Cochlear Implants: An Option for Optimal Hearing

Professional Hearing Management provides a wide range of solutions for individuals with hearing loss, including cochlear implants. For individuals with severe to profound hearing loss, cochlear implants can be life-changing. Our team of experienced audiologists works closely with patients to determine if a cochlear implant is the right solution for their hearing needs. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care and support to our patients on their journey to better hearing.

About Cochlear Implants

A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted neuroprosthesis that provides a person who has moderate-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss with sound perception. With the help of aural therapy, cochlear implants may allow for improved speech understanding in both quiet and noisy environments. These devices are designed to take over the function of the damaged inner ear by directly stimulating the auditory nerve. For people with profound hearing loss that can’t be adequately addressed with traditional hearing aids, cochlear implants can provide the sensation of sound and significantly improve their quality of life.

How Cochlear Implants Differ From Hearing Aids

While hearing aids amplify sound and work with the hair cells in the inner ear, cochlear implants bypass the hair cells entirely to directly stimulate the hearing nerve. As a result, cochlear implants can be a viable option for those with severe to profound hearing loss that cannot be adequately addressed with hearing aids. By understanding the differences between these two options, you can make an informed decision about which treatment may be right for you.

Are Cochlear Implants Right for You?

While modern hearing aids can improve many types of hearing loss, cochlear implants may be a better option for individuals with more severe hearing difficulties. If you’re experiencing moderate to profound hearing loss and poor word recognition abilities, an audiologist at our clinic can perform an extensive auditory evaluation to determine if you’re a potential candidate. If you are, they will collaborate with an otologist, a physician who specializes in ears, to evaluate if you meet specific health and medical requirements for cochlear implant surgery.

At Professional Hearing Management, we offer comprehensive hearing evaluations to detect any potential hearing loss early on. By addressing hearing loss early, we can help support your overall wellness and improve your quality of life with technology such as hearing aids or cochlear implants. Don’t wait to take control of your hearing health, contact us today to schedule your evaluation.

“I had a great experience here and I have a home for my lifelong hearing management. I’m fairly young - in my 40’s, so I was surprised to have my hearing loss confirmed. It couldn’t have been a better experience though. They really helped me understand the clinical reasons - like preventing cognitive decline - and helped me get used to a whole new world where I hear sounds like crinkling paper and running water that I had no idea I was missing!”

“Dr. Rauch and her staff are by far the most compassionate folks I have ever met. They went above and beyond to make sure that my young daughter had exactly what she needed to be able to hear properly again. You can honestly tell that it is their passion to help people hear the world around them. Dr. Rauch and her staff make you feel like family instead of just a number like so many doctors do these days. To hear my daughter sing to herself again is beyond priceless. Thank you.”
