USC Speech and Hearing Research Center

About Us

Untreated hearing loss in individuals of any age is a serious medical, educational, and vocational problem. Hearing loss not only affects the hearing-challenged individual but their family interactions and personal lives as well. The Hearing Clinic at the USC Speech and Hearing Research Center is committed to early identification and treatment of hearing loss as well as to counseling patients and their families on treatment options. Diagnostic evaluations are available to individuals of all ages.

The USC Cochlear Implant Program and the USC Hearing Aid Program at the USC Speech & Hearing Research Center is dedicated to providing meaningful sound to the lives of individuals with significant hearing loss through a partnership of medicine, technology, education, and rehabilitation. Through appropriate follow-up and rehabilitation, most hearing aid and cochlear implant recipients are able to significantly improve the quality of their lives. The Programs offer children and adults with hearing challenges the medical, technological, and intervention resources to learn to listen and speak – to communicate fully in the world around them.

Our patients are important to us. Our professional staff is committed to providing the best medical, (re)habilitation, and support services available and ensuring that our patients receive the maximum benefits from their amplification.
