Overview

A Cochlear implant is an electronic device that electrically stimulates the cochlear nerve (nerve for hearing).

A cochlear implant can be an option for people who have severe hearing loss from inner-ear damage, who are no longer helped by using hearing aids. Cochlear implants can improve their communication (understand speech or spoken language) and quality of life.

Cochlear implants use a sound processor behind the ear. The processor captures sound signals and sends them to a receiver implanted under the skin behind the ear. The receiver sends the signal to electrodes implanted in the snail-shaped inner ear (cochlea).

Unilateral Cochlear implant- Cochlear implant placed in one ear.

Bilateral Cochlear implant- Cochlear implant placed in both the ears to treat bilateral severe hearing loss (particularly for infants and children who are learning to speak and process language).

Symptoms

The patient may need Cochlear implant surgery due to following reasons:

  • Hearing loss that is so severe, which interrupts spoken communication
  • Limited benefits from hearing aids as determined by specialized hearing tests.
  • Miss half or more of spoken words, without lip reading, even when wearing hearing aids.
  • Rely heavily on lip-reading, despite wearing hearing aids.
