How a Ent Can Help With Hearing Loss

Dr. Ram Madasu and the team at Broward ENT Consultants can diagnose and effectively treat hearing loss conditions in Lauderhill, Tamarac, and Coral Springs, FL.

How Is Hearing Loss Addressed?

There is a wide range of hearing loss causes in Lauderhill, Tamarac, and Coral Springs, FL, which can include age and earwax buildup. Other potential causes include infections, diseases, and damage to the eardrum due to trauma or exposure to loud noises.

In many cases, if you notice changes in your hearing, you’ll be sent to an audiologist. They can diagnose the cause of your hearing trouble and provide treatment for the loss that is caused by issues like earwax buildup. However, if the cause is a medical problem, you’ll be sent to an ENT specialist instead.

What Are ENT Doctors?

ENT specialists like Dr. Madasu are medical doctors trained and skilled at treating health conditions impacting the ears, nose, and throat, including those that lead to a loss of hearing. This includes conditions such as:

  • Diseases and cancer
  • Trauma, either from loud noises or damage to the head or ear
  • Nerve issues
  • Sinus infections
  • Headaches
  • Sleep apnea
  • Tinnitus
  • Tumors and any abnormalities
  • Ear pain and discharge
  • Balance problems

ENT Treatments for Hearing Loss

Your ENT specialist will determine the best course of treatment after a diagnosis. The diagnosis can often come from a hearing test but may require an MRI or CT scan for a comprehensive analysis. Once a diagnosis has been confirmed, treatment may include:

  • Medications, such as corticosteroids
  • Corrective surgery to address the cause
  • Surgical implanting a hearing device or ear tubes
  • Hearing aids and other devices
  • Lifestyle changes, like cutting down on sodium or sitting closer to the source of sound
  • Ongoing testing, when needed

Dr. Madasu will discuss all treatment options with you and will work with your other medical care providers when needed for full and comprehensive treatment.

  • "The whole staff was pleasant and efficient. Jenny was very helpful in getting my appointment set. Dr. Madasu was excellent. I wish we had more doctors like him. He read my whole chart before I came in, solved my problem quickly and gave me non surgical suggestions to correct my other issues. He spent a good amount of time with me so I would understand my options. The staff afterwards were very thorough in the instructions to complete my care. I pay out of pocket to see him because my insurance does not cover him but it is well worth it, Overall an excellent experience. If you need an ENT doctor then look no further."
