1. Free Hearing Loss & Dementia Risk Assessment
Performed by our Board-Certified Hearing Specialist, Christopher Sumer, our Hearing Loss & Dementia Risk Assessment is a comprehensive diagnostic procedure intended to define your degree of hearing loss and examine the impact of hearing loss on how you understand words and conversation in both quiet and background noise environments. The best hearing treatment begins with the best evaluation and Excellence in Audiology™ certified clinics all over the country are using proven evaluation skills to provide the best treatment in restoring clarity.
2. NeuroTechnology™ Hearing Aids & Treatment Options: The Journey to Improved Speech Understanding
We hear with our brains, not our ears.
NeuroTechnology™, the new generation of hearing loss technology, is designed to treat the cognitive impairments of hearing loss. Unlike traditional hearing aids that are manufactured to simply make things louder, today’s treatment options restore clarity of speech in all listening situations, including rooms with significant background noise. There are several NeuroTechnology™ hearing aid options available depending on the results of your hearing assessment.
Neurotechnology™ stimulates the auditory system based on several factors, including the extent of impairment and the delay in treating hearing loss (e.g. how long have you been living with untreated hearing loss). Treatment begins at the initial appointment and over the first few weeks, there is an adaptive process occurring as your brain becomes adapted to restored clarity.
3. Adaptation to NeuroTechnology™
In an ideal world, we would begin treatment for each patient the first day their hearing loss started. However, in the real world, statistics tell us that patients tend to wait for an average of 7 years before starting hearing treatment.
Stimulation of the auditory system has a positive impact on the entire brain – and needs to be delivered at a conservative pace to ensure a successful treatment. Our method of adapting clarity and volume levels within the first few months has been shown to be the most effective treatment rate – with the highest patient satisfaction.
Upon beginning treatment, you will experience new sounds and visit our office 2-3 times over the first 30-60 days to dial in on exact sound stimulation levels. While science is the driving force behind NeuroTechnology™, patient experience and feedback help guide the treatment process.
Understanding the adaptive process of the brain is the basis for our comprehensive training program that encompasses total auditory rehabilitation and active, engaged living for our patients. As your hearing diminished over time, so did your brain’s ability to orient, localize, and focus on the speech sounds you want to hear. Think of this stage of treatment as the “physical therapy” for your ears.
Our comprehensive auditory and brain stimulation program will help you think faster, focus better, and remember more of what you hear.
4. Scientific Verification of Improved Hearing Ability
It is critical that treatment is scientifically verified and validated. ‘Real-ear’ hearing aid measurements provide a method to objectively assess the accuracy and stimulation levels of NeuroTechnology™ when placed in your ear. Real-ear measurements are considered the “gold standard” method for achieving proper clarity and stimulation.
5. Ongoing Relationship & Personalization of Hearing Needs
