The goal of treatment for hearing loss is to improve hearing as much as possible. The kinds of treatment used depend on the type of hearing loss and the underlying cause. Conductive hearing loss can often be corrected by medical or surgical treatment. Most types of sensorineural hearing loss are permanent and cannot be corrected medically or surgically, but hearing can be improved with hearing aids and assistive devices. Infrequently, sudden sensorineural hearing loss can be treated with high dose steroids.

Treatment may involve the following:

Medical Treatment | Surgery | Hearing Aids | Assistive Devices | Cochlear Implant | Communication Skills
