Don't let them ruin your life!


Management of hearing problems

Disabling, even painful, hearing problems are by no means trivial. By making an appointment with an otolaryngologist at Turó Park Clinics, you will benefit from a personalized diagnosis and treatment, following a well-oiled protocol.

The diagnosis

  • The first step is to put a name on the pain that is eating you up. During the consultation, the ears are checked. Sometimes a simple earwax plug can be the cause of the pain. This autoscopic auscultation can also detect eardrum disease. But, if nothing is found, the ENT will require further investigation, as well as audiometry.
  • Audiometry is a hearing assessment performed in a soundproof booth. The goal is to broadcast noises through headphones in order to assess the ear canal. This medical examination is used to diagnose and determine the intensity of deafness and is crucial for the prescription of prostheses.


Once the problem is defined, it's time for therapy. Our otolaryngology service is equipped with the most advanced technologies, offering a wide range of treatments relieving your hearing problems.


In order to fight otitis, ENT recommends taking antibiotics for young children. It is also possible to administer corticosteroids intravenously or orally for sudden hearing loss, requiring urgent consultation.


Certain situations require patients to undergo surgery.

  • Installation of aerators in the event of serous otitis
  • Tympanoplasty in case of perforation of the eardrum
  • Functional surgery to "repair or replace ossicles"
  • Placement of certain hearing aids (cochlear implants and brainstem implants)

The equipment

Hearing aids cannot restore complete hearing. However, they do amplify sound perception and improve the communication skills of people who observe damaged hearing.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about hearing problems

What is newborn hearing screening?

Newborns are most often screened for deafness by neonatal screening. This screening includes :
  • A hearing screening test, offered before the newborn is discharged from the maternity hospital. This screening should help to determine whether further testing is necessary.
  • Examinations carried out before the end of the infant's third month, when the screening examination could not take place or did not allow the child's hearing abilities to be assessed.

What are the risks of hearing loss?

In addition to being a hindrance to social relationships, which can lead to isolation, presbycusis can be associated with a wide range of complications if left uncompensated, such as depression, reduced physical fitness, dependency, increased risk of falls, cognitive decline, etc.

How do you know if you have hearing problems?

You can test your hearing by answering the questionnaire below:
  • Do you have difficulty understanding proper names and numbers (address, telephone number) on the telephone?
  • Do you find it difficult to follow a conversation in a noisy place?
  • Do you find it difficult to follow a conversation when several people are talking at once?
  • Do you often turn up the sound of the television and radio?
  • Do you have to make an effort to follow a conversation?
  • Do you sometimes make people repeat themselves?
  • Do you have the impression that people are slurring their words?
  • Do you sometimes answer out of turn because you have not understood the question?
  • Do you have problems understanding children?
  • At the cinema, do you find it difficult to understand foreign films in English?
  • Do you find it difficult to hear the doorbell or the telephone ring?
  • In the street, are you sometimes surprised by the arrival of a vehicle?
  • Do you find it difficult to understand in the dark?
  • In nature, do you find it difficult to hear the rustling of leaves or the singing of birds?
If you answered "yes" to three or more of these questions, you may have a hearing loss and should consult your doctor.
