The treatment of hearing loss depends on which part of the ear it affects.
Most hearing loss involves the inner ear and is permanent in nature. Treatment for this type of hearing loss may include counselling and communication strategies in cases where the hearing loss is of a mild degree, or hearing aids where the hearing loss is of a more severe degree.
Some hearing loss can involve the middle or outer ear.This type of hearing loss is potentially medically treatable. In such a case, your audiologist will refer you to your doctor with a view for Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon referral.
