Cochlear Implant Center in Amritsar
While conventional hearing aid amplification is a popular option among children suffering from hearing impairment, the solution is limited in its scope. Those suffering from severe or profound hearing loss require a more powerful tool to understand language and communicate effectively.
How does a cochlear device work?
A cochlear is a small device that is surgically placed in the inner ear to electronically stimulate the auditory nerve. Since the device bypasses the damaged part of the hearing system, it is able to kindle the auditory nerve directly. A cochlear device comes in two parts – a surgically implanted part and a part that is worn externally.
At Listening Ears cochlear implant center in Amritsar, our state-of-the-art devices allow children with hearing loss to not only hear better in noisy environments but also enjoy music or swim without having to worry about the processor inside their ear.
