About Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can occur at any age and can be caused by something as common as an ear infection or earwax buildup. Hearing loss can also happen due to aging, exposure to loud noise, physical injury, or a medical condition such as a tumor and may be accompanied by tinnitus (ringing in the ear), dizziness, or imbalance.

The UMMC Difference

UMMC Hearing Care is staffed by licensed and certified doctoral level audiologists and a team of experienced support staff who work with referring providers to treat hearing loss. Our team can evaluate all aspects of hearing loss and balance disorders, and we offer a full range of treatments for patients of all ages.

We provide the latest medical, surgical, and technological services, including procedures only available at UMMC and are home to the largest team of audiologists in the state.
