Courtesy of MED-ELOnly someone that’s suffered partial or full loss of hearing can truly understand the impact it has on our lives.

A cochlear implant can help adults with moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss, who derive minimal benefit from conventional hearing aids.

There are four steps involved in cochlear implantation.

  1. Referral – Referrals are accepted from ENT Specialists, Audiologists, and Advisors.
  2. Assessment – working out if a cochlear implant is right for you
  3. Operation – fitting the cochlear implant
  4. Switch on and rehabilitation – getting the implant working and then helping the wearer to use it well.
