For more than 30 years, Baha bone conduction implants have connected people to the world of sound. We often refer people to other medical professionals, and in most cases a good outcome can be achieved.
We will always treat you with respect and genuinely care for your needs as fully as humanly possible.
Our research, driven by genuine customer care over the last 7 years or more, indicates that we have achieved an extremely high success rate in treating tinnitus. This business, called Rees Lewis Tinnitus and Hearing LTD, will have a dedicated centre here in Swansea. We can provide a tailored rental scheme for non-custom made Aids if you prefer this to purchase options.
Julie and I emphasise service above sales and pride ourselves in providing the highest level of service available anywhere.To confirm this fact,over 95% of our clients have become such by recommendation so far. In this type of hearing aid, the electronic circuit is housed and concealed inside the temple pieces. Hearing loss can result from many different causes, some of which can be successfully treated with medicine or surgery, depending on the disease process. Conductive hearing loss – when hearing loss is due to problems with the ear canal, ear drum, or middle ear and its little bones (the malleus, incus, and stapes). Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) – when hearing loss is due to problems of the inner ear, also known as nerve-related hearing loss. Mixed hearing loss – refers to a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. Types of conductive hearing loss include congenital absence of ear canal or failure of the ear canal to be open at birth, congenital absence, malformation, or dysfunction of the middle ear structures, all of which may possibly be surgically corrected. Conductive hearing loss from head trauma is frequently amenable to surgical repair of the damaged middle ear structures, performed after the patient’s general medical status is stabilized following acute traumatic injuries. A genetic form of conductive hearing loss is otosclerosis, in which there is bony fixation of the stapes (the third little bone of hearing in the middle ear), where sound can’t get to the middle ear.
Otosclerosis – a hereditary disorder in which a bony growth forms around a small bone in the middle ear, preventing it from vibrating when stimulated by sound. Sensorineural hearing loss can result from acoustic trauma (or exposure to excessively loud noise), which may respond to medical therapy with corticosteroids to reduce cochlea hair cell swelling and inflammation to improve healing of these injured inner ear structures. Sensorineural hearing loss can occur from head trauma or abrupt changes in air pressure such as in airplane descent, which can cause inner ear fluid compartment rupture or leakage, which can be toxic to the inner ear.


Sudden sensorineural hearing loss, presumed to be of viral origin, is an otological emergency that is medically treated with corticosteroids. Bilateral progressive hearing loss over several months, also diagnosed as autoimmune inner ear disease, is managed medically with long-term corticosteroids and sometimes with drug therapy.
Fluctuating sensorineural hearing loss may be from unknown cause or associated with Meniere’s Disease. Sensorineural hearing loss from tumors of the balance nerve adjacent to the hearing nerve, generally are not reversed with surgical removal or irradiation of these benign tumors. Sensorineural hearing loss from disease in the central nervous system may respond to medical management for the specific disease affecting the nervous system. Irreversible sensorineural hearing loss, the most common form of hearing loss, may be managed with hearing aids. Hearing loss is a common problem that often develops with age or is caused by repeated exposure to loud noises.
Conductive: When sounds are unable to pass from the outer ear to the inner ear often as a result of a blockage. It is possible to have a combination of both hearing losses, this is known as a mixed loss.
Treating hearing loss depends greatly on its location, cause and how long it has been present for. It is important for anyone considering a hearing aid to know that there are choices available. Whether you would like to know the latest news and events or need to access to the latest professional and consumer product information - you will find it here. You should visit your Cochlear country website for the most accurate information specific to your location.

Cochlear Baha® products are proven, clinically tested and documented solution for treating conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss and single-sided deafness.
If you have a need or preference for a certain product or service, we will always strive to accommodate this if appropriate to your needs. In fact it has become so successful that we have started a new business dedicated to a greater focus upon treating this condition.
These aids are recommended for treating trans missive or mixed hypoacusis, or whenever it is physically impossible to use aerial conduction devices (otitis media, otosclerosis, radical mastoidectomy, otorrhea, ear canal stenosis, etc.).
A small receiver in the arm of the glasses rests comfortably behind the ear and vibrates in response to sound. This means that there may be damage in the outer or middle ear and in the inner ear (cochlea) or auditory nerve.


If these are not amenable to successful surgical correction, then the hearing alternatively may be improved with amplification with a bone conduction hearing aid, or a surgically implanted, osseointegrated device (for example, the Baha or Ponto System), or a conventional hearing aid, depending on the status of the hearing nerve.
Autoimmune inner ear disease is when the body’s immune system misdirects its defenses against the inner ear structures to cause damage in this part of the body. Symptoms of Meniere’s disease are hearing loss, tinnitus (or ringing in the ears), and vertigo. If the hearing loss is mild and the tumors are very small, hearing may be saved in 50 percent of those undergoing hearing preservation surgery for tumor removal.
For example, hearing loss secondary to multiple sclerosis may be reversed with treatment for multiple sclerosis.
When hearing aids are not enough, this type of hearing loss can be surgically treated with cochlear implants.
I allow plenty of time for each assessment so I can give each client the time that they deserve.
With the Baha bone conduction implants, Cochlear provides people of all ages with superior hearing performance and innovative design features that represent the best in bone conduction hearing solutions.
The hearing loss associated with this type of damage is called Sensorineural and is often associated with excessive noise exposure.
Otosclerosis can successfully be managed with surgery to replace the immobile stapes with a mobile stapes prosthesis or with a hearing aid.
Meniere’s disease may be treated medically with a low-sodium diet, diuretics, and corticosteroids. If there is no response to initial medical therapy, infectious middle ear fluid is usually treated with antibiotics — while chronic non-infectious middle ear fluid is treated with surgery (or pressure equalizing tubes).
Research suggests that the measles virus may contribute to stapes fixation in those with a genetic predisposition to otosclerosis. If the vertigo is not medically controlled, then various surgical procedures are used to eliminate the vertigo.
The incidence of otosclerosis may be decreasing in some communities due to measles vaccination.
Otosclerosis (a hereditary disorder in which a bony growth forms around a small bone in the middle ear, preventing it from vibrating when stimulated by sound) usually causes a conductive hearing loss, a hearing loss caused by a problem in the outer or middle ear.
