What are some symptoms of hearing loss?
Others complain that:
- You have the television too loud
- You have problems hearing birds or wind
- You have difficulty hearing female voices or children
- You have difficulty hearing in groups
- You find yourself confusing words or making silly mistakes, misunderstanding conversations
- Other people, or family members, think you have hearing loss
What are the different types of hearing loss?
Conductive hearing loss occurs from loss of sound sensitivity resulting from abnormalities of the middle and/or outer ear. This type of loss is common in children with ear infections; once the infection has cleared up, the hearing is usually restored. Sensorineural hearing loss results from abnormalities in the inner ear and/or nerve paths to the brain. The auditory cells and nerve are permanently damaged. This is the type of hearing loss often referred to as “nerve deafness.” Mixed hearing losses are those that have symptoms of both conductive and sensorineural hearing losses.

Does your office offer minimally invasive laproscopic surgery?
Yes, ourphysicians are all experienced in minimally invasive "belly-button" surgery that allows most surgical procedures to be done in an out-patient setting without an overnight stay. Our physicians are also trained in Robot Surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System. This new technology allows our trained doctors to perform complex surgical procedures through a few tiny incisions; as a result many patients experience less postoperative pain, a quicker recovery and a faster return to normal activities.

Can contact lenses be worn for sports?
Yes, contact lenses provide excellent vision for most sports. However, keep in mind that contacts do not provide protection from injury. Contact lens wearers should consider using sports safety goggles for maximum protection during sports activities.
