What is a Cochlear Implant?
A cochlear implant is a device for people with severe-profound
hearing loss in both ears. It is surgically inserted in the
inner ear. While a hearing aid amplifies sound to make it
more audible to the damaged portion of the ear, a cochlear implant
directly stimulates the auditory nerve, bypassing the damaged
portion of the ear.
