A Cochlear Implant is the insertion of a tiny device inside the ear to help with better hearing. Cochlear Implants are only approved for people who are deaf in both the ears. A Cochlear Implant is very different from a hearing aid. It amplifies sound, so the damaged ears may detect them. With, Cochlear Implant bypasses the damaged portions of the ear and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. The Cochlear Implant Treatment requires a surgical procedure and therapy later on to learn the sense of hearing. Cochlear Implantation Surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately one to two hours. An ENT specialist makes an incision behind the ear and operates with the aid of microscope by drilling away a portion of the mastoid bone to gain access to the inner ear. As with any medical procedure, the results of Cochlear Implant cannot be predicted prior to the surgery and the patient may experience a wide range of outcomes. As a Cochlear Implant is a lifetime commitment and demands proper care, a patient is expected to return to the center for a number of follow-up services. There are many hospitals and private clinics that specialize in cochlear implants. It will however, take some time for the patients to get used to the device and get improved hearing.
