Cochlear Implantationand BAHA Surgeries
A COCHLEAR IMPLANT (CI) is a surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing.
Cochlear Implants may help provide hearing in patients who are deaf because of damage to sensory hair cells in their cochlea. In these patients, the implants often can enable sufficient hearing for better understanding of speech. The quality of sound is different from natural hearing, with less sound information being received and processed by the brain. However, many patients are able to hear and understand speech and environmental sounds. Newer devices and processing-strategies allow recipients to hear better, enjoy music, and even use their implant processors while swimming.
Columbia Asia Hospitals across India has been conducting COHCLEAR IMPLANTS and BAHA (BONE ANCHORED HEARING AID) very successfully. The hospitals aim at providing the highest level of diagnostic, surgical and rehabilitation services.
