Services

Northwestern Medicine offers comprehensive evaluations for adults who may benefit from cochlear implants. If you have severe hearing loss that can’t be corrected with hearing aids, a cochlear implant may be the answer. A cochlear implant is a medical device that bypasses damaged structures in the inner ear and directly stimulates the auditory nerve to the brain, which translates the signals into sound.
