Hearing implants are an option when conventional hearing aids are not able to give sufficient benefit. Below are the four types of implants we offer at CUH:

The type of implant needed depends on the type and level of hearing loss.  If the problem is a poor sound conduction in the outer or middle ear, you may be considered for a Bone Conduction Implant or a Middle Ear Implant (MEI). If the problem is in the cochlea, you may benefit from a cochlear implant (CI).  Alternatively, for poor hearing nerve function, you may be considered for an auditory brainstem implant (ABI). It is important to discuss with your audiologist what your own level of hearing is and which type of hearing aid or hearing implant might benefit you.
