Treatment for hearing loss depends on the type and cause.
Cerumen (ear wax) blockage causing temporary hearing loss can be treated by an audiologist, GP, or ear nose and throat (ENT) physician. Different methods are available to remove the blockage. The method used will depend on the texture and type of cerumen present.
In certain cases, surgical interventions are required to treat hearing loss. For example, a patient with recurring ear infections may require a minor surgery, where tubes are inserted to help the ear drain. In some cases for profound hearing losses, cochlear implant surgery could be an option.
