Dr Kinjal Mehta
BSc & PhD
"Working at the Spire London East Hospital is enjoyable the faculties are great. The staff are friendly, approachable and committed to excellent patient care."
I began my audiology career in 2009 after having achieved a first class BSc in Audiology at the University College London. For the past 11 years, I have gained expertise in the diagnosis of newborn children, rehabilitation and providing audiological assessments for children and adults.
I specialise in hearing loss assessment and its management for adults and children of all ages. Monitoring for glue ear cases using specialised methods such as visual reinforcement audiometry, play audiometry and tympanometry. Ear Protection and in-ear monitors for musicians and shooters, sleep ear-plugs and swim plugs. My experience has provided me with the skills to confidently and competently test and manage patients with complex audiological issues.
Academically, I have progressed in the field of expertise through my PhD at University College London by recently publishing a papers on the advances of Cortical Auditory Evoked Potentials.

I have contributed to Trends in Hearing & International Journal of Audiology.
I have contributed on the advances of Cortical Auditory Evoked Potentials (CAEPs).This research has contributed to the evidence-base on the usefulness of CAEPs in reducing the social impact that hearing loss can have on a child and her/his family. The study has demonstrated the worth of undertaking CAEP recording in children with a permanent childhood hearing impairment (PCHI).
