Your doctors are right. As of now, Sensory Neural Hearing Loss can be rehabilitated with Hearing Aids and Cochlear Implants as there is no known cure for it. Research is going on with stem cell therapies and we are hopeful that in the near future such a cure will emerge but until then you will have to use the best technologies we have to offer in the field of hearing aids.

if its confirmed as sensory neural hearing loss or SNHL then your doctor is right. hearing amplification using hearing aids is the only option available. if loss is severe and hearing aids are not giving adaquate outcome then cochlear implants can be thought of
