If you have hearing loss that cannot be adequately addressed with hearing aids and that interferes with daily activities, you may be a candidate for a cochlear implant. Rapid improvements in technology and expanded criteria have greatly increased the range of people who may be eligible.

We use a team approach to evaluate people for cochlear implant candidacy and throughout the implant process. Our team of neurotologists, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, nurses, social workers, and others work together to improve your hearing and daily communication experience.
