How Dr. Ivory's Treatment Program Improves Hearing Aid Outcomes

In the world of hearing care and hearing technology, where advancements and personalized care shape patient outcomes, Dr. Ivory's ListeningBrain® Treatment Program combines innovation and effectiveness. This program has revolutionized how hearing impairments are addressed, providing patients from Pasadena and La Canada with tailored solutions that significantly improve their quality of life. For anyone seeking an optimal hearing aid experience, ListeningBrain® can provide an excellent foundation.

A Personalized Approach to Hearing Care Works Best

Each individual’s hearing loss is unique, and so should be the treatment. The ListeningBrain® program begins with a comprehensive assessment of the patient's hearing capabilities, lifestyle needs, and personal preferences. This personalized approach ensures that the hearing solutions provided are not only effective but also comfortable and suited to each patient's daily life. By tailoring the treatment, Dr. Ivory helps patients achieve the best possible outcomes with their hearing aids.

The Innovative ListeningBrain® Program

The ListeningBrain® Program goes beyond traditional hearing aids by incorporating advanced neuro-auditory components. This cutting-edge treatment process is designed to interface seamlessly with the brain’s auditory processing systems, enhancing the brain's ability to make sense of sound. The program uses proprietary algorithms that adapt to individual listening environments, improving speech clarity and reducing background noise. This technology not only helps in immediate comprehension but also trains the brain to process sounds more efficiently over time.

Research and clinical studies back the efficacy of the ListeningBrain® Program, showing significant improvements in hearing aid satisfaction and overall auditory processing. Patients report enhanced speech understanding in complex environments and increased ease in following conversations in crowded spaces. The program's foundation on cognitive hearing science provides a dual benefit: it improves auditory access while also stimulating cognitive processes involved in hearing, which are crucial for long-term auditory health.

Over the course of the first few weeks, Dr. Ivory uses a variety of treatment approaches and will use special programming options inside of your devices so that they will automatically and very gradually build to your full prescription. 

When done properly, we believe hearing loss treatment should be more like physical therapy for your ears than getting a pair of glasses, since your brain needs to gradually re-learn how to hear. So instead of setting you to your full prescription right away, Dr. Ivory starts you off at a comfortable sound level that will give you initial benefit with communication and speech clarity, while also allowing your brain to adjust and adapt to the noisy world of sound, again. This is done at a slow enough pace so that your brain adapts to the increased hearing ability without you ever noticing. In most cases, we are “un-doing” years worth of hearing loss, so we don’t expect to make all those substantial changes in just one appointment.

By doing this, we find that our patients wear their devices, on average, around 12 hours a day. You build the habit of wearing them daily. This is one of the key differentiators between success and failure with hearing aids.

Success with the ListeningBrain® Program

At La Cañada Hearing Aids & Audiology, we believe that the ListeningBrain® Program  is one of the most critical elements of success with any new hearing loss treatment. By integrating our knowledge of neurology, neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to lose and regrow neural connections as needed), human behavior, habit formation, and positive psychology, we are able to help our patients experience success rates with better hearing with nearly 100% success.

From patient Marie D. on Google Review:

I needed hearing aids but kept putting it off. There were so many options I didn’t know where to start. Finally, I made a great decision by choosing Dr. Ivory. He takes the time to explain everything and he answers my questions in a way I can understand. I love that he is easy to get in touch with and is great at returning emails. His office is pleasant and easily accessible and he has state of the art equipment. I have had my hearing aids for a month and I am sure Dr. Ivory will continue to monitor my hearing progress.

Real-Ear Measurements Means More Accurate Fittings

Real-ear measurements are a gold standard in personalized hearing care, and Dr. Ivory's facility is equipped with the latest technology to perform these measurements accurately. By measuring how well sounds are amplified within the ear canal, Dr. Ivory can fine-tune hearing aids to the specific acoustic characteristics of each ear. This precision ensures that the hearing aids perform optimally for each patient, delivering sounds that are clear, natural, and at the correct volume levels, vastly improving user satisfaction and comfort.

Dr. Ivory is one of less than 30% of hearing care providers that routinely uses Real-Ear Measures when programming hearing aids and never “guesses” the prescription. Hearing aid fittings using real ear measurements result in superior outcomes, higher patient satisfaction, higher long-term benefit and usage, as well as, improved aided benefit both in quiet and in noise.
