If what you called "nerve deafness" is actually a malfunction of the internal part of the Chochlea ( inside the hairs are damaged), then yes, there is something that can be done: Cochlear Implants (or CIs). I have two CIs (bilateral) and according to the hearing tests can hear quite well. I use the phone, watch TV, use two way radios, and converse in noisy places...  try  www.cochlearamericas.com  for more information. But you need to have your brother see an audiologist to make sure of his condition.
