This is designed to reduce surgery and healing times and give better cosmetic outcomes.1,2

Compatible with MRI

You can get an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) with the Baha Connect System.

Approved for a high level of MRI compatibility — up to 3.0 Tesla — all you need to do is remove the sound processor prior to your MRI. The abutment and implant can remain in place.5
