Implantable Hearing Device
Implantable Hearing Devices
Indications for Surgery
Sensorineural Hearing Loss (Nerve Deafness)
General or local depending on the device
A mastoidectomy is performed in order to attach the portion of the implantable hearing device to the middle ear bone structures. These devices transmit sound energy to the inner ear by coupling devices to the middle ear bones.
Implantable hearing devices are used for patients who can use a hearing aid in place of the hearing aid. Patients experience clearer sound with an open ear canal.
