EXPERTISE

NYOG proudly announces the publication of a textbook by Dr. Neil Sperling.
Otosclerosis: Diagnosis, Evaluation, Pathology, Surgical Techniques, and Outcomes
by Chris de Souza, Marcos V. Goycoolea, Neil M. Sperling

Excerpts from Dr. Conrad Fischer’s book “ Routine Miracles”:(Kaplan Publishing, 2009)

“If you want a physician of intensely high skill who can operate through a keyhole slit a few millimeters across and replace the minute ossicles of the ear with titanium parts, then you go see Dr Sperling.” p. 132

In the words of the author Dr. Conrad Fischer: “His patients call Dr. Sperling a miracle worker. I interviewed a dozen of them, and far more than one, even the calmest among them, say the same thing in the same words.” p. 132

With respect to otosclerosis surgery, one patient is quoted in the book as follows: “…in an hour, fifteen years of misery were stopped. I came off the table, and my life was restored back to me. It was instantaneous. I went into the hospital cut off and separate….I left the hospital on the same day happy. I felt like I rejoined the world, but I guess it is better to say that world rejoined me.” p.137

“… I gave away my hearing aids.” p. 137

Another patient who underwent hearing restoration surgery for congenital hearing loss surgery is quoted: “When I came off the table, I could hear everything. It is like living your whole life thinking there was only one dimension, then you find out all of a sudden there are three dimensions that everyone knew about but you did not. In an instant, my entire concept of normal changed.” p.142
