This procedure involves the distinct sectioning of the nerve of balance near the point where it connects with the brain.This surgery ensures that the hearing portion of the nerve is preserved.
Up to 95 percent of vestibular neurectomies cure vertigo. This intracranial (brain) operation is done by an ear surgeon and neurosurgeon. Recovery is similar to that of a labyrinthectomy, with close post-operative monitoring, which requires a hospital stay of up to four days.
This procedure is offered to those under age 60 who are in good health as the best option to cure vertigo from Meniere’s and preserve hearing.
