Center for Audiology and Hearing Aids

The UPMC Center for Audiology and Hearing Aids performs routine and specialized hearing evaluations and provides treatment for permanent hearing loss. Our goal is to provide evidence-based care related to your hearing loss and unique communication challenges.

Your UPMC audiologist will collect appropriate data about your hearing loss, communication needs, and lifestyle. He or she will then provide you with a personalized solution, matching available technology to your specific needs.
