Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is important to remember that all surgeons are obligated to tell you all the potential risks that can occur as a result of a procedure.
This does not mean that they have a high chance of occurring.
Ossiculoplasty is the surgical procedure where there is repair or reconstruction of bones in the ear. This may be the procedure he referred to. Loss of hearing occurs in less than 1 out of 100 patients so the risk is minimal.
You need to consider how your present hearing loss
is affecting you and the prognosis if it continues untreated.If the hearing loss is likely to progress if untreated then it may be best to have the surgery done.
Then consider any potential benefits and risks of the procedure for you.
I hope this helps
