Surgery for BPPV

VEDA member asks, "Has anyone tried the surgery or know anyone who has? Has anyone been to the House Clinic in Los Angeles....is the surgery dangerous and do you end up deaf in one ear?"

I was told of the surgery by a surgeon for BPPV and there is a hearing loss risk. I knew of someone who had it for BPPV and still gets vertigo. My internist and PT says do not do the surgery. I get BPPV a couple or more times a year and do the Epley procedures and see a PT to help really clear the ears.
