At the present time, there are more ongoing research studies on tinnitus than at any previous time in history. These investigations will inevitably lead to a better understanding of this condition as well as provide new treatment possibilities and relief.
- Electrical suppression techniques hold substantial promise for the relief of tinnitus. During this procedure, electrical current is delivered to the middle ear via special electrodes. More study is needed to determine the long-term safety and effectiveness of this procedure for the treatment of tinnitus.
- Future surgical procedures may also provide options for treatment or even a cure for tinnitus.
