Is tympanoplasty a major surgery?

Tympanoplasty is typically an outpatient surgery that takes between two and three hours. It is usually performed in a hospital rather than your doctor’s office and requires the patient to go under general anesthesia. Recovery from general anesthesia can take several hours, so you may need to stay in the hospital overnight.
