Are there different types of hearing loss?

Most always hearing loss is categorized as either conductive or sensorineural.  Most hearing loss is sensorineural and commonly referred to as “nerve loss.”  A combination of the two types we call a “mixed hearing loss.”  Unilateral hearing loss affects one ear; bilateral hearing loss affects both ears.  Treatment options vary for the different types of hearing loss.  Sensorineural hearing loss cannot be corrected by surgery or medication, but may be treated using advanced hearing aid technology.
