Lippy has just written in the April Journal of Otology and Neurotology a “Letter to the Editor” documenting the improvement for memory loss following stapedectomy surgery for otosclerosis. The paper entitled – “The Long Prosthesis Syndrome” focuses on two recent cases that were referred to Dr. Lippy, following stapedectomy surgery for otosclerosis.

Warren, OH (PRWEB) April 13, 2010 -- Dr. William H. Lippy has just written in the April Journal of Otology and Neurotology a "Letter to the Editor" documenting the improvement for memory loss following stapedectomy surgery for otosclerosis.

The paper entitled – “The Long Prosthesis Syndrome” focuses on two recent cases that were referred to Dr. Lippy, following stapedectomy surgery for otosclerosis. Both patients had suffered further hearing losses, severe disequilibrium, lack of concentration and significant memory loss.

Dr. Lippy, a world famous otologist from Warren, Ohio performed revision surgery and replaced the patient’s prosthesis with a shorter one. The results were immediate and very dramatic.

Before Dr. Lippy performed the revision surgery, both patients were unsteady in walking without assistance, could not concentrate and could not even remember simple phone numbers. In both cases the morning after surgery, the patients awakened without disequilibrium, were able to concentrate and had a total return of their memories.

The editor of the medical journal, Otology and Neurotology decided to publish Dr. Lippy’s paper as a Letter to the Editor in the April edition because of the urgency in disseminating the information. It can take sometimes up to 18 months for papers like Dr. Lippy’s to be published by medical journals.

“I am very appreciative to the Editors of the Journal for recognizing the importance of this information and getting it out so quickly to the medical community,” said Dr. Lippy.”

In addition Dr. Lippy noted that, “in 40 years I had seen this syndrome only on 4 previous occasions, and seeing two within a short period of time prompted me to write this letter to the editor. There must be numerous post operative stapedectomy patients out there with the same symptoms.”

A complete copy of the article can be found on Dr. Lippy’s website along with an interview of the patient Dr. Lippy operated. Please visit: http://www.TheLongProsthesisSyndrome.com

Dr. William Lippy is founder of the Lippy Group for Ear, Nose & Throat in Warren, Ohio. He is an internationally recognized expert in stapedectomy surgery for treatment of deafness, and is one of only a handful of surgeons in the world who has performed thousands of stapedectomies.
