If hearing aids aren’t helping as much as they used to, it’s time you discovered hearing implants. They can make a noticeable difference to how you experience sound, so you can focus less on your hearing and more on enjoying the moment.
Even with hearing aids, you or someone you love may not be hearing everything. Cochlear™ hearing implants work differently from hearing aids. They are a proven solution designed to make sounds louder and clearer, helping you get back the sounds you’ve been missing.
If you or a loved one are struggling to hear, even when using powerful hearing aids, and are unable to understand what is being said, a cochlear implant may be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
The first sound I heard was my wife’s voice. I could hear again, and I was so overwhelmed. Now I’m the person I was all those years ago. It’s a life-changer. It’s amazing that a piece of technology can do that.

Cochlear implants may be a solution if your hearing aids are not helping you understand sounds and speech. They are designed to provide you or a loved one with the clarity of sound and speech that may be missing.
Cochlear implants can help people with severe to profound hearing loss, who do not receive enough benefit when using hearing aids.
For some people, using a hearing aid with a severe to profound hearing loss can be like listening to a loud, badly tuned radio. You may hear parts of what is being said and it may be loud enough, but the words are not clear.
Note: Wearing hearing aids first is a necessary step in the evaluation process for a cochlear implant.

Cochlear implants are designed to mimic the function of a healthy inner ear, called the cochlea. They replace the function of damaged sensory hair cells inside the cochlea to provide clearer sound than is achievable with hearing aids.
Cochlear implants can seem like a miracle because they provide access to sounds that previously you could no longer hear.
