New Treatment For Tinnitus Reduces Symptoms

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Medical technology is helping alleviate symptoms for some people who suffer from tinnitus. Tinnitus, commonly known as ringing in the ear, affects more than 50 million Americans

The new technology is called "the Levo System". It's a newly FDA approved therapy that trains the brain to ignore the ringing.

"What you're trying to do with most tinnitus therapies is make the sound more tolerable," said Dr. Yu-Tung Wong, ENT-Otolaryngologist, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

The technology mimics the sound of a patient's tinnitus.  The patient listens to the sound through headphones while sleeping for 90 nights non-stop.  The brain becomes more accustomed to the sound over that time. 

Patients that have tested the Levo System say they can now go for days and hardly notice their tinnitus.
