First Stapedectomy Successful Surgery
19 July 2017
King Fahd Hospital – Jeddah specialists have successfully conducted the first stapedectomy. Done laparoscopically, it is one of the most complicated ear surgeries, where a microscope was used before. The difficulty lies in operating with one hand while the other holds the laparoscope, without any incision.
Using laparoscope in such surgeries features more details and secures better results. In fact, King Fahd Hospital takes the lead in such surgeries, as well as related workshops and training courses.
