CNC Hearing and Balance Center is hoping a recent expansion will help raise awareness about the seriousness of hearing loss, which is not always merely a sign of aging but could indicate a more serious medical problem. The Center has opened a new office uptown at 3715 Prytania; Suite 502, to complement its Marrero clinic. Both locations include a medical staff that includes a neurotologist and audiologists whose priority is to get to the root cause of hearing loss.
Dr. Moises Arriaga, director of the CNC Hearing and Balance Center urges the public to never take hearing loss for granted. “Hearing loss is preventable and can often be restored using latest technologies. Most importantly, hearing loss can sometimes signal a more serious medical problem,” Dr. Arriaga insists.
As a neurotologist, Dr.Arriaga is trained as both an otologic neurosurgeon (neurotology) and head and neck surgeon. Research has also show that untreated hearing loss may increase the risk of Alzheimer’s. Mild hearing loss has been linked to brain atrophy in older adults and hearing loss is about twice as common in adults with diabetes.
“Too often, people ignore their hearing loss,” he says. “The loss can be insidious because your brain tends to compensate for the deficit. There have been many advances that can restore hearing.”
His remarks come just as CNC Hearing and Balance Center expands to provide state-of-the science hearing aids and assistance, including diagnostic services and treatment:
Implantable hearing devices
Middle Ear Surgery
Tinnitus Evaluation and Treatment
Digital hearing aid fitting and follow-up services
Hearing Aid Checks and Servicing

CNC Hearing and Balance Center is an affiliate of Culicchia Neurological Clinic. Dr. Arriaga and his staff are able to rely upon the depth of the region’s largest neurological practices.
