The House Ear Institute, a non-profit organization, aims to improve the quality of life of those with ear diseases or hearing or balance disorders. Its scientists explore the causes of auditory disorders on the cellular and molecular levels, and refine the application of auditory implants and hearing aids. Established in 1946, the institute has made many advances in the evaluation and diagnosis of hearing and balance disorders, and in the development of new techniques in medical and surgical treatment of these conditions. This includes the development of the auditory brainstem implant (ABI) for individuals deafened by bilateral auditory neuromas (nerve tumors) due to the hereditary disease neurofibromatosis type 2. Outreach programs focus on increasing public awareness of noise-induced hearing loss. Lead Line provides a nationwide information and referral service (800) 287-4763 (CA) or (900) 352-8888 (all other states).
