48 million people in America suffer from hearing loss. Since 2000, the number of Americans with hearing loss has doubled. It remains one of the top health concerns reported by returning military service members and veterans. Other causes of hearing loss include: aging, trauma, constant exposure to loud noise, ototoxic medications, genetic factors, and certain infections.
Another common hearing problem, tinnitus, occurs when you experience persistent ringing or “buzzing” in your ears. This condition affects nearly 25 million adults in the United States per year.

Flagstaff Surgical Associates works with the hospital and two local surgery centers. We will schedule at the facility that best fits your surgery needs is contracted with your insurance carrier.
It is important to have an empty stomach before surgery to minimize the chance of vomiting during or after surgery to avoid complications. You will generally be instructed not to eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery. This is extremely important and your surgery will be cancelled if these instructions are not followed.
On average, surgery takes 7 to 10 days to schedule. Insurance often requires precertification and/or authorization. There is usually preoperatively testing that the patient must have and patient, surgeon and surgery facility schedules need to be coordinated. We know that waiting for your surgery is not easy but we will do our best to get your surgery scheduled as soon as possible.
It is normal for your incision to appear discolored or slightly swollen. Call our office if you are having excessive pain, increased swelling or drainage or if you just have questions or concerns.
If you are not given a follow up time when you are discharged after surgery, please call our office to schedule an appointment as soon as possible after returning home. Typically, the postoperative appointment should be 7 to 10 days after surgery unless your doctor tells you something different.
We usually receive pathology results in 3 to 5 working days. If special stains are required or specimens are sent to outside facilities, the results may take up to 2 weeks longer. We will do our best to have the results to you as soon as possible
