Diagnosing and rehabilitating hearing impairments

The Audiology and Speech Institute at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center employs speech therapists trained to conduct comprehensive tests using the most advanced equipment.
The institute offers you solutions to a wide range of hearing problems and works closely with the Otolaryngology (ENT) Department and the Head and Neck Surgery Clinic.

Hearing Checks and Solutions
•    Newborn Hearing Screening Tests. We conduct dozens of these tests every day. Babies who ‘fail’ these tests are invited back to the Audiology and Speech Institute for further examination.
•    Objective Hearing Tests. Advanced tests that evaluate a young child’s hearing without the need for the child’s cooperation.
•    Behavioral Hearing Tests. These tests are adapted for all ages, children and adults alike.
•    Cochlear Implant. We conduct evaluations and tests (for all ages) in preparation for the implant operation. We also accompany patients as they adjust to their new hearing experience.
•    Bone Anchored Devices. Hearing solutions for people with conductive or mixed hearing losses or single-sided deafness who cannot otherwise wear 'in the ear' or 'behind the ear' hearing aids.
Our extensive testing system means we can identify hearing deficiencies early. Our staff accompanies the families throughout the process and offers guidance to ensure the best possible treatment and rehabilitation.
