COCHLEAR IMPLANTS

Struggling to communicate due to hearing loss can be stressful and frustrating. With hearing technology and innovations today, you may regain your ability to hear and continue to live your life to the fullest. One of the best solutions, depending on the severity or profoundness of your hearing problem, are Cochlear Implants.

 

What Are Cochlear Implants

Cochlear implants are surgically implanted devices that help people with severe to profound hearing loss that can no longer be helped by hearing aids. They are designed to replace the function of damaged sensory cells in the inner ear by transmitting sounds to the hearing nerve to restore hearing.

The Hearing Clinic provides Cochlear Implants services in partnership with some of the best in the field.
