What Sets Us Apart 

Tinnitus is the perception of noise in the ears or head that is unrelated to an external source. Many people experience tinnitus as a high-pitched ringing in the ears, but it may have a hissing, whistling, or buzzing sound, among other qualities. It is often persistent and can be distracting, annoying, and distressing. 

NYU Langone physicians and audiologists can diagnose the type of tinnitus affecting you and determine whether there is an underlying cause. Our ear, nose, and throat (ENT) physicians and audiologists understand how profoundly tinnitus can affect your psychological and physical wellbeing. They have the experience and resources to help you take control of your symptoms.

Treatment at NYU Langone

There are many strategies for treating people who have tinnitus. If the condition affects your quality of life, our experts can recommend masking or tinnitus retraining devices, hearing aids, and cognitive behavioral therapy to help you manage symptoms for the long term.
