Hearing loss is a problem shared by many people of all ages and is one of the most common health problems reported. Hearing loss may occur suddenly but is usually a gradual process that occurs over time. This may be hereditary, or it may be caused by physical changes within the ear due to disease, infection or injury.
Balance and Dizziness
Having trouble with balance or dizziness may lead to falls, which can cause serious injuries if left untreated.
Issues with hearing and balance can negatively affect your quality of life, and you don’t have to learn to live with these problems.
Surgical and Non-surgical Options
Many hearing and balance issues do not require surgery. We consider all options based on the needs of the individual patient.
If surgery is called for, our surgeons are specially trained to perform the most advanced ear and skull base surgeries available in the state.
With more than 400 major ear surgeries performed each year, our hearing and balance team has one of the highest surgical volumes in the country. Innovative research and the most advanced surgical techniques are combined with excellent patient care. This leads to better patient results and a high level of patient satisfaction. We also work with the physical and occupational therapists to ensure that you’ll have a full recovery.
