Cochlear implants are surgically implanted medical devices that replace the function of the inner ear (cochlea) and are designed to mimic natural hearing. A cochlear implant is a good next step to explore if you have sensorineural hearing loss in one or both ears, your hearing aids are no longer helping or if a crucial part of your inner-ear isn’t working properly.

Hearing aids are small electronic devices that capture sound and make it louder. They are typically a solution for those who have mild to severe hearing loss and have some remaining healthy sensory hair cells in the inner ear (cochlea) that can transmit sound to the brain using amplification. However, as hearing loss progresses, it may still be difficult to hear speech and understand conversations even when using powerful hearing aids.
