      Seriously, look into this. This requires that they surgically remove your eardrum, drill a hole in your cochlea with a laser, and then inject your cochlea with viral vectors containing ATOH1.

      I can't see how removing the eardrum would be a good thing.

      Ah yeah, you're right. In addition, it seems mainly to be for severe to profound hearing loss. Means however this is the deafness cure if it works. And if it does, it will probably so important that they'll find a better way for administration... who knows?

      White noise generators, they have removed hyperacusis for some.

      It's called the malleus.
      It's possible to do an incision and move the ear drum out of the way and then reattach it after you've done what you wanted to do behind it.
      I've had it done 3 years ago. My daughter had it done 3 months ago.
      I've also had a hole drilled in my cochlea.
      It's not a fun procedure.
