For some patients a hearing aid is not enough. Whether you have experienced sudden hearing loss, or you have suffered with hearing loss your entire life, a cochlear implant may be the solution for you. A cochlear implant is more than just a hearing aid. Our audiologists work with local surgeons to create a treatment plan that is right for you.
With decades of experience, our doctors have helped numerous patients restore hearing and improve their quality of life with a cochlear implant. As hearing technology continues to develop, Hearing Associates is at the forefront to provide our patients with unparalleled results. Currently, we offer three types of implants.
How Does a Cochlear Implant Work?
While hearing aids amplify sound so that the damaged components of the ear can better detect it, cochlear implants completely bypass these areas and deliver direct stimulation to the auditory nerve. Cochlear implants help children and adults who have decreased hearing through a state-of-the-art process that allows them to learn a new way to experience the sounds of their environment.
