When Hearing Aids are no longer ENOUGH!

While most individuals with hearing loss can benefit from wearing hearing aids, for some people the devices do not offer the necessary advantages. Why does this occur? In short, all that hearing aids do is magnify sounds. Even the most sophisticated hearing aids may not be able to help certain persons with Severe to profound hearing loss since increasing the volume of a sound does not always improve its clarity. Even if you wear hearing aids, you can still have a very hard time interpreting speech and other sounds.


A Cochlear Implant: What Is It?


A cochlear implant is a neuroprosthesis that is surgically inserted to help a person with a severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss to hear and understand speech. Cochlear implants may enable better speech understanding in both calm and noisy settings with the aid of therapy.







Who can benefit from cochlear implants?


A cochlear implant would be regarded as a viable option for any adult or child who suffers from bilateral (both ears) severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss and finds no or limited benefit from wearing hearing aids. For babies as young as six months old, cochlear implants can be performed to maximize the child's benefit during this crucial stage of development.
