Contrary to popular opinion, modern ENT practice ensures that you need not suffer from hearing loss and think it is "incurable"! With the latest cutting edge technology and safe surgical techniques, it is possible for every person to hear clearly. Surgery for discharging ears and diseases like otosclerosis has evolved to a state where over 95% of patients could have their hearing restored to near normalcy. Stapedotomy, earlier thought to be a "dangerous" operation is now a safe, daycare procedure, done with great precision with the Micro drill, much safer than laser, and you could leave hospital in two hours after surgery and be back to work!
In the rare event where disease has destroyed the middle ear, and surgery cannot restore hearing, we have new innovations like Bone anchored hearing aids (BAHA) and middle ear implants that are safe and very effective. Unlike earlier, these devices are now so sophisticated that they cannot be seen easily and can even be used to treat "nerve" deafness so that you need not be seen wearing a hearing aid!
Even if modern digital hearing aids can give almost natural hearing, there are a few who cannot benefit. Cochlear implants are a boon to such, and in our center, over 160 people have had this surgery, with outcomes far exceeding expectations. A dream team of surgeons, audiologists and therapists work hard to ensure that this comes true
