If you or your loved one are straining to hear each day, even when using powerful hearing aids, cochlear implants may be a solution. Cochlear implants work differently than hearing aids. Hearing aids help those who have mild to severe hearing loss and have some remaining healthy sensory hair cells in the inner ear that can transmit sound to the brain using amplification. Cochlear implants help those with moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears who are not receiving enough benefit when using hearing aids. They are designed to help you get back the sounds you've been missing by giving you the clarity you need to hear better and understand speech, even in noisy situations.
"I received my Cochlear Implant and it's changed my life. I got myself back and my interaction with others. I wouldn't trade that for anything."
