Is there any treatment for tympanosclerosis other than surgery?


Is there any treatment for Tympanosclerosis other than surgery? Is there any new and recent techniques for Tympanoplasty (like laser or other) that are more practical and easier? What about success rates and possibilities of hearing loss restoration? And what about potential approximate costs for such surgery?
Thank you in advance.


Tympanosclerosis is an invasive form of scar tissue that follows infection(s) in the ear.  At times it can cause significant hearing loss.  Although not universal, many cases can be repaired surgically and hearing restored using modern Tympanoplasty techniques possibly with the use of a laser.

If you would like further evaluation and consideration of your case, please come in for an evaluation.
Best of luck!
