Our Audiology clinic at Sengkang General Hospital (SKH) is staffed with a skilled team of Audiologists who works closely with a team of Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctors and other healthcare professionals. Audiologists specialise in performing diagnostic assessments for hearing, tinnitus, dizziness and balance related problems. They also provide hearing rehabilitation services.
SKH’s Audiology offers a complete range of services to help improve patient's hearing-related quality of life and speech understanding through hearing device prescription, fitting, counselling and rehabilitation. At SKH, our patients have full access to quality care from a team of audiology specialists throughout their treatment duration. We strive to communicate findings, plans and outcomes with you and your referring doctor, keeping you involved in the management and progress every step of the way.
In cases where hearing aids are no longer helpful, our experienced team of Audiologists work closely with ENT specialists to provide more advanced options. We also aid doctors in the diagnosis and management of giddiness and vertigo through provision of a wide range of assessments. Our tinnitus (ringing in the head or ears) assessment, counselling and management services are designed to help individuals manage the condition better.
Our Audiologists are part of a multidisciplinary team together with ENT doctors, speech and language therapists that provide complete range of hearing rehabilitation services for people with complex hearing loss. The team strives to bring back the joy of hearing in such complex cases through the provision of cochlear implants or bone conduction hearing implants and co-ordinated rehabilitation services.
The human balance (vestibular) system performs a complex integration of information from eyes, balance organs in the inner ears and the sensation of the relative position of the body (proprioception). For patients with imbalance or dizziness, a series of tests may be performed to help identify the cause and to measure the type and amount of dysfunction. Sophisticated instrumentation and video goggles are used to record the eye movements and to aid in the diagnosis and treatment.
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the ears or head without any external sound source. It is commonly perceived as ringing or buzzing but it may also be perceived differently by different individuals. Tinnitus may affect one's sleep, work and mood, which can compromise one's quality of life. The team adopts a patient-centric approach to educate and offer strategies to better manage their tinnitus.
