Cochlear Implant Surgery/Hearing Aids
What is a cochlear implant?
A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that replaces the function of the damaged inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, which make sounds louder, cochlear implants bypass the damaged hair cells of the inner ear (cochlea) to provide sound signals to the brain.
Many people have cochlear devices in both ears (bilateral) said Dr Priyanjana Acharyya. Listening with two ears can improve your ability to identify the direction of sound and separate the sounds you want to hear from those you don’t.
Dr. Priyanajana Acharyya is one of the Best ENT Specialists in India for treating hearing loss at GNH Hospital Gurgaon India.
