A short blurb in the December 2016 Silverstein Institute email newsletter: Hyperacusis Research Study Dr. Silverstein recently presented the results of 14 patients who had minimally invasive surgery for Hyperacusis (noise sensitivity) at the Glasscock National Meeting in Nashville. Eleven of the patients had a reduction in Hyperacusis symptoms. Two of the patients had exquisitely sensitive hearing that was not helped. A multi-center study is being organized to evaluate round and oval window reinforcement as a treatment for severe Hyperacusis.
