Stapendectomy

I had a stapendectomy about six years ago - the results were OK - but not 
great.
My ENT now suggest a stapedotomy on my other ear - As I understand it He 
drills a .7mm hole in the oval window and put in a .6mm piston - this 
piston is connected to the ear drum (via a con-rod??). 
Does anybody know anything more about a ‘stapedotmy’?
