Hendrick Health offers cochlear implant procedure

Hearing loss can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life, affecting the ability to communicate, socialize and perform daily activities. For those with severe hearing loss, Hendrick Health offers cochlear implants.

After an otorhinolaryngologist determines if an individual meets the criteria, the patient will undergo a surgical procedure to implant electronic devices in the inner ear to stimulate the auditory nerve, providing a sense of sound that closely resembles natural hearing. This procedure can be life-changing, enabling an individual to hear again and reconnect with the world around them.

"As a physician, performing cochlear implant surgery is an incredibly rewarding experience," said Dr. Jaxon Jordan, otorhinolaryngologist with Hendrick Clinic. "It's amazing to see the transformation in patients when they first hear sounds they haven't heard in years, and to know that we’ve played a role in helping them regain their sense of hearing."

Cochlear implants are ideal for those who are unable to hear, even with the assistance of hearing aids.

Anyone experiencing hearing loss should talk with their healthcare provider about testing.
