Tinnitus is a sound a person can hear in one or both ears. Approximately 10% of the adult population have experienced tinnitus in the last year.
Tinnitus is a condition that occurs when there is a problem with the auditory system, which includes the ear, the auditory nerve that connects the ear to the brain, and the portions of the brain that process sound.
Our clinic provides a comprehensive evaluation for tinnitus, including a microscopic ear examination and examination of related head and neck structures, comprehensive hearing testing and additional audiological testing to try to determine if there is a treatable cause for tinnitus. The steps above help us to recommend management strategies for tinnitus.
