When Your Hearing Aid Isn’t Enough, Consider Cochlear Implants
It used to be that Cochlear implants were only for people suffering from total hearing loss. Not any more.
If your hearing aid is not providing enough sound, an implantable device may be an option. Cochlear implants are now available to more and more hearing impaired patients. You don’t have to be totally deaf to qualify for a Cochlear implant. For many patients, Cochlear implants work much better than regular hearing aids.
Cochear implants, once used strictly in cases of total hearing loss, are now being implanted in patients who still have some hearing left. CNC Hearing and Balance Center Neurotologist Moises Arriaga discussed cochlear implants as a hearing option to patients in this video.
