Skull Base Surgery

Rarely, hearing loss in a single ear (or “asymmetrical” hearing loss) can indicate a tumour on the hearing nerve. As a result, your GP may refer you to an Evolve ENT surgeon for an urgent appointment if you experience single-sided hearing loss, tinnitus (‘ringing’ in one ear), or neurological symptoms such as facial numbness.

Evolve’s ENT surgeons will perform a comprehensive examination and arrange the necessary tests to confirm your diagnosis – where surgical intervention or radiation-based therapy is indicated, Evolve may co-ordinate your care with our Brisbane-based Skull Base expert colleagues.
