Hearing loss

My son has a hearing loss which we found only when he was 4 year old.Currently using hearing aid for both ears. But only the left ear aid is helpful for him. Right he has profound sensory neural hearing loss. Is there any chance of improvement or any treatment methods without a hearing aid.

Treatment should be taken care by The hearing health care team (com- prising the audiologist, otolaryngolo- gist, teachers of the child with hearing impairment, speech-language patholo- gists, and other educational and med- ical personnel) should assist the fam- ily with intervention for hearing loss. Interventions may include observation with increased attention to speech and language development, hearing aids, auditory-assisted systems for the school environment, or more invasive surgical hearing devices such as cochlear im- plants or bone-anchored hearing aids...Consult nearest ent surgeon for further discussion and details.
