We are the only practice in Western North Carolina with the expertise to perform cochlear implant surgery. For patients who are appropriate candidates, this incredible technology can restore hearing to normal levels. A cochlear implant bypasses the external ear and connects directly to the cochlear nerve. The process involves outpatient surgery to place the implant. The most important step is the rehabilitation after surgery. Once the device is activated, our audiologists work with patients to help them through the adjustment period. We have had great success, and patients who have not heard in years have had their hearing restored.
