I havr: Many years ago i used to perform stapedectomies. I don't any longer because i don't see enough patients who are operative candidates to keep my skills sharp. I referred them to otologists now who perform the procedure much more frequently than i ever did. Remember, the more experience the surgeon has in performing surgery, the better the outcome.
