ENT specialists might advise Cochlear Implants Treatment when a patient has a severe hearing loss primarily due to problems in the inner ear called cochlea. In this case using conventional hearing aids will be of no use. Because of the damaged cochlea which is the sensory region that transmits outside signals to the brain, there is data loss on the way. So, traditional hearing aids that jut amplifies the sounds will be of no help. Instead, cochlear hearing aid behaves like the cochlea. The electronic wearable device mimics the functionality of the damaged inner ear and sends the signals to the brain for processing and reacting based on the input. The device will be implanted through a surgical procedure known as mastoidectomy while the patient is sedated under general anaesthesia so there will be no pain or discomfort involved. Once the surgery is over there will be a drastic improvement in hearing and comprehending. The patient will be able to hear clearly in a noisy environment as well. This means they will be able to lead a normal life, be independent and move about on their own on roads safely and even listen to music. The cochlear implant cost might be higher than regular hearing aids but it is the best option for individuals who have almost totally lost the hearing ability. Few of the more popular and approved hearing aid brands in the cochlear implant segment are by Cochlear Limited, Advanced Bionics and MED-EL.
