Hearing Implants Video

A cochlear implant is a small, complex electronic device that can help to provide a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard-of-hearing. The implant consists of an external portion that sits behind the ear and a second portion that is surgically placed under the skin

An implant has the following parts:

A microphone, which picks up sound from the environment.
A speech processor, which selects and arranges sounds picked up by the microphone.
A transmitter and receiver/stimulator, which receive signals from the speech processor and convert them into electric impulses.
An electrode array, which is a group of electrodes that collects the impulses from the stimulator and sends them to different regions of the auditory nerve.

The right hearing aids are an important investment in your quality of life. We can guide you through the hearing aid selection and buying process.

All behind-the-ear hearing aids have a microphone, amplifiers and processors, a volume control, a tone hook, an ear mold, an on/off switch, and a battery compartment. Sound enters the microphone, is amplified and shaped by the processor, and is directed out the tone hook and through the earmold into your child’s ear. The earmold is specifically molded to the shape of your child’s ear. Earmolds need to be replaced fairly often as your child’s ear grows.
