Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations:Available for children of all ages and adults.
Cochlear Implants: Spokane Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic has been providing cochlear implant services since 1993. Cochlear implants are designed to provide sound to people with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss in both ears. Typically the implant is presented as an option to patients who get either no benefit or very limited benefit from properly fitted hearing aids. Please follow this link to a video regarding Cochlear Implants.
