Hearing Health

The ability to hear is something we usually take for granted, that is, until we begin to lose it.

More than 50 million Americans have hearing loss. This includes one in five teenagers and 60 percent of our returning veterans.

We talked to the Hearing Aid and Audiology Specialists at Lake Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery to learn more about the types of hearing loss that can affect us and how they are treated.

Hearing, Baby

Babies start hearing sounds before they are born. After birth, babies watch their parent's faces and hear them speak. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends hearing screenings for all babies at least by one month of age.

Paige Holt, Doctor of Audiology at Lake, Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery explains how audiologists screen babies for hearing loss, and what parents need to look for.
