Hearing Aid Repairs and Programming
Hearing aids are tiny computers that deliver all of life’s sounds directly to your ears by evaluating your environment multiple times per second. Sometimes, these little computers need adjusting or repairs. If you have hearing aids that need some care, our Doctors of Audiology will assess your devices and make appropriate changes.
If you would like to schedule for in-house repairs and programming, please give our office a call.
Custom Hearing Protection
Hearing loss can occur for many different reasons, but a major contributor to permanent damage is excessive noise exposure. If you spend most of your time in heavy amounts of noise exposure, you might want to consider protecting your hearing with custom products. These devices are molded to your ears giving you the most comfortable experience while enjoying loud concerts, working in industrial settings, or just everyday loud sounds.
Bone Anchored Hearing Aids
A bone-anchored hearing system maximizes the hearing of individuals with conductive or mixed hearing losses. A conductive or mixed hearing loss exists in individuals with middle ear dysfunction. This means that the individual has a functioning cochlea (organ of hearing in the inner ear), but still has hearing loss because the transmission of sound getting to the cochlea is disrupted in some way. Common causes include chronic fluid in the middle ear, ossicle dysfunction (bones in the middle ear), and surgically repaired middle ears. A bone anchored hearing aid essentially bypasses the disrupted middle ear, and stimulates the functioning cochlea directly through bone-conduction hearing, which involves a hearing aid surgically implanted in the skull bone above the ear.
