From Our August, 2018 Newsletter: LEVO, a New Treatment for Tinnitus

As many as 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus, a health condition commonly known as “ringing in the ears.” according to the American Tinnitus Association (ATA). Musicians, factory workers, military veterans, and many others endure its effects, including problems with concentration, sleep, anxiety, and depression.

The Levo system is a patented, FDA-cleared software platform designed to reduce tinnitus through personalized sound therapy. Once the system identifies the frequency and intensity of each patient’s tinnitus through a series of interactive exercises, a unique sound is created to customize tinnitus therapy for use while you sleep. Grounded in the neuroscientific field of cortical plasticity, and based on the brain’s ability to remodel itself, this new sound interacts with a patient’s neural activity so that new connections are built and the sounds of tinnitus are no longer “heard.” Using the Levo System at night allows patients to leverage the brain’s natural ability to diminish the effects of tinnitus over time.

When Hearing Aids Are Not Enough

Hearing implants are different than hearing aids. While hearing aids help many people, they simply amplify sounds. Unfortunately, as hearing loss progresses, sounds need to not only be made louder, they need to be made clearer as well. Hearing implants can give you that clarity.

Cochlear has the following hearing implant solutions for many types of hearing loss:

  • The Hybrid Hearing System
  • Cochlear Nucleus Implant System
  • Baha Systems

We now offer Cochlear evaluations and mapping services in our office. We can evaluate if you are a candidate for cochlear implantation, and to understand the associated risks and benefits.

You can make an appointment today by calling us at 817-488-1637 or by visiting our Contact page.
