COCHLEAR IMPLANT EVALUATIONS AND PROGRAMMING

What Is a Cochlear Implant and How Does It Work?

The cochlear implant system consists of a surgically implanted medical device and an external processor. Cochlear implants are used for individuals with moderate to profound hearing loss. The cochlear implant bypasses the damaged portion of the ear and stimulates the hearing nerve directly. The normal acoustic hearing process is replaced with electrical signals. The brain recognizes these electrical signals as sounds. Approximately 3-4 weeks after surgery, an Audiologist will program the device.

Auditory training and periodic programming of the device will be necessary to ensure maximum benefit with the cochlear implant.
