Ensorineural Hearing Loss:Permanent but Treatable
According to, if you've been diagnosed with hearing loss, you're not alone - one in eight Americans over the age of 12 have hearing loss in both ears. Of the three types of hearing loss, more than 90 percent is sensorineural in nature.

Sensorineural hearing loss means you have damage to the hair cells in your inner ear or to the nerve pathways that lead from the inner ear to the brain.

Although most sensorineural hearing loss is permanent, many with acquired sensorineural hearing loss may benefit from wearing hearing aids. Those with severe sensorineural hearing loss - both congenital and acquired - may benefit from a cochlear implant, electronic hearing devices that are implanted directly behind the ear.

The first step toward better hearing is a thorough hearing examination from a qualified hearing health care professional. The audiologists at Advanced Audiology will determine the cause and extent of your hearing loss, as well as develop an individualized treatment plan.
