Sensorineural Hearing Loss
When the hair cells of the cochlea are missing or damaged, this is known as sensorineural hearing loss. This can be caused by genetics, or it can be a result of head trauma, exposure to loud noise, or something else in the environment. Sensorineural hearing loss is also a common part of the aging process.
Sensorineural hearing loss has different treatment options depending on its severity, including cochlear implants and electric acoustic stimulation.
