What Are Cochlear Implants & How Do They Work?
Cochlear implants are small electronic devices that are surgically implanted in the inner ear. Standard hearing aids amplify sound in damaged areas of your ear, but cochlear implants essentially replace the function of your damaged sensory cells. They can send sound signals directly to your auditory nerve, which picks up sound waves and delivers them to your brain. The cochlea’s auditory nerve fibers send these signals to the brain, which translates them into the sound you hear.
Bone-Anchored Hearing Aid Devices
Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids – Like a cochlear implant, there may be an adjustment period before you can fully enjoy your bone anchored hearing aid. However, many patients will notice a marked improvement within three weeks to three months after their implantation. Bone anchored hearing aids can be used alongside accessories to enhance your experience.

What Are Bone Anchored Hearing Aids & How Do They Work?
Bone anchored hearing aids are also small electronic devices, but they are worn on the outside of your ear. They use vibrations to send sound signals directly to your inner ear, bypassing any damaged areas. The vibrations are generated by an implant that is surgically implanted in the bone behind your ear. The sound processor is worn behind your ear like a standard hearing aid and can be connected to the implant portion by either a magnet or a titanium abutment The sound processor converts sound waves into vibrations that are sent to the abutment. These vibrations are then transferred to the bone, and finally to the inner ear, where they are interpreted as sound.
