Cochlear implants, commonly referred to as a “bionic ear” provide direct electrical stimulation to the hearing nerves.
Cochlear implants have significantly transformed the lives of countless families with children born deaf. These deaf children can now hear. No longer are parents told that their child cannot develop speech and language skills. In fact, many of these children have gone on to outperform their normal hearing peers in mainstream education and contribute significantly in society. Many adults with severe hearing loss have also been implanted and been able to return to their active busy independent lifestyles.
