Tests & Treatments

  • Auditory Brainstem Response Test
    This test may be performed to determine if you have delayed nerve conduction due to a disturbance of the auditory nerve.

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Cochlear Implant
    A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted device that may dramatically improve one's hearing if profoundly deaf or hard of hearing.

  • Dizziness and Balance Testing
    Diagnosing dizziness is a process that usually involves several tests, including a hearing evaluation and videonystagmography (VNG).

  • Ear Cleaning
    Ear cleaning, or cerumenectomy, is the removal of ear wax when symptoms of an earache, partial hearing loss, ringing in the ear or itching are present.

  • Electrocochleography
    Electrocochleaography is a test that measures the electrical potential generated by the inner ear in response to stimulation by sound.

  • Hearing Aids
    If your physician determines that you have hearing loss and it cannot be treated by medical or surgical intervention, hearing aids may be an option for you.

  • Hearing Evaluations
    A hearing evaluation can be performed to determine if you have hearing loss and whether or not you need a hearing aid.

  • MRI
    Radiologists and oncologists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of your body to help detect many conditions.

  • Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment
    This therapy is proven to interact, interrupt and desensitize tinnitus by delivering a customized neural stimulus, embedded in clinically modified music, that promotes neural plastic changes, allowing the brain to filter out the disturbing tinnitus sound.

  • Physical Therapy
    The goal of physical therapy is to help you increase your mobility, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability, allowing you to move independently through your environment.

  • Tympanoplasty with Mastoidectomy
    Tympanoplasty with mastoidectomy refers to surgery performed to correct middle ear problems in both the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the small bones of the middle ear (mastoid bone) when medical treatment is not effective.

  • Videonystagmography
    If you are experiencing problems with your balance or you are feeling dizzy, this test will help determine if a vestibular (inner ear) disease is behind the cause of your problem.
