The Rush Approach to Audiology Care
At Rush, we understand the challenges you're facing when you have hearing loss. That's why we've assembled a team of highly-trained professionals who are dedicated to identifying problems and developing custom care plans that meet your communication needs.
Our experts collaborate to accurately diagnose and treat hearing loss and tinnitus in both adults and children. We work with you to discuss the development of skill-specific communication strategies and explore the benefits of using personal sound amplifiers, hearing aids, auditory osseointegrated implants (Baha) or cochlear implants.
Rush Excellence in Hearing Loss Care
- Leading-edge diagnostic technology: With use of the most advanced diagnostic tools available, our team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your hearing and/or balance, identify the cause of your problems and develop the most appropriate plan of care.
- Access to the latest treatments: We help you hear better through various options, including the latest hearing aids, as well assistive listening devices for television, telephone, Bluetooth and other wireless technology.
- Surgical implants to help you hear better: Working with our specialists, you will be able to make informed choices that best suit your needs. For some, surgically implanted devices — such as cochlear implants or auditory osseointegrated implants (Baha) — may be the best option. A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that features both an implant and an external speech processor worn behind the ear, while Baha users wear only a small device on the mastoid bone of the ear with the hearing loss.
- World-class audiologists: All of our audiologists at Rush have doctorate degrees, state licenses and clinical certification through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. As teachers and researchers, we're able to bring the latest advances in audiology to our patients.
