Her hearing is good now and she has improved very well in her speech development.

So kudos to Sneha for understanding kids and being amazing with them!

5 50 Hearing Test

My daughter is almost 5, hence this is the first time she did the speech perception test and almost aced it. What our audiologist( who was wonderful, helpful and very patient) suggested after performing the tests, that my daughter get a second implant. As at the moment she is implanted in her right ear and in noisy environments it gets difficult for her to hear. Other than that she did not require a new map. What amazed me during my visit to the clinic (we live in Pakistan) was how quick my daughter who upon meeting Sneha our audiologist for the first time, instantly responded and built a rapport. Something she takes a long time to do! So kudos to Sneha for understanding kids and being amazing with them!

Our experience was excellent! Staff was very helpful, empathetic and patient.

Ever since Faizah has had the Cochlear Implant she is able to communicate with us

4 50 Hearing Test, Cochlear Implants

Faizah was diagnosed of Neonatal hepatitis with evidence of high bilirubin level and jaundice at 3 days of life. After several examinations to reconfirm her medical diagnosis,she was treated of the ailment at about 6 to 8 weeks old. She was also re-examined at 6 months old and the doctor confirmed she has overcomed the hepatitis.

To our utmost surprise, at 18 months old, we noticed Faizah doesn't respond to the call of her name, any sounds nor make any speech, although she always exhibit a lively and fun-filled attitude all time. At first we thought she was having speech delay due to the medical issue she had at birth but at the second thought we decided to take her for hearing/speech assessments. Hearing assessments were conducted in several audiological centers. At a centre, she was at 1st diagnosed of a moderate hearing loss and was fitted with a hearing aid at age 2 years. After 4 months of using the hearing aids with no sign of her benefiting from them, we decided to take her for a re-assessment. This time the center pleaded that she was under-diagnosed at the initial assessment and that she actually has a profound hearing loss! This news was shocking and the worst we have heard as parents. We were really devastated and scared of what the next step would be . At this point we decided to go out of our country to seek for second opinion, and if possible a quick treatment for our darling daughter's hearing issue.

Before embarking on the trip, we had researched on internet and read about hearing loss and its treatment options. We realized that quick intervention is required to get the best results, so we planned to do all we could quickly to intervene in this medical challenge.

An appointment with a hospital in Dubai was scheduled where she was assessed and reconfirmed of her severe to profound hearing loss. We were advised that a Cochlear implant is the best option for her which was any way in line with our research. Although we felt more devastated at the confirmation of the level of our little one's hearing loss but we remained strong and kept faith that she will get the treatment as soon as possible with the best outcome. But then, we decided to read more on CI and research on other hospitals that do CI surgeries in Dubai - UAE. Out of the hospitals and clinics we searched, we then decided to make a phone call to HEARLIFE Clinic - Dubai, and that was it!.

Right from the moment the call was placed to book an appointment- (received by amiable Ms. Yasmina - the receptionist) to the appointment day (where we met the office manager- our wonderful Ms. Merab(always exhibiting a professional, kind and understanding attitude) through out the assessments period- ( assessed by the ENT Doctor - Dr. Bassel, Audiologists (Ms. Sneha and Ms. Bushra) and Speech therapist(Ms. Dua’a), to the surgery day , post surgery appointments, activation day to rehabilitation process, Hearlife has been wonderful. Always with listening ears, comforting and soothing words. Infact from the day we stepped into Hearlife, I had the belief that we were in the right place and had made the best choice for our daughter.

A month after the assessments with Hearlife Clinic, precisely March 2016, Faizah had her Cochlear Implant Surgery which was done by the renowned ENT surgeon, Prof Georg Sprinzl alongside Dr. Bassel(such a wonderful doctor he is). She was then activated 4 weeks post surgery by the audiologists, Ms. Sneha and Ms. Bushra (best audiologists I have met in the journey of my adorable daughter’s hearing loss). Right from the assessment of my daughter to her device activation (a heartwarming moment to see our daughter being able to respond to sounds, even at low decibel levels- a moment that my husband and I will always cherish for the rest of our lives). These audiologists exhibited the best professional character , motherly, and always patient even when Faizah exhibits her childish attitude. They gave her the time and care needed. I can’t but say they are simply the best......A day after her activation, she started her (re)habiliation with the Speech therapist, Ms. Dua’a (Faizah's best pal) who has been doing all required (AVT, speech therapy) to ensure Faizah gets the best out of the treatment. She won’t stop giving us assuring words that keep our hopes alive that someday Faizah will completely do well in her listening, language acquisition and speech development.

Since commencement of Faizah's rehabilitation with the audiology team for device mappings and Ms. Dua’a for AVT and speech therapy, she has acquired words to help her on her road to speech language acquisition that will pave the way for a brighter future.

A common thought in the minds of parents of a hearing loss child is that the hearing impaired child will speak immediately after device activation and that was the same hope we anticipated. This dream came true weeks later only and ignited a feeling of pure joy when I lifted Faizah one day barely 3 weeks after activation and she lifted her brightened face to exclaim” Mama”. It was music to my ears and a definite confirmation that my adorable is in the hands of the best interventionists, audiologists and speech specialist - the Hearlife Clinics Dubai team.

Our adorable is now 3 years and we see progress every single day. Ever since Faizah has had the Cochlear Implant she is able to communicate with us and anyone around her. Her quality of life is so much better now. She can hear us and we can hear her trying with her speech development- it’s still a long journey though. Her language ability is now 5months, but we are convinced that she will catch up pretty soon! We see progress daily! .

I would recommend the Clinic- all the staff were very professional and caring

5 50 ENT Specialist Consultation

As a result of an ear infection (both ears) following a cold four months previously, I was deaf and experienced most annoying tinnitus. On holiday in Dubai with our family, I was looking for professional advice as to what, if anything could be done to help me - and my quality of life. I looked on this site, as well as others in Dubai, and very fortunately found a reference for the hearLife Clinic!
Yes - I would recommend the Clinic- all the staff were very professional and caring.

I asked for advice - and this was freely given to me, with care, understanding and with empathy too.
Whilst nothing could help restore my hearing, I was guided through the process and provided with a great deal of assistance.
As my stay was short - this help was greatly appreciated.
I will return for follow up with next In Dubai. Thank you all!

Ear Nose and Throat

 

Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus Treatment - hearLIFE Clinic

Tinnitus is a very common problem and symptoms can result from a wide range of underlying causes, which can be: prolonged exposure to abnormally loud sounds, ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain, or wax build-up.The effects of tinnitus strongly affect quality of life of the individual and can be devastating in severe cases. Sleep deprivation and disrupted concentration make performing the most basic day-to-day tasks difficult.Hearing assessments are used to determine whether there is any hearing loss, which is a common cause of tinnitus. The most common tests used are tinnitus pitch and loudness matching, Auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing and Otoacoustic emissions (OAE) testing, for which our clinic is specialized.After performing any necessary diagnostic testing the hearLIFE Clinic specialist will create a customized treatment program, which could include hearing aids with maskers, feedback therapies, etc.

 

Cochlear Implants

Cochlear Implants - hearLIFE ClinicCochlear Implants - hearLIFE Clinic

Cochlear implants are designed for individuals with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. These individuals receive little or no benefit from hearing aids. Cochlear implants bypass the non-functioning part of the cochlea in order to deliver electrical signals directly to the auditory nerve, thus providing the opportunity to hearing impaired individuals to participate in the hearing world again.

hearLIFE Clinic employs some of the most experienced Cochlear Implant surgeons with experience of more than 1000 implantations

 

Ear Infection Treatment

Ear infection is common in children but can occur at any age. Symptoms of a middle ear infection (acute otitis media) often start 2 to 7 days after the start of a cold or other upper respiratory infection and often include ear pain and fever among others. Consult your ENT specialist if you are experiencing any of those symptoms.

 

Tympanoplasty

Tympanoplasty, which is also more commonly known as the repair of the eardrum, is a surgery performed to reconstruct a perforated ear drum or the ossicular chain bones, i.e. small bones of the middle ear. Patients requiring a tympanoplasty often have suffered from a from chronic ear infection. In rare cases also a trauma to the eardrum may be a cause. There are different types of tympanoplasties (I-V), depending on what parts of the ear are being reconstructed.

 

Ear Syringing

A build-up of earwax can cause dulled hearing and sometimes other symptoms. Irrigating the ear with water will usually clear plugs of earwax. Lukewarm water is squirted into the ear canal. and dislodges the previously softened plug.
 

ENT Specialist Consultation

ENT doctors largely specialise in different aspects of ear, nose and throat care. At hearLIFE Clinic we are dedicating ourselves to the treatment of hearing loss related problems. Our specialists will look at your individual medical history and examine the functions of your ear. An otoscope is used to examine the ears and illuminate the eardrum, so that the surgeon can identify normal landmarks and pathology.

In addition the use of tuning forks as a gauge of hearing may sometimes be used as part of the consultation.

However, sometimes it is required to undertake formal hearing tests to ascertain a more exact level of hearing, which are then undertaken by our Audiologist.

Occasionally the eardrum and canal need to be viewed under magnification and a microscope can be used to provide this. The microscope allows for binocular vision, depth of field and the use of microsuction if necessary, to remove wax or debris from an ear canal.

 

Hearing Test

Hearing Test - hearLIFE Clinic

To diagnose hearing loss and to find out which treatment options are most suitable, a number of routine screenings and tests are necessary. These tests can be done at all ages—even with newborn children.Using modern audiological testing equipment, our Audiologist will conduct a detailed diagnosis and will initiate all additional necessary clinical examinations to get a comprehensive overview of your condition. After all examinations have been completed, the hearing implant team will give you a detailed briefing and will suggest the optimal solution to fit your needs.

 

Hearing-Aid-Fitting

Hearing-Aid-Fitting - hearLIFE Clinic

Treatment with hearing aids, but especially with hearing implants requires repeated programming or so called "fitting" sessions in order to gradually fine-tune the settings of the hearing aid or processor. Settings will be individualized, to ensure best hearing performance. Patients and their families will also be briefed on how to use the processor or hearing aid and how best to take care of it.

 

Otosclerosis Treatment

Otosclerosis is a condition of the middle ear, where abnormal bone material grows around the stapes, one of the three ossicle bones and prevents it from passing on the incoming sounds into the inner ear. Therefore otosclerosis goes along with gradual hearing loss. Otosclerosis may be treated through the use of hearing aids or surgical intervention.

 

Septoplasty

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure done to correct the nasal septum, which devides the two nostrils. During the procedure the nasal septum is straightened and repositioned in the middle of the nose.
 

Sinus Surgery

The overall goal of sinus surgery is to improve the drainage pathway of the sinuses.  By opening the natural drainage pathway of the diseased sinus, the frequency, duration and severity of infections should be reduced. 
 

FESS - Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

 

Speech Therapy

During speech therapy a trained specialist assesses speech and language development and treats various speech and language disorders. In our clinic we are accepting the following cases:

Articulation disorders, problems with

delayed language,

stroke,

voice disorders,

cases with learning difficulties and hearing loss related speech problems.
