Ears & Hearing


Ear Infections

Ear infections are commonly the result of a bacterial or viral infection of the eardrum, the ear canal, or the middle ear. The middle ear is the air-filled space behind the eardrums, and infections are often painful because of fluid buildup and inflammation. Ear infections are more common in children, but can affect adults as well.

Balance Disorders

Our sense of balance is primarily controlled by a structure in our inner ears called the vestibular system. A loss of proper function in this area can lead to balance deficits and feelings of dizziness, spinning, or falling. Our doctors can diagnose and provide treatment for balance disorders so that you can regain your equilibrium.

Tinnitus/Ringing in the Ears

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a fairly common problem and affects about 20% of the population. Tinnitus is not a condition itself, but rather a symptom of another condition of the ears. It is important to have your hearing evaluated by an qualified doctor to determine whether any loss has occurred and identify the underlying problem. Once the cause has been diagnosed, we can provide treatment for underlying conditions as well as noise suppression therapy.

Hearing Loss

Patients may begin losing their hearing for a variety of reasons, including age, exposure to loud noise, medications, health conditions, and genetics. In many cases, hearing loss occurs gradually and slowly, making it difficult to notice. Our audiology specialist can use sophisticated diagnostic equipment to measure the degree of hearing loss and put together an appropriate treatment plan.
