Experts in Cochlear Implant Surgery
Our surgeons are neurotologists, meaning they are board-certified in neurotology, which is the study and treatment of neurological ear disorders. Duke neurotologists performed some of the first cochlear implant surgeries in the United States, and our research has contributed to major advances that have resulted in superior care and outcomes.
No Upper Age Limit
Our neurotologists have performed this surgery on adults in their 90s. At Duke, there is no upper age limit for cochlear implants.
From the initial fitting and activation of your cochlear implant to the ongoing management of the device’s performance, our audiologists provide optimal, personalized care. Cochlear implants have excellent long-term success, and the technology continues to improve. Devices can be updated without additional surgery.
Expert Team Approach
Our patients and their families are at the center of our team. Our professional team members have had extensive training in cochlear implantation and continue to advance their knowledge through ongoing training and research.
