What treatment is available?

Because of their expertise in this area, the Consultants at OneWelbeck are able to offer the full range of treatments to help patients.

Around 80% of patients respond to medical treatment with a combination of various drugs.

For those that do not respond to such conservative measures the next step is to use corticosteroid injections through the ear drum under local anaesthetic to calm the active inner ear down.

If this fails (usually a course of up to three injections) then surgery can be considered. This can either be hearing preserving surgery, when the hearing is still useful such as endolymphatic sac decompression or vestibular neurectomy, or hearing destructive surgery when the disease itself has caused severe hearing loss (labyrinthectomy).

All these options are discussed in terms of benefit and risks so as to individualise the management of this disabling condition.
