Hearing Loss Solutions

Types of conductive hearing loss can be congenital (since birth) such as absence of ear canal or failure of the ear canal to open, another malformation, or dysfunction of the middle ear structures. These can be surgically corrected.

Alternatively, they may be improved by amplification with a bone conduction hearing aid, a surgically implanted device, or a conventional hearing aid, depending on the status of the nerves. Other causes of conductive hearing loss are infection, tumors, middle ear fluid, foreign body, and trauma. Infections are usually treated with antibiotic or antifungal medications. Chronic ear infections, chronic middle fluid, and tumors usually require surgery (as for pressure equalizing tubes).

Irreversible sensorineural hearing loss, the most common form, can be managed with hearing aids. We offer you all the steps throughout this process. When you decide to purchase a hearing aid here, we will give you all the necessary counseling and evaluation—provide a testing/trial period, help you schedule your consultation and general maintenance appointments, and with your purchase, our office will supply the hearing aid batteries. If hearing aids are not enough, this type of hearing loss can be surgically treated using cochlear implants.
