Diseases & Conditions

  • Ear Infection
    The experts at Jefferson can relieve the symptoms of ear infections such as earaches, ear noise or buzzing, and hearing loss.

  • Earwax Blockage
    Earwax protects your ear canal by trapping dirt and slowing the growth of bacteria. But when it accumulates in your ear or becomes too hard to wash away naturally, a blockage occurs.

  • Hearing Loss
    Our experts excel at diagnosing and treating hearing loss, which is one of the most common conditions affecting older adults.

  • Meniere's Disease
    Our team of physicians offers personalized care and treatment for Meniere's disease which causes dizziness, ear pressure, ringing in the ear and hearing loss.

    Visit a Jefferson expert to be treated for surfer's ear, an irritation that can also occur from other activities such as sailing and jet skiing.

  • Swimmer's Ear (Otitis Externa)
    Our specialists provide diagnosis and treatment for swimmer's ear, an infection of the outer ear canal caused by bacteria that grows from water trapped in the ear.

  • Tinnitus
    Our specialists stay on the leading edge of treating tinnitus which causes ringing, buzzing and humming in the ear.
