Treatment for right side sudden hearing loss that has lasted for 1 year

Sudden hearing loss is a sudden hearing loss and tinnitus, usually due to stress.

The usual treatment for sudden hearing loss is taking a lot of steroids, which have many side effects and a low success rate.

In this way, 60% of patients do not improve even after being treated.

This patient came in Cheong-Min Clinic for sudden hearing loss that has lasted for 1 year.

At the time of the onset of the disease 1 year ago, he/she was admitted to a university hospital for steroids treatment but did not have any improvement.

He/she was treated only once at Cheong-Min Clinic.



Right side pure tone audiometry showed a 5~15 decibel improvement.

(The smaller the number, the better the ears hear.)


The speech discrimination score was checked as well.



19 points before the treatment and showing clear improvement to 32 points after the treatment.

(The larger the number, the better the ears hear. A change of 6 or more is considered a meaningful change.)


We expect further improvement with additional treatment.




Treatment for tinnitus and hearing loss that lasted for 10 years at Cheong-Min Clinic


The patient came in for hearing loss and various sounds in the ear.

He/She said it occurred due to stress.

Rhinitis and deviated nasal septum were also treated together.

This is the result after hearing treatment at our clinic.


On the right side, you can see that the right low frequency and medium frequency, which are involved in daily conversation, have improved by 10~15 decibels or more.


(The smaller the number, the better the ears hear.)



The speech discrimination score also improved significantly from 14 to 33 points.

We are still in the process of treatment for this patient and expect to see more improvement with additional treatments.











A patient who couldn’t hear at all but can hear now. Auditory nerve regeneration treatment at Cheong-Min Clinic

The patient came in 3 years ago due to sudden hearing loss after sleeping.

The patient said he/she currently uses a hearing aid on the left side, but he/she can not hear even with a hearing aid.

He/she had some dizziness.

He/She have had an eardrum injection at another hospital.

Rhinitis has also been confirmed.

He/she had auditory nerve regeneration twice in a row at the Cheong-Min Clinic in Korea

Pure tone audiometry was done.

(It is a test to measure the volume at which sound can first be heard.

The smaller the number, the better hearing of that frequency.)




On the left side by frequency,

500Hertz: 70–>70–>55 (15decibels improvement)

1000Hertz: 75–>65–>55 (20decibels improvement)

2000Hertz: 80–>70–>70 (10decibels improvement)



A change of 5 decibels and above is regarded as a meaningful improvement beyond tolerance range!

The above patient showed significant improvement in only 2 treatments.

The patient said he/she can hear better!!!

After treatment, the hearing aid sounded too loud, so he/she decided to reduce the hearing aid volume.



The speech discrimination score was checked as well.

(It is to check if the patient can discriminate the meaning of the word after listening to the loudest sound he/she can hear comfortably.

The higher the number, the better the hearing.)




Increased from 0–>2–>6The patient, who did not know the meaning at all, began to understand the meaning of the word, which means that a person who was able to understand only by looking and reading lips can now make conversation after the treatment.




We planned to do one or two more treatments and stop, then additional treatment.

*Sometimes, many people ask if this is true but all of the cases here are improved hearing cases and there is no fabrication or misrepresentation at all.
