Hearing aids that amplify sound are not useful for these people. For such special cases, cochlear implants, also called bionic ears, should be used.

Treatment Content

Cochlear Implant

Responsible for balance and hearing, the ear is an extremely sensitive organ. With a hearing range of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz, it can distinguish between loudness differences of less than 1 decibel and frequency differences of much less than 1%. However, sometimes there are congenital hearing problems, and sometimes hearing gradually decreases due to different factors such as age progression and diseases. In such cases, hearing aids help people to continue communicating with their surroundings. People with severe and profound hearing loss can hear almost no sound or only very loud sounds.

Cochlear Implant Treatment Techniques

The most common Cochlear Implant procedures;
A unilateral cochlear implant is an implant placed in only one ear. This method is suitable for patients with unilateral hearing loss. In patients whose other ear has normal hearing, a unilateral cochlear implant can improve hearing skills and significantly improve hearing health.
Bilateral cochlear implants are implants placed in both ears. This method is suitable for patients with severe hearing loss affecting both ears. A bilateral cochlear implant can further improve the patient's hearing performance and help them better perceive the direction and source of hearing sounds.

Frequently Asked Questions

A cochlear implant is a medical device used to restore hearing to people with hearing loss. By making direct contact with the auditory nerves in the inner ear, it converts sounds into electrical signals and transmits them to the brain.
Cochlear implants can be applied to people with severe hearing loss and who do not get sufficient results from other hearing treatments. It is a suitable option especially for people who have problems in the inner ear and do not get enough benefit from hearing aids.
The cochlear implant converts external sounds into digital signals with an external sound processor and microphone. These signals are sent to the auditory nerves and transmitted to the brain via an array of electrodes placed on the inside.
Cochlear implant surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, so patients do not feel pain or discomfort during the operation. There may be mild pain and swelling after surgery, but this is controlled with painkillers.
The cochlear implant operation usually takes between 1 and 2 hours. The duration may vary depending on the patient’s condition and the surgeon’s experience.
Hearing may not return immediately after a cochlear implant. Patients may see an improvement in their hearing ability once they start using the device and get used to it over time. Hearing abilities may vary depending on the patient’s personal situation and adaptation to the process.
