Hearing Aids

Learning how to adjust to and compensate for a hearing loss can sometimes be confusing and frustrating.  Hearing aids are a very important part of this process.  They make it possible for you to hear sounds that you would not hear otherwise.  However, hearing aids are limited in how well they can solve ALL of your listening challenges, and they may not provide complete resolution of the problem. That’s why it is so important to learn as much as possible about your own particular hearing loss and about all of the solutions available to you.  At The University of Arizona Hearing Clinic, our Living WELL with Hearing Loss approach considers device selection and follow up as an important part of a more comprehensive program that is tailored for all of the needs related to your hearing loss and lifestyle needs.

Services At a Glance:

Hearing Implant Candidacy Testing

  • This will help to assess if a hearing implant is the best follow-up option for you.
  • In general, cochlear implants are appropriate for individuals with permanent moderate to profound hearing loss. Cochlear implants may be suggested when hearing devices no longer allow the wearer to understand speech well. For individuals with single-sided deafness or conductive and mixed hearing losses, bone-anchored implants may be considered.

Initial Device Fitting, Mapping, and Long-term Management

  • Initial device fitting and follow-up is provided to allow new users to gain comfort and keep track of progress. In addition, long-term management and trouble-shooting is provided.

(Re)habilitation

  • (Re)habilitation addresses auditory and communication strategies to maximize benefit with hearing implant devices.
