Deaf in One Ear?
Explore All Your Options to Hear Better
Wednesday, August 3, 2022
12 pm PST  •  1 pm MT  •  2 pm CT  •  3 pm ET
Presented by Gina Patzkowski, Au.D., and Jack Shohet, M.D.

Whether by physical damage to the ear, a viral infection, or some other condition, somehow you or someone you know have been left with single sided deafness–a significant or total loss of hearing in one ear that is often permanent. Single-sided deafness, unlike traditional hearing loss, can pose unique challenges such as difficulty localizing sound and challenges communicating when others may be on your “bad side”. Many of us are familiar with hearing aids but are unsure what other technologies may exist to help improve hearing and lives of those with single-sided deafness.

If you’ve been curious about what kind of options are available to you, tune in for this live webinar presented by Dr. Shohet and Doctor of Audiology, Gina Patzkowski. Attendees will benefit from their combined medical and audiologic perspectives and hear about every current option, both surgical and non-surgical, on the market for treatment of singlesided deafness.

Join us Wednesday August 3rd at 11:00am PST and be sure to stay tuned after the presentation for the live Q&A–a great opportunity to have all of your questions answered by both Dr. Shohet and Dr. Patzkowski!

Share this information with a friend or family member and get yourself signed up today! The webinar is free and open to the public, but registration is required to reserve your spot. We can’t wait to connect with you!
