In brief: Otosclerosis

Besides doing nothing since it is not a life threatening condition, treatment is either with a hearing aid or with surgery called a stapedectomy.
This is done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthetic and takes about 30 minutes, and is highly successful in improving hearing.
