Hearing Loss - Early Diagnosis and Treatment

Approximately 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss.

Hearing loss is one of the most common health issues in adults. Just like reading glasses help our eyes see, hearing aids help us to hear a conversation.

Untreated hearing loss can lead to irritability, anger, fatigue, stress, avoidance or withdrawal from social situations, impaired memory function, and reduced job performance.

Signs of Hearing Loss

If you or a loved one have noticed two or more of the following signs, schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists for a diagnostic hearing test.

These are the most common signs of hearing loss:

  • Difficulty understanding what people are saying in noisy environments
  • Notice that people seem to "mumble"
  • Difficulty hearing or understanding friends or family when they are facing away from you
  • Difficulty following conversations that involve more than two people
  • Family members tell you that the T.V. volume is too high
  • Withdrawing from social activities
  • Smiling or nodding during conversations or answering questions incorrectly on a regular basis
  • Ringing, buzzing or whooshing noises in your ears
  • Asking people to repeat themselves or repeat themselves

Hearing Tests

The purpose of a test for hearing loss is to determine not only if you have a hearing loss, but how mild or severe it is. A thorough hearing test can also help define the type of hearing loss you have: conductive, sensorineural, or mixed and whether it will respond best to medical treatment, hearing aids, bone-anchored hearing systems, or cochlear implants.

What is a cochlear implant?

A cochlear implant is a medical device that can partially restore hearing. A cochlear implant works by directly stimulating the auditory nerve to deliver a sense of sound.

Cochlear implants work by processing sound signals and transmitting them to a receiver that is implanted behind the ear. The receiver will then transfer the signals to electrodes that are implanted in the inner ear. These signals stimulate the auditory nerve, which directs the signals to the brain. The brain will translate the signals as sounds to help you hear.

Speech Delay

Concerns about your child's speech and language development? A speech-language pathologist should be consulted for a full evaluation. This involves a series of tests that will be used to assess your child’s receptive language and expressive language skills, sound development, speech clarity and oral-motor skills. Speech therapy may be recommended to help your child develop the skills necessary for effective communication.
