From Evaluation to Activation
Potential candidates for cochlear implantation undergo a complete audiological evaluation to confirm hearing loss.
All cochlear implant candidates must have worn hearing aids for at least 6 months prior to the evaluation. Aided testing is performed using the candidates hearing aids to determine benefit from amplification. The specially trained audiologists at BHSC will provide cochlear implant candidates with information regarding the implant equipment.
Cochlear implant candidates are referred to an Ear, Nose and Throat physician to discuss surgical consideration for cochlear implantation. An MRI or CT scan will be ordered as part of the evaluation. The cochlear implant surgeon will discuss the surgery and post-operative recovery period.
