Audiology & Speech Therapy

The Audiology & Speech Therapy unit at EMC Hospital offers consultations and services for the treatment of hearing disorders, including hearing loss, for individuals aged 5 years and above. Hearing disorders range from partial to total inability to hear and can result from various factors such as congenital deformities, aging, continuous noise exposure, acute ear infections, and ear trauma. Hearing impairment can significantly impact language learning in children and lead to feelings of loneliness in the elderly. Most conditions can be identified and treated following comprehensive audiological assessments.
