Audiology Service


A multidisciplinary approach is required for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of hearing loss that affects the lives of individuals negatively and carrying out the process successfully. Considering this approach, the most significant parts of the staff consist of ENT Physicians, audiologists, audiometry technicians. There are 4 audiologists, 1 training audiologist, 8 audiometry technicians providing service in Ankara City Hospital, The General Hospital, Audiology Clinic.

Newborn hearing screenings are conducted, babies with hearing loss are diagnosed, appliances are supplied and followed, auditory rehabilitation procedures are supported, as well as coordination of diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation procedures by evaluation of the necessary hearing and balance process for all the population as pediatric and adult groups.

Hearing evaluation in pediatric groups is made via 
Behavioral observation Audiometry, Visual Reinforcement Audiometry and Conditioned Play Audiometry while hearing evaluation in adult groups is made via Pure-tone Audiometry and Speech Audiometry. Immitancemetric evaluation, electrophysiological tests such as Auditory Brainstem Response, Otoacoustic Emissions and   vestibular evaluation tests (Videonystagmography, Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials, Video Head İmpulse Test) are performed. Vestibular rehabilitation approaches are applied for the individuals diagnosed with balance problem.

rehabilitation monitoring processes of individuals diagnosed with hearing loss whose amplification is provided by hearing aid or cochlear implant are coordinated.
