We understand it’s a big decision to undergo hearing implant surgery. Our experienced Audiology team provide support to guide you through the pre- and post-implant journey. They will continue to work with you once you receive your hearing implant.
A unique feature of Hear and Say’s Hearing Implant program is our Auditory Learning sessions. They focus on your hearing and listening skills using your cochlear implant, with the aim of gaining the most out of your hearing device and achieving your hearing and communication potential.
There are three types of implantable devices. The team at Hear and Say can help you work out what will be most beneficial for you. These devices include:
- Cochlear Implants: For some people affected by hearing loss, hearing aids are no longer the solution and can sound like listening to an out of tune radio. For this group of people, hearing aids can make sounds louder, but they cannot make the words clearer. This is where cochlear implants may be an option.
- Bone Anchored Hearing Aids: In some cases, traditional hearing aids and Cochlear Implants may not be a suitable rehabilitation option. For some individuals with chronic middle ear infections, physical ear abnormalities or disarticulation of the bones in their middle ear, a bone conduction hearing device may be recommended.
- Middle Ear implants: Middle ear implants may be suitable for mixed, conductive or sensorineural hearing loss and offers an alternative to traditional hearing aids.
