About Surgical Hearing Procedures

Conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss are the main two types of hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss results from problems in the middle and outer ear.  This is often surgically corrected.

One of the most common types of surgical procedures for hearing is for the treatment of otosclerosis, an abnormal growth of bone on or around the “stirrup bone” of the middle ear.

Types Of Ear Surgeries

  • Mastoidectomy
  • Tympanoplasty
  • Ossicul0plasty

Mastoidectomy

Mastoidectomy is a surgery to remove an infected part of the ear’s mastoid bone caused by an ear infection such as mastoiditis or chronic otitis, inflammatory disease of the middle ear or cholesteatomas.

Tympanoplasty

Tympanoplasty is surgery to repair the tympanic membrane, the eardrum, when it has been perforated or damaged. There are several types of tympanoplasty, so a patient’s procedure will be determined by their specific damage.

Ossiculoplasty

This is surgery to repair the three tiny bones located in the middle ear which are called ossicles. The goal of this surgery is to improve hearing in situations where the ossicles are partially or fully immobile.
