Healthy Living: Otosclerosis. Otosclerosis is the most common cause of progressive conductive hearing loss in adults. Dr. Mark Levenson talks with YNN Medical Reporter, Marcie Fraser, about Otosclerosis.
A generation ago, restoring hearing in people who were profoundly deaf seemed unrealistic, if not impossible. Today, a growing fraction of the half-million Americans who suffer severe hearing loss are using cochlear implants, a sophisticated and controversial technology that many think is nothing short of a miracle.
Will cochlear implants change deaf culture? Deaf culture - the shared language, art and history of deaf people - has moved in a matter of decades from a period of isolation and repression to a time when the wider society has come to appreciate its beauty, richness and strength.
