Philosophy of Care

The ability to hear and communicate connects each individual to their lives in a unique way. Stacey works to understand those personal needs and encourages each individual to be an active participant in making medical decisions about their hearing health care. She strives to educate the people she works with about their hearing loss and guides the decision making process to ensure their hearing needs are met. Stacey is active in clinical research and presents her data to peers nationally and internationally. Her involvement in research brings opportunities and technology to the Center that is not traditionally available.

A Bone Anchored Implant is appropriate for someone where traditional hearing aids are not efficient because of draining ears or chronic infections, blockage or damage in the outer or middle ear or loss of all hearing in one ear such as following an acoustic tumor removal.
