Hi, what was the reason for the deafness? Single Sided Deafness (SSD) can be very debilitating to the person suffering. There is no cure for permanent Single Sided Deafness (SSD). However, there are treatments available which can restore the sensation of hearing to the deaf side. The treatment is possible irrespective of the length of time a patient has suffered from SSD. There are two main treatment options available for SSD, the BAHA (a bone anchored hearing device) and the CROS aid (Contralateral Routing Of Signal). So, re consult an ENT specialist and discuss these options with him. Regards.
