If you have single-sided deafness, conductive hearing loss, or mixed hearing loss, the Cochlear BAHA Bone Conduction Implant System may help you hear again and reconnect you to the people you love. Traditional hearing aids push sounds through the outer and middle ear, however the BAHA system uses your natural ability to conduct sound through bone vibrations. Bone conduction bypasses the damaged outer or middle ear and sends clearer, more crisp sound directly to your inner ear. At Quail Creek Ear, Nose, & Throat Center, our ENT physicians work closely with our audiologist to provide the BAHA Implant System. Our ENT physicians are trained and equipped to perform the BAHA Implant System surgery and our audiologist is trained in the candidacy selection and programming of the BAHA Implant System.
Cochlear implants are surgically implanted devices that are designed to mimic the function of a healthy inner ear (cochlea). The implant bypasses the part of the ear that is not working and sends sound straight to the hearing nerve.
Here at Quail Creek ENT we are proud to be part of the Cochlear Provider Network (CPN). As a CPN, your audiologist will be able to determine candidacy and refer to a CPN surgeon. Initial activation and additional programming will be done by your audiologist here at Quail Creek ENT. If you or a loved one suffer from a moderate to profound hearing loss and are receiving little benefit from hearing aids, give us a call today to be scheduled for an evaluation.
