A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted prosthetic device that can improve your hearing. These devices are best suited for people with significant hearing loss in one or both ears who find it difficult to communicate, even with hearing aids. Almost all cochlear implant recipients enjoy significant long-term improvements in both their hearing and their ability to communicate, with minimal -- if any -- complications.
