Stapedectomy is a type of surgery, which is performed in the middle ear. There are small bones which are extremely important when it comes to reflecting sound in the ear. These are malleus, incus and stapes. If stapes is damaged or harmed in some way, then Stapedectomy is performed to set everything right. Stapes can be damaged primarily due to two diseases. These include Otosclerosis and the other one is congenital malformation.
Ostosclerosis is a disease that is hereditary. It is the growth of an extra bone on and around the Stapes.
Stapedectomy is very different from Stapedectomy. The former is preferred over the latter and has a higher success rate as well.
This is a very safe surgery, but it’s highly dependent on the doctor’s skill. It helps in improving hearing loss and is better than most other surgeries.
