[Protein-analysis] Question about Hypothetical Thermal Injury of the Inner Ear

Lets say a way was developed so that thermally-denatured proteins would
not coagulate, that thermal burns would not cause inflammatory
reactions, that the heat [that would cause protein denaturation] could
be specificaly targeted to only a certain region on the body. Lets also
say that this heat that entered the proteins did not spread to
non-protein entities.

What symptoms would occur if the proteins in the inner hair cells of
the left cochlea were thermally-denatured w/out directly affecting any
cells other than the inner hair cells themselves?

[assuming this was possible]

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
