Hearing deficits vary from patient to patient. For those with severe hearing loss, we offer cochlear implants. These state-of-the-art devices can help restore hearing so that patients can fully engage with their household, coworkers, and community.

What Is a Cochlear Implant?

Cochlear implants are small electronic devices that produce a sense of sound for patients who are severely hard of hearing or deaf. One portion of the device sits behind the outer ear; the other is surgically inserted into the inner ear. Cochlear implants are FDA approved and covered by most insurance policies, Medicare, and Medicaid.

How Do Cochlear Implants Work?

Rather than restoring normal hearing, cochlear implants provide a representation of sounds that those living with severe hearing loss can use to understand speech and the sounds of their environment. These devices feature:

  • A microphone to pick up sound
  • A speech processor to arrange sound
  • A transmitter and receiver that convert sound signals into electric impulses
  • An electrode array that sends electric impulses to the auditory nerve

Who Is a Candidate for Cochlear Implants?

Cochlear implants are for patients whose hearing is so impaired that all traditional treatment methods, such as hearing aids, are ineffective. The most common candidates for cochlear ear implants are children who were born deaf, older adults with hearing loss due to aging, and adults whose hearing loss is caused by genetics, disease, or other factors.
