Patients suffering from hearing loss may need cochlear implantation, a procedure used to implant a medical device to improve the function of the damaged inner ear. The device should, however, not be confused with hearing aids since the cochlear implant procedure replaces functions of the ruptured inner ear.
Damage to the hair cells of the inner ear disturbs hearing abilities, which is corrected by cochlear implantation process to enable sound to get transferred smoothly to the hearing nerve. The benefits of the process entail improved hearing abilities, 80 percent of better sentence understanding, enhanced focus in any noisy environment, easier conversations with people sitting at far ends of meeting tables, better conversation over the phone and listening to music.
The implant functions by converting digitally-coded sound into numerous electrical impulses. The electrodes used in the implant help to stimulate the cochlea’s hearing nerve, thus repairing sound efficiency.
Cochlear Implant cost, including post-operative rehabilitation process may vary depending upon the extent and duration of the patient’s hearing loss.
