Is there a cure for hearing loss?|

Yes and no: There is no magic pill that will cure hearing loss (hl). Classic hl is due to aging and hearing aids can help us cope. If the hl is due to chronic infections or other diseases, then surgery might be helpful. If you have absolutely poor to no hearing, an ENT can surgically place a cochlear implant in your inner ear to help you hear. In some, steroids have been used with some success.
