Ask an expert about hearing loss (UCLH web chat) 

This one hour web chat took place at:
10.30 - 11.30pm on Tuesday 20 January 2015.

There are over 10 million people in the UK with some form of hearing loss, that’s one in six of the population.  If hearing loss is affecting you or someone you know, we had an expert available in our web chat to answer your questions.  Mr Jeremy Lavy is an ear, nose and throat consultant at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital. Mr Lavy specialises in surgery to restore hearing, such as  stapedectomy (a surgical procedure of the middle ear to improve hearing) and cochlear implant, (use of an electronic device to provide sense of sound to profoundly deaf).  He was named as one of the UK’s top doctors by The Times in 2012 for his work that has transformed the lives of children.
