Untreated hearing loss can negatively impact your quality of life, social and emotional well-being. It can affect your ability to understand speech, learn in a group setting or participate in discussions. However, hearing loss can be treated either medically or through rehabilitation and is not necessarily a handicapping condition.
At Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital we provide a comprehensive array of services to diagnose and treat hearing loss and hearing disorders. Seeing an audiologist can help determine the type and degree of hearing loss and a course of action to improve hearing and/or lessen its impact.
By providing the most appropriate and evidence-based audiologic treatment plan, our goal is to help each person overcome the consequences of hearing loss and achieve his or her individual communication goals.
