ABR testing is most commonly used diagnose, and determine degree of, hearing loss in newborns and infants. If your baby did not pass their newborn hearing screening, this test will determine if hearing loss is actually present and, if so, what the degree of hearing loss is. This test can also be completed on older children or adults who are unable to respond to, or participate in, traditional testing methods.
Cochlear implants are sometimes recommended when hearing aids do not provide enough assistance. Cochlear implants are surgically implanted medical devices that function similarly to a cochlea - an important part of the ear that helps you hear. At Hearing Professionals of Alabama, we can conduct the evaluation to see if you're a candidate for either device, using a hearing test and additional speech testing in our office.
Hearing Professionals of Alabama features a comprehensive cochlear implant program that offers evaluations to determine patient candidacy, and fittings and re-mapping of programs for all three major cochlear implant devices. Implant service and accessories are available through our office for infants to adults. We are also available to see transfer patients who were implanted elsewhere. If you are a current cochlear implant recipient and would like an appointment, we can help you out. We map and service Cochlear Americas, Advanced Bionics and Med-El devices.
If you or your child are eligible we will discuss device selection and see you for all follow up services after surgery.
If you would like to learn more about cochlear implant or BAHA candidacy, please give our office a call to speak to an audiologist (334) 521-7501.
Tinnitus refers to "ringing in the ears" when no other sound is present. Tinnitus can sound like hissing, chirping, roaring, whistling or clicking.
If you are concerned about tinnitus, our audiologists can test to see if hearing loss is present. Since tinnitus can be associated with a number of hearing-related conditions, the hearing evaluation can help provide information about the cause and treatment options for you. If you have hearing loss, there is a good chance that a hearing aid will both relieve your tinnitus and help you hear. The audiologists at Hearing Professionals of Alabama can assist with the selection, fitting, and purchase of the most appropriate hearing aids or tinnitus treatment devices for you.
