Tinnitus is when people hear extra sounds like ringing or buzzing.

Hyperacusis is when people hear sounds extra loud or painful.

New tools, new tech, new treatments, new products, new services. I come from the Dark Ages of the 1980s when nothing could be done. Now something can be done.

I recommend this book strongly. This book is incredibly comprehensive; basically a lifetime’s worth of hard work studying. It’s a compilation of every fact of the matter, as well as personal insights…This toolbox is really helpful.

I suggest that all oto-rhyno-laryngologists take a look at it. They could discover how to be more useful to their patients than they usually are at this time.
