Stapedectomy is a surgical procedure in which the innermost bone (stapes) of the three bones (the stapes, the incus, and the malleus) of the middle ear is removed, and replaced with a prosthesis. Performed to improve the movement of sound to the inner ear, stapedectomy treats progressive hearing loss caused by otosclerosis, a condition in which spongy bone hardens around the base of the stapes.
Tympanoplasty is the surgical procedure which restores and/or retains hearing. During the tympanoplasty, the surgeon will graft the tympanic membrane (eardrum) and reconstruct the middle ear. A prosthetic device may need to be implanted to replace the ossicles (middle ear bones) that have been damaged by infection.
An ossiculoplasty is surgery to repair, reconstruct and improve the movement of the tiny bones of hearing in the middle ear. Some bones become damaged or less mobile due to infection or disease such as long-standing middle ear infection (otitis media), or trauma such as a head injury.
