A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that replaces the function of the damaged inner ear.
Cochlear Implants Benefits
Cochlear implants can help people who:
- Have severe to profound sensorineural (inner ear) hearing loss in both ears
- Receive no real hearing benefit from hearing aids
- Have poor speech recognition
- Children in particular stand to gain significant benefit in hearing performance as a result of the increased sound stimulation during the developmental "window" that occurs during early childhood.
