Disease Diagnosis & Treatment
Hearing loss has many causes. For some, it can be caused by aging, excessive noise exposure or family history and can be successfully treated by the use of hearing aids or other amplification devices. For others, the loss may be caused by a disease or infection and can be treated medically by an Ear Nose and Throat physician. A comprehensive hearing test is necessary to identify whether the hearing loss can be treated with hearing aids or if a consultation with an Ear Nose and Throat physician is necessary.
