Cochlear Implants -Then and Now

It was 50 years ago when the Cochlear Implant first opened the world of hearing to patients with severe hearing loss. CNC Hearing and Balance Center Neurotologist Moises Arriaga was a student of Dr. William House, the physician who developed the Cochlear Implant.  House is considered the father of the Cochlear Implant.

Dr. Arriaga has watched the use of the Cochlear Implant evolve from an implanted device reserved for the deaf to an option for patients whose hearing aids are no longer  meeting their hearing needs . In the video below, Dr. Arriaga explains how the Cochlear Implant has evolved with modern technology. If you are suffering from severe hearing loss and find that your hearing aids are just not working for you like you need them to, call CNC Hearing and Balance Center for an appointment.
