The Audiology Centre of Durdans Hospital – one of the leading private healthcare providers in Sri Lanka – is the only state-of-the-art facility in Colombo providing excellent auditory and speech screening services to patients.

Durdans Audiology Centre offers auditory, speech screening and therapy, providing quality service to patients, a majority of whom are children. It is important to note that it is the only centre approved by the Civil Aviation Authority for auditory and speech screening for the National Airline.

Durdans Hospital has been in the forefront in introducing cutting edge technology over the years and the audiology centre provides vital support for surgical procedures such as cochlear transplants, which require pre and post-operative therapy. 

According to the audiologists at the centre, the preparatory and follow up treatments are crucial for the success of procedures, as speech therapy and training is essential. Patients with hearing impairment require assistance to start speaking, and speech therapy and training becomes crucial. 

The centre which is staffed by audiologists, speech language therapists who are specialists in the field offers hearing tests and high-quality digital hearing aid services, as well as a range of other services dedicated to helping adults with their hearing, balance and tinnitus. 

The Audiology Centre conducts hearing tests, the standard Pure Tone Audiometry (PTA) test which is done to establish the degree of hearing loss in a person, the Tympanometry test done to identify the problems in the middle ear, the Otoacoustic Emission test (OAE) for screening of patients for issues in the inner ear, and Auditory Brainstem Response test (ABR) for testing hearing sensitivity. 

These tests cover areas such as audio-logical testing, balance/vestibular testing, cochlear implants, custom ear protectors, electro-acoustic assessments of hearing aids, hearing aid evaluation, hearing and balance disorders, immittance testing, implantable hearing aids, infant hearing screening programs and paediatric audio-logical testing.

Regular hearing checks should be part of everyone’s healthcare plan and the centre encourages people to take action on hearing loss as soon as the person notices a problem, because the longer you delay, the worse the condition could become.

Over the years Durdans Hospital has invested significantly to ensure that its clinics have the very latest internationally-accepted technology available. Durdans Hospital can be contacted on Short Code 1344 or hotline 0112140000.
