Hearing Associates is proud to be a part of the Cochlear Provider Network and is skilled at the assessment, fitting, and adjustment of cochlear implants, hybrid hearing, and bone anchored hearing aids.
Hearing loss can strike anyone of any age at any time. Perhaps you’ve had it since childhood. Perhaps you first noticed it at work, struggling to hear co-workers or presentations. Perhaps it was at a party. Or, perhaps, it’s been a part of your life for so long that you can’t remember how it started.
Just as no two stories of hearing loss are the same, neither are the stories of overcoming it. In many situations, Cochlear™ can help with one of these treatment options – hybrid hearing, a cochlear implant or a bone conduction implant. To determine if either is right for you, schedule an appointment with a one of our audiologists to start the discussion.
Designed to help adults and children with severe to profound hearing loss, our Cochlear™ Nucleus® System mimics the natural hearing function of the inner ear. Using a uniquely designed electrode, it bypasses damage to the inner ear and delivers sound directly to your cochlea.
- Microphones on the sound processor pick up sounds and the processor converts them into digital information.
- This information is transferred through the coil to the implant just under the skin.
- The implant sends electrical signals down the electrode into the cochlea.
- The hearing nerve fibers in the cochlea pick up the signals and send them to the brain, giving the sensation of sound.
