Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Hearing loss is an auditory condition that affects nearly 36 million adults in the United States. This hearing condition results in partial or complete loss of hearing among all affected patients. People may experience sudden hearing loss as a result of viral and bacterial infections, trauma to the eardrum, stroke, diseases, congenital disorders, and head injuries. Loss of hearing can gradually occur over many years due to loud noises that accompany various occupations, listening to loud music, or high pitch sounds, head tumors, drug use, and heredity factors. Presbycusis (age-related hearing loss) is recognized as the most common cause of hearing loss in older adults. Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) specialists at Florida Hospital are trained to screen, test and diagnose partial and total hearing loss, while providing a wide range of treatment options.
