Audiology is the area of medicine that is concerned with hearing. Our audiologists are trained to help patients who are experiencing hearing loss by determining the cause of their symptoms and helping find a solution that works well for their needs and lifestyle.
Hearing can play an essential role in your everyday experience. From not being able to hear friends and family speak to not understanding your classmates or co-workers, hearing loss can impact many areas of your life. Unfortunately, hearing loss is not uncommon and can often occur with age or due to injury or certain medical conditions. Our staff can help patients experiencing any degree of hearing loss and connect them to treatment that can help improve their hearing.
- Hearing testing
- Hearing aids
- Programming and maintenance for hearing aids
- Surgery to repair hearing
Our audiology services start with hearing testing and include a range of care options for hearing loss treatment. We offer surgeries to repair hearing, hearing devices, and maintenance services.
A hearing test is the first step in finding a hearing loss treatment. It helps your providers determine the course of your treatment and ensure they are tackling the root cause of your symptoms. We recommend a hearing test as early as possible when signs of hearing loss begin to appear. The earlier hearing loss is detected, the more treatment options are available.
Hearing aids are the most popular form of hearing loss treatment. While they were once seen as bulky, difficult to use devices, they are now more user-friendly and discreet. Hearing aids can be worn inside or around the ears to amplify the sounds around you. Modern hearing aids can transition between different sound environments to provide seamless hearing improvement. Our offices provide a wide selection of hearing aids and work to help you select the best choice.
Programming and Maintenance for Hearing Aids
Hearing aids require a specialist to help you program and fine-tune your settings. Whether you just received your hearing aids or are looking to make adjustments, our specialist can help. They will work with you to ensure the settings are right for you and help you maintain your device to maximize its lifespan. We can also help patients who require help repairing or cleaning their hearing aids.
Surgery of the Ear
Some patients may experience hearing loss due to structural issues or malformation of the inner or outer ear. When this occurs, surgery can be used to help correct this and restore hearing. Patients who are candidates for this procedure are usually those who have had these problems present since birth or as the result of an injury to the ears. Our surgeons can repair the bones or other areas of the ear using advanced techniques.
