Are Cochlear Implants Right For Me?

Making life-changing connections.

Hearing loss is caused when sound is no longer transmitted fully to the hearing nerve and brain. In cases where the amplifi cation provided by hearing aids isn’t enough, a cochlear implant is the standard treatment.

For those with severe-to-profound, or advanced hearing loss, making the decision to get a cochlear implant can be truly life-changing. This decision starts with understanding how cochlear implants can help.

At Advanced Bionics, we see the large number of people with hearing loss as an inspirational challenge—it’s not a statistic, it’s millions of individuals that we can help connect with their world.

Are you a candidate for a cochlear implant?

Some hearing aid wearers may be a candidate for a cochlear implant if any of the following apply:

“I still have difficulty following conversations without lip reading.”

“I hear pretty well in quiet environments, but still struggle in noisy environments or when in a group.”

“I still cannot follow most telephone conversations, especially if I don’t know the person calling.”

“I still feel isolated and limited, both socially and occupationally, because of my hearing loss.”
