The first-of-its-kind procedure offers a unique treatment for the silent health issue affecting nearly one million Washington D.C. area residents
An innovative procedure has created a way to improve hearing health that offers groundbreaking freedom for the nearly one million Washington D.C. area residents who struggle with hearing loss. The Esteem® hearing implant is the first and only FDA-approved technology to allow people with hearing loss to hear all the time, even underwater, with a permanent and invisible hearing solution.
Washington D.C.’s Dr. Sanjay Prasad, one of only a select number of doctors in the U.S. performing the Esteem® procedure, emphasizes the importance of treating hearing loss, particularly for baby boomers and seniors focused on aging well. According to Dr. Prasad, hearing health is a vital element of healthy, active aging.
- Hearing health can help individuals stay more active and connected with friends and family into their later years, contributing to better quality of life.
- Treating hearing loss can help individuals avoid hearing loss-related mental health concerns, such as social isolation and dementia.
“Approximately 36 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss, which can cascade into other serious health issues if left untreated,” said Dr. Prasad, of Metropolitan Neuroear Group with offices in Rockville, Md., and Fairfax, Va. “The Esteem® solution offers consumers a cutting-edge option in hearing health that seamlessly melds with active lifestyles.”
The Esteem® uses the ear’s natural anatomy to improve hearing quality without external or ear canal devices. Unlike a hearing aid, the Esteem® has a battery life that lasts for years.
“The implant’s sleek design is invisible, comfortable, and long-term, which allows individuals with active lifestyles to live with more freedom and flexibility,” said
Dr. Prasad. “The Esteem® not only makes hearing health simpler than ever before, but it also encourages those suffering from hearing loss to take action and decrease potential subsequent health problems.”
