About the department
The Department of Pediatric Hearing Disorders at the Samitivej Hospital Bangkok specializes in the diagnostics, treatment and restoration of hearing and speech. Children of all age groups (from infants to school-age children) are offered hearing testing using otoacoustic emission and/or SLAEP technique. The department's doctors have in their arsenal various effective treatment methods, which are selected individually for each young patient. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Greetha Moungthong.
Depending on the clinical case, the department's specialists use hearing aids or cochlear implants for the treatment of hearing loss. The department's medical service range also includes follow-up monitoring of patients with hearing aids in order to adapt the hearing aid to suit the needs of a particular patient. Thus, the team of highly qualified department's doctors makes every effort to provide patients with the best diagnostics, treatment and follow-up monitoring.
