Ears, Hearing, and Balance 

Our ears do so much for our quality of life: they help us communicate, enjoy music, and keep our balance. Studies show that if we cannot hear well, we will be less likely to succeed in school, have more challenges in relationships throughout our life, and have earlier onset of cognitive decline. Similarly, balance problems make life unsteady and jeopardize our safety. 

We want you to flourish throughout your life, no matter how old you are! At Greenville ENT, we have the tools and the expertise to diagnose and treat your hearing and balance problems at every stage of life.

Advanced Hearing Restoration

We have several ways to treat advanced hearing loss, including: 

  • Cochlear implants 
  • Osseointegrated hearing implants (Baha®, Osia®, and PontoTM)
  • Stapedectomy 

Our multidisciplinary Cochlear Implant team is co-led by Dr. Rampey and Dr. Alexander. Together they have restored hearing to hundreds of adults and children. Greenville ENT is proud to be the only practice in the Upstate that offers Cochlear Implantation.

Pediatric Ear Problems 

Recurring childhood ear infections are by far the most common ear problem in the world, and our partners here at Greenville ENT can treat them. Eventually, most kids will outgrow ear infections, but sometimes they’ll need tubes placed in their eardrums to help prevent infections while they grow and develop. Your pediatrician can help you understand if you need to take this step. For more complex cases, our specialized pediatric ENT division can help.
