Cochlear Implants

Cochlear Implantation - The implant is placed behind and above the ear and secured. A mastoidectomy is needed for access to the inner ear. An opening in the cochlea (called a cochleostomy) is created and the electrode is inserted into the cochlea. View the animation to the right to learn more about how we hear and the implant surgery.
