Hearing Restoration Surgery

Hearing loss is conductive in nature when the sound waves fail to travel to the inner ear and sensorineural in nature when the damage is in the auditory nerve and the inner ear. A thorough examination by the otologist aided by the audiological tests helps to identify where the problem lies.
