Treatment Options for Hearing Loss

Hearing is one of those things most of us take for granted and it is only when it is taken away, especially if it is sudden, that we realize just how important it is for our safety, our communication with others, our sense of belonging, the pleasure of sound and so much more.

We at MESIARC provide the best treatment depending on the type and cause of hearing loss. There are several types of hearing aids that can be prescribed, and surgical treatments such as cochlear implants may be indicated. Each patient is unique and comprehensive work-up by our experienced team of neuro-otologists is the first step to determining the best treatment.

There are several obvious indicators of hearing loss. For example, a patient may report having to ask people to repeat themselves or turning the television volume louder than the rest of the family. A patient may also think that many people mumble or have difficulty communicating in a noisy environment. A one-on-one encounter, such as a patient-clinician conversation in a quiet room, may not be a good indicator of hearing loss because there are many redundant cues in the speech message. However, if the patient shows obvious difficulty during conversation in a quiet room, hearing loss is almost certain.

Hearing loss is a silent problem affecting millions of patients who receive treatment for other health conditions. Screening for hearing loss could be implemented easily into a primary care environment to identify and treat patients at an early stage. MESIARC offers numerous treatment options and technology to improve communication and quality of life for a substantial number of people.

Otology Master Class
From the Organizing desk

Dear friends,

MESIARC CME is here again. We have always strived to bring you the best in Otology, over the past 10 years, Our live surgery workshops, have focused on cutting edge surgery, detailed teaching, scientific deliberations of the highest order and top class video coverage from one of the most advanced otological theatre suites in the world this time, we are focusing on the enigma of budding otologists - cholesteatoma and Otosclerosis. Two very diverse conditions, but requiring surgical expertise of the highest order to deliver good results. The two-day surgical workshops will feature both myself and a luminary in Otology, Dr. Ashesh Bhumker from Thane, Mumbai and we would be demonstrating in detail the finer aspects of surgical techniques that can be adapted by a keen otologist to sustain good results over time.

We have lined up an array of diverse cases- and the techniques that we intend to demonstrate include minimal access stapedotomy, Laser stapes surgery, stapes surgery with stapes head amputation for tendon preservation, bone obliteration technique for cholesteatoma, a variety of grafting techniques, intact canal wall tympanoplasty for limited cholesteatoma and a series of revision surgeries.

Do send in your registrations early as we have to limit attendance to 70 seats. A smaller crowd is ideal for active discussions which is something so characteristic of MESIARC CME programs and we do not want to deviate from that agenda.

Yours truly,

Manoj MP

Otology in Perspective Live Surgery 2015
From the Organizing desk

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

Otologic surgery is special for its intricate anatomy, extreme precision and attention to detail. Traditionally done with the operating microscope, and now in some centers across the world with the endoscope, the repetoire of the art is widening.

Confusion persists. Advocates of endoscopic work claim that the microscope is passe, and traditional surgeons laugh off the ability of the one handed

The truth lies somewhere in between; there are specific conditions that require either of both of the techniques. Dogmatism, they say, is the end of science.

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

MESIARC has always stood for dissipation of knowledge and the live surgical workshops are not pubilicity events, nor are they grandiose. We have just one agenda- to educate.

This workshop with a difference aims to demonstrate both endoscopic and microsopic skills in otologic surgery, while attempting to define which is more suitable for what. Do come and enjoy!

Yours truly,

Manoj MP  
Organizing chairman
