My name is Dr. Michael McCandless. I'm the audiologist here at Main Line Ear, Nose & Throat. When I was trying to decide what to do in terms of a career, my dad's a physicist and he's an acoustical engineer, so I was always interested in acoustics and that sort of started me on the path towards audiology. We are on the cutting-edge of the latest technology, including the Lyric implantable device as well as the Earlens. We are honored to be the only office in the state of Pennsylvania that is currently offering the Earlens aid device that is transmitting sound through light. Traditional hearing aids, generally, go out to about 6,000 Hz. Humans hear from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. And so, by transmitting the sound through light, we're able to touch those higher frequency regions that a traditional aid has never been able to do. Generally, patients that come to the office are patients that are noticing that they're having a little bit more difficulty hearing in noisy situations, like background noise situations including restaurants. I personally do a lot of continuing education to make sure that we are always on the cutting edge.

I believe that to excel in any career, one has to keep reaching, learning, and sharpening their skills, instead of resting idle on some self-declared title. At the Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, we continually strive to bring you the latest advanced techniques and products in the field of facial plastic surgery, both cosmetic and reconstructive.
