Audiology is the branch of science and medicine that focuses on hearing, balance, and related disorders. Professionals in this field, known as audiologists, diagnose, manage, and treat patients with hearing loss or balance problems. They work with patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly.

Audiologists are trained to diagnose, manage and/or treat the following:

  1. Hearing Disorders: These disorders can occur in people of all ages and can result from a variety of causes including illness, genetics, exposure to loud noises, and aging.
  2. Balance Disorders: Audiologists can help diagnose and treat vertigo and other balance issues, which are often related to problems in the inner ear.
  3. Tinnitus: This is a common condition characterized by a ringing, buzzing, or hissing sound in the ears. Audiologists can help manage this condition, even though a complete cure is often not possible.
  4. Hearing and Speech Rehabilitation: Audiologists also provide rehabilitative services for patients with hearing impairments. This might involve fitting and adjusting hearing aids, assisting with cochlear implants, and providing auditory training and speech reading.

Audiologists work in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, private practice, schools, and research labs. They often work closely with otolaryngologists (ear, nose, and throat specialists), speech pathologists, and educators, among others.
