The objective for the treatment of a vertiginous disease is to eliminate the underlying pathology either with drugs or maneuvers. In vertiginous diseases, surgery is seldom performed, either to eliminate the underlying pathologic event or to improve stability of the incoming vestibular signals. Successful treatment of the underlying disease is not always feasible. Various surgical approaches have been used to treat a variety of vertiginous diseases.
