For people with hearing loss caused by severe damage to the ear canal, the ear drum, the middle ear bones or the inner ear, implantable hearing devices can provide significant hearing improvement.A surgical implant is very different from a hearing aid. Hearing aids amplify sound. Implants compensate for damaged or non-working parts of the middle or inner ear, and can help individuals who are not candidates for traditional hearing aids.
At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, several types of implantable hearing devices are offered:
The Department of Otolaryngology at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center has the expertise and technology to implant all of these devices. To make an appointment with a Lahey Otolaryngologist, please call 781-744-8467.
