Your journey to better hearing is always evolving. As you reach new milestones and discover new benefits, you can be sure that Advanced Bionics will be by your side for it all. Our hearing specialists are available to answer any of your questions and guide you through the next steps and beyond.
 

I’ve had my implant surgery, now what?

Before the surgery you did your homework, you researched and asked questions. Now that you feel confident with your decision, there’s still a little more work to be done. Hearing your best is a skill. It will require training and practice to truly learn how to make the most of your implant. We have programs specifically targeted for any and all age groups in our rehAB center. 

“What I value most about having AB as a partner on my journey to hearing is that information is always available – as well as help.”

— Judi Axel, implanted at age 60, bilaterally implanted at age 61
