Cochlear implants

Cochlear implants

Working closely with our Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeons, Neurosensory provides world-class standards in Cochlear implant procedures. Our caring staff will be there at every step in the process to ensure that your Neurosensory Cochlear implant experience is positive and supported.

What is different about the Neurosensory Cochlear implant process?

For over 35 years, we have witnessed the changing of many lives through our highly successful Cochlear implant programme. Our expert team, comprised of 33 aligned ENT surgeons, and highly qualified hearing health professionals, work closely to ensure that the transition to Cochlear implants is totally supported.

Our caring staff appreciate that the decision to proceed with a Cochlear implant is a personal one stemming from a fundamental desire to improve your quality of life, including the ability to take part in social activities. It can be very frustrating for family and friends having to shout and repeat themselves constantly to be heard by a hearing impaired person. Fundamentally, everyone deserves to be listened to and a hearing loss can be a huge barrier to conversation, often causing unnecessary strain and discord in a family unit . [1]

What Cochlear implants does Neurosensory provide?

At Neurosensory, we offer both Cochlear and Baha (Bone Anchored Hearing Aids) implants. Your Neurosensory hearing health care professional will thoroughly examine your individual hearing challenges and offer you expert advice on the most suitable implant for your personal hearing needs.

Can I benefit from Cochlear implants?

If you are suffering from a severe to profound hearing loss, and hearing aids alone are not adequate to meet your hearing needs, then the Neurosensory Cochlear implant process may well be the best option for you.

Even with the assistance of hearing aids, are you:

  • tending to avoid social situations?
  • asking people to repeat themselves, so you understand them?
  • needing subtitles to be able to watch TV?
  • relying on lip reading to participate in conversations?
  • having difficulty hearing on the phone?
  • finding it hard keeping up with interaction at work or in meetings?
  • feeling exhausted at the end of the day, after having to work so hard to follow conversations?

At Neurosensory, we can provide implants for people of all ages. In fact one of our clients received a Cochlear implant at age 90! Our dedicated Cochlear team will fully inform you whether a Cochlear implant is suitable for you. We want to empower you to make the best choice to suit your individual needs and lifestyle.
