When to consider hearing implants for adults

Do you find you’re missing out on life because you struggle to hear, even when wearing powerful hearing aids? A hearing implant could help.


Do you have difficulty hearing on the phone or understanding conversations? Perhaps you prefer not to participate in the activities you once enjoyed because of your hearing loss?

If hearing aids are no longer helping you, or you have stopped wearing them altogether, a hearing implant may be able to help. It is a proven solution for hearing loss in adults. Whether you lost your hearing suddenly or gradually over time, a hearing implant can help you reconnect to the people and activities you love.
