Do you qualify for a cochlear implant?

Cochlear implants help adults with sloping moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears, or children 12 months or older with severe to profound hearing loss in both ears and are not receiving enough benefit when using hearing aids. For some people, using a hearing aid(s) with a severe to profound hearing loss can be like listening to a loud, badly tuned radio.You may hear parts of what is being said and it may be loud enough, but the words are not clear.

   Note: Wearing hearing aids first is a necessary step in the evaluation process for a cochlear implant.

How a Cochlear Implant works.

There are two primary components of the Cochlear Nucleus®System: the external sound processor and the implant that is surgically placed underneath the skin attached to an electrode that is inserted in the cochlea.

We offer a choice of sound processor wearing options.
