New Services Offered at Northland ENT
We are excited to offer three new technologies for hearing healthcare at Northland ENT. First, our otolaryngologists have added osseo-integrated hearing implants to their surgical procedures. Drs. Choquette and Freeman have many years of experience performing ear surgeries and determined the need to provide this procedure to their patients. There are several manufacturers for the sound processor system; however, Northland ENT has decided to only implant Cochlear Corporations Baha® system at this time. The surgical operation is performed in the Pavilion Surgery Center and is expected to take up to one hour (not including recovery time). After a period of 3 months recovery, the patient will then meet with one of our Audiologists who will place the sound processor on the implant and program the device. Our audiologists are also trained in the software programming of the Oticon Ponto system. Click here for more information on the Cochlear Baha ® system.
The second service is Videonystagmography (VNG) which is a set of diagnostic tests used to help determine the cause behind a patient's complaint of dizziness or vertigo. This test is an extension to your physicians' examination. The test is performed at our Duluth office only by Dr. Laura Feldhake, Audiologist. Patients should anticipate the appointment length of 90 minutes. Click here for more information on VNG.
Lastly, we have increased our services to patients with tinnitus to include multiple types of sound therapy technologies for individuals with and without hearing loss who suffer from ringing or other unwanted sounds in their ears. Sound therapy, uses external sounds to provide short or long-term relief from tinnitus. The interactions between external sounds and tinnitus can be used to alter the perception of the tinnitus. This approach is used in combination with counseling and hearing aids, hearing aids with sound generators or sound generators alone. One of the new technologies is SoundCures' Serenade ®. At Northland ENT, we use a combined and individual approach to help treat the symptoms of tinnitus. Click here for more information on the Serenade®.
