AUDIOLOGY & SPEECH CENTER

Audiology aims at Identifying, assessing and rehabilitating hearing, balance and related functions (Tinnitus, hyperacusis) for individuals from birth to adulthood, along with the assistance of the ENT professionals.

Audiology concerns in dealing with individuals complaining of reduced hearing or any other uncomfortable conditions in the ear (For example, pain, itching, blocking sensation, ringing sensation). Further with the recommendation of the ENT professional, a non-medical diagnosis is given to help in identifying and confirming the site and degree of problem in the ear.

With respect to balance, the organ of balance is located in the inner part of the ear close to the auditory nerve and often (not always), this part is the cause of dizziness. Consequently, individuals experiencing a balance disorder often have a hearing loss which is evaluated by the audiologist.
