times, you might end up with a bandage over the ear to keep it safe.

Eardrops are sometimes given following the surgery. Remove the packing gently and place the drops into your ear. Only put the packing back in your ear, nothing else.

Don’t let water get into the ear until you are given the okay. Avoid swimming. Always use a shower cap. Don’t blow your nose or pop your ears. If you have to sneeze, make sure your mouth stays open to avoid pressure on the eardrum.

Refrain from going to crowded places where someone might be ill. Catching a cold will only increase your chances of getting an infection.

How much does a stapedectomy cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $5,850, versus having to pay $58,500 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
