Mr Andriy Drypen

Audiologist

BSc, MA, GDL

"I thoroughly enjoy working at the Spire Tunbridge Wells hospital. The support that I receive here from the lovely members of staff is second to none, enabling me to provide the best possible care."

I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2008 with BSc Hons in Audiology. I was very lucky to be one of the first students, whose degree entailed training across the whole field of Audiology, including specialist focus on diagnostics and in-depth investigations of hearing and balance disorders. Upon completion, I undertook further training at several hospitals in Kent, where I honed my skills in vestibular function testing and rehabilitation, as well as all aspects of paediatric Audiology. Reflecting on my desire to help a wider population and raise awareness of Audiology, I further took part in several Audiology services planning, policymaking, implementation and on-going management. Thus all my patients benefit from a holistic approach developed through years of patient-facing and management experience in Audiology.

As well as delivering general Audiological services, I am highly experienced in complex hearing investigations, diagnostics and management of the vestibular (balance) system, and rehabilitation of hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis.

Working with the sophisticated hearing aid technology, I help patients to improve their quality of life through better hearing. In addition to providing the latest rechargeable and Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids, I am also able to fit the non-surgical BAHA and ADHEAR hearing devices both to adults and children.

My knowledge and experience in the paediatric Audiology field allow me to see children of any age for subjective and objective hearing assessments.
