An optional approach to the treatment of Tinnitus is available through the use of the new open fit hearing aids/devices. This can be an effective solution if there is some degree of hearing loss present with Tinnitus. Although not effective for everyone, approximately 70% of patients with Tinnitus hearing loss will experience some degree of relief with the new open fit high-frequency response hearing devices.
The majority of patients with tinnitus have associated hearing loss. For these patients, hearing aids are used as a means of treatment since the amplification of sounds in the environment will sometimes reduce a patient's awareness of their tinnitus.
This device utilizes an FDA-Cleared Neuroscience-based approach. The Levo system is a personal and patented nightly sound therapy designed to improve the quality of your daily life. You can listen to your unique sound during sleep to have a concert with your brain's natural nighttime activity to help you take charge of your tinnitus. Your provider will work withyou to identify and map your individual tinnitus sound, create a personalized care plan and track your response to therapy over time.
Quite simply, tinnitus is the perception of sounds-often described as ringing, buzzing, humming, roaring, or whistling-that are not present in the external environment.
The term tinnitus does not refer to a single disorder, but rather describes a collection of symptoms that may have a number of different causes. Each person's tinnitus experience is unique, and very real.
