Deafness, Hearing Aids, Therapy for Hearing and Speech disorders
I work very closely with my team of audiologists, hearing and speech therapists at our Speech – Hearing & Cochlear Implant Centres. We have set up programmes for neonatal (newborn) hearing screening at Apollo Hospital and other medical centres, which is paramount for the early detection of hearing impairment in babies.
Facilities for comprehensive testing for children and adults with hearing impairment are available, and all options for the management of hearing loss are discussed. We have the expertise to fit a variety of external and implantable hearing devices. Expertise in hearing therapy and speech therapy with the team of trained therapists ensures we obtain the best results possible.
