Hearing Loss Specialists and Care Centers

More commonly known as ear, nose and throat physicians (ENTs), Northwestern Medicine otolaryngologists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of diseases and disorders of the head and neck, including hearing loss.

Otolaryngologists provide care for a wide range of disorders, including those dealing with hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech and language. We also manage the treatment of head and neck cancers, as well as perform reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery.

At the heart of our success is the complementary approach through multidisciplinary teams of physicians1 who work to bring top quality care to patients from around the world. Your treatment team may include:

  • Otolaryngologists
  • Audiologists
  • Surgeons
  • Plastic surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Psychologists
  • Social workers
  • Speech pathologists

Hearing loss is just one of several types of problems that can affect the ears and one’s ability to hear. Our audiologists offer customized evaluation, treatment and services to match your specific needs and unique situation.

Our audiology specialists also provide evaluations and treatments for patients suffering from dizziness and balance disorders due to Meniere disease or other factors, as well as tinnitus (ringing, hissing or roaring in the ear).

We offer complete hearing aid services designed to meet your needs, whether you need to amplify sound or limit volume. Our experienced audiology specialists will help you select the style that fits your condition and lifestyle.
