Cochlear implants can connect or reconnect those with hearing loss to the world of sound.
The technology is primarily used to give access to spoken language to patients with severe or profound hearing loss where even well-fitted hearing aids are ineffective. It is suitable for both children and adults, and can dramatically improve a patient’s quality of life.
A cochlear implant, which is implanted through surgery, transforms speech and other sounds into electrical energy that is used to stimulate surviving auditory nerve fibres in the inner ear.
Outcomes vary between patients and may be dependent on various factors. Our team will discuss this with you in some depth prior to implantation.
