Reconstruction of the Ossicular Chain
Treated by Our Manhattan Ear Surgeon
A separation of the bones in the middle ear, known as ossicular chain dislocation, can be caused by a number of conditions, including congenital ear malformation, chronic ear infections, a tumor behind the eardrum known as cholesteatoma, and even a skull fracture. When the bones in the middle ear are separated in this manner, the result is a conductive hearing loss. The sound then cannot travel through the ear properly. Surgery can often repair this disconnection, restoring hearing to the ear.
Our team are experts at ossicular chain reconstruction because we:

Ossicular reconstruction/hearing rstoration surgery may be a good solution for your hearing loss. This outpatient surgery usually takes 60 minutes. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, as there are many forms of ossicular damage. We analyze each case individually to identify the best method for reconstruction.
