Hearing deficiency treatment can begin when the person is diagnosed with hearing loss. There are can may different causes for hearing impairment. Some of these can be treated with medicine or surgery depending on the process of the disease. There are three type of hearing loss: Conductive hearing loss, sensori neural hearing loss and mixed hearing loss. Malformation of the ear, canal or the middle ear can cause conductive hearing loss. Even fluids in the middle ear and ear infection or poor Eustachian tube function can also contribute to conductive hearing loss. Treatment for conductive hearing loss can be surgically corrected. If it cannot be corrected by surgery, a bone conduction hearing aid, a conventional hearing aid or a surgically implanted osseointegrated device can be fitted. Conductive hearing loss that is also known as otosclerosis is also genetic and can be managed with surgery or hearing aid. Sensorineural hearing loss happens due to acoustic trauma. Some case of sensori neural hearing loss can be treated with cortico-steroids. Irreversile sensori-neural hearing loss can be managed with hearing aids. If the hearing aids are not sufficient, it can be surgically treated with cochlear implants. Treatment for mixed hearing loss is to treat the condition medically before getting a hearing aid fitted. Most times there are positive results to this treatment. The duration of this treatment takes a few weeks as the patient has to get adjusted to the hearing aid and may have to go for multiple sessions with the doctor for assessment.
