Ear Science opens new patient-focused ear & hearing surgical facility

Ear Science Surgery Facility

Ear Science Institute Australia (Ear Science) proudly presents its latest achievement – the opening of a state-of-the-art, patient-focused ear and hearing surgical facility in Subiaco, Perth.  This innovative facility is located on the ground floor of Ear Science’s corporate headquarters, which is co-located with the prestigious Subiaco Private Hospital at the George Jones Family Centre. We work with ear surgeons who work independently to provide patients with greater access to ear and hearing surgery to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment.

This cutting-edge surgical facility will provide patients with direct access to highly specialised ear and hearing surgeons enabling timely diagnosis and treatments. With a commitment to placing the patient at the centre of its ear and hearing care, Ear Science is proud to offer this dedicated surgical facility, which has been designed to attract the very best specialists in the field to Perth.

Professor Marcus Atlas, a renowned ear and hearing implant surgeon who has trained many fellows in ear and cochlear implant surgery fellowship, will be the first surgeon to consult at the surgical facility.  For cochlear implantation, alongside Professor Atlas, all specialist ear surgeons are fellowship-trained and members of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons.

Our ear surgeons work with, not for, Ear Science Institute Australia and practice medicine with complete clinical sovereignty. 

We look forward to additional independent surgeons being attracted by the Ear Science Surgical Facility,” said Rob Gordon, Chariman of Ear Science Institute Australia.

Ear Science’s new surgical facility is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technologies and provides a comprehensive range of diagnosis and treatment options for ear and hearing conditions.  The multidisciplinary team of ear and hearing surgeons and specialists has been assembled to ensure that patients receive better access to the most efficient and effective treatment possible – personalising their care.

Ear Science Institute Australia is committed to enhancing the lives of those living with ear and hearing disorders.  Its comprehensive, and research-led ear and hearing services are backed by 18 Lions Hearing Clinics located across Western Australia.  Now clients can access their entire hearing journey, from assessment and diagnosis, treatment and management, hearing aids and implants, to surgery and ongoing care.

With the opening of this dedicated ear and hearing surgical facility, Ear Science Institute Australia continues to set the standard for excellence and access in ear and hearing care in Western Australia and beyond.
