Has anybody had the surgery with either of these doctors? I am aware that Dr. Silverstein is retired. His fellow, Doctor Nayak, is now doing the procedure. It appears that they have done about 80 of these and have a 70-80% success rate.

I cannot do noise therapy because I cannot put any devices (including ear plugs and noise protective headphones) on my ears-it causes severe pain. I tried the hearing aids that stream the pink noise and it made me much worse. I, like everybody else in this forum, am desperate for relief. 

Please reply if you have had the surgery with either of these surgeons (or another surgeon). The procedure is called " “Round and Oval window Reinforcement."

My main questions are:
-Did your insurance cover it?
-Did you fly afterward and if so, did it hurt your ears?
-How long did it take for you to be able to tolerate noise again?

And any other info. would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hi Tami,

If you are on Facebook, there is a group called Hyperacusis Surgery Success Talk. There is a lot of information there from people who have had the surgery.

Hi Pamela,
  Yes, I just joined that group 2 days ago and it is wonderful! The people in the group are very informative and supportive. Plus, many of them have had the surgery and have improvement with their hyperacusis. I truly appreciate you taking the time to reply.

tami be curful,no really data on 70 it meenes that?u have no gurenty that u wont have hl couse of it, i was dealing with 3 outonirologs in my country...i was about to do the operation ,and stop it,couse of the bad opinion about hl..most of them dont anderstand the mrchnisem and how to deal with pain hyperacusis but thay anderstand in hl..this is the real sorrow of the matter, they do not understand hyperacosis but understand a conduction hearing loss that will result from obstruction of the oval windows which is unfortunately true .. .they dont even give us tests to your medical state in my country.
.look we need to get chat with someone like prof salvi..check on ytube .. the mechanices of the operation is to reduce all what u hear!but not in the same intensity ,,couse its is extrenly hard to dill in high f inc10 db more thst u had before the operatin..so what u got from it?
the pain hylrracusis must to be made by the ihc and oh cells at conection that called synapes of the nervefiver to the hearing center..ee have lroblem wuth tbe nirunes that go crazy ob the nerve fiver...or in the braimn hearing ceters..
like that plugs cant mask or reduce all l the
type of noises..and u have pain even with them...that is also be after the operation that u wull pay on.any ent knew to do this surgry..it not a unike one.they do it when thay repare middle ear isueis and need to block the oval windowsbythe way for sone time in the ooaration if those surgry.
