Jefferson Balance & Hearing Center

Hearing loss is a problem shared by many people. In fact, it is one of the most common health conditions, particularly as people age. Most people over the age of 65 have some hearing loss. By age 80, nearly all people have some degree of hearing loss. However, older adults and the elderly are not the only population who are at risk for hearing loss. The most common cause of hearing loss in children is otitis media (fluid in the middle ear), and this disorder predominantly affects infants and young children. Hearing impairments can be caused by environmental factors such as noise, medications and toxins. Some hearing loss may be treated or improved with medication and/or medical intervention, but for millions of people with permanent hearing loss, hearing aids or potentially an implantable device can improve their ability to hear and communicate more easily. Hearing aids and implantable devices can improve quality of life and keep users active and engaged in meaningful activities.  

The Balance and Hearing Center within the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery shares the mission with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to provide the highest quality in patient care, education, and research. Our team of physicians and audiologists offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment for hearing loss, ear disease, dizziness, and balance disorders.
