Hallo

The possibilities of treatment or possible hearing aids will depend on the type, the cause and degree of hearing loss.

If it is truely a total hearing loss then a hearing aid is not a possibility. If you are uncertain about the diagnosis you should ask your audiologist to explain it in more detail for you or you could get a second opinion. Also ask if Cochlear Implant is not an option.

Please let me know if you need any further information
