Cochlear Implants

Cochlear Implant

As we know, hearing loss varies in degrees of severity. For an individual with profound hearing loss, daily communication can be frustrating and impossible. Helen Keller was once quoted saying, "Blindness separates people from things; deafness separates people from people." This is exactly the obstacle we face quite often with our young and elderly patients. Fortunately with technology advancements, cochlear implants are a brilliant option for those who meet the candidacy guidelines.

A child as young as 12 months of age can be approved for a cochlear implant, as well as adults. At this time, 188,000 people have received a cochlear implant worldwide. At Bridgewater Balance & Hearing we provide cochlear implant evaluations to determine if our patients qualify for approval. The purpose of the evaluation is to quantify the individual's preoperative hearing thresholds, communicative status, and use of previous hearing amplification.
