Hearing aids are often the best option for people with hearing loss, but occasionally they no longer help. People with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss may benefit from cochlear implants; those with single sided deafness, mixed hearing loss or conductive hearing loss may benefit from auditory osseointegrated implants, or bone anchored hearing aids (BAHA).
Led by program co-directors Elias Michaelides, MD, and R. Mark Wiet, MD, our team of experienced, compassionate neurotologists, audiologists, physician assistants and nurses will do everything possible to improve your ability to communicate by tailoring treatment to your needs — including recommending the appropriate device for you based on our decades of expertise evaluating and treating hearing loss.
