​A successful study was recently completed evaluating a minimally invasive surgery reinforcement of the round and oval window to reduce the symptoms of severe Hyperacusis or noise intolerance. The procedure has been successful in 80% of cases. Three publications have been produced describing the results of the study.

Hear From Our Patients

“For so long I couldn’t do anything as simple as going out. Children playing, music, the sound of waves at the beach, the sound of my own voice — things that are supposed to make me happy made me flinch.
