A cochlear implant is a device used to partially restore hearing in people suffering from severe or partial hearing loss. Unlike hearing aids that amplify sound, a cochlear implant consists of two parts- one fitting outside, behind the ear and another surgically bypassing the damaged portions of the ear to enhance the hearing experience. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and a medical evaluation is done to determine whether you are a right candidate or not. To give the surgery site adequate time to heal, the cochlear implants aren’t turned on until two to six weeks.
