Dedicated Audiologists Improving Your Quality of Life

San Antonio and Hill Country Cochlear Implant Fitting

Custom Hearing Devices for Patients of All Ages

If you have been diagnosed with hearing problems or hearing loss and are seeking a solution, our highly experienced audiologists in San Antonio and Hill Country can help. At Associates of Audiology, we have more than 30 years of combined medical experience. We don't believe in one-size-fits-all treatments. Instead, we work with our patients to determine what type of solution is most appropriate for your individual situation and degree of hearing loss.

One option we may recommend for those who are very hard of hearing or deaf is a cochlear implant. A cochlear implant is a tiny electronic device that is surgically implanted in the ear canal. This is a more permanent treatment than a hearing aid for patients with severe hearing disorders.

Who Is a Candidate for a Cochlear Implant?

There are many different candidates which are used to determine if one of our patients is an ideal candidate for a cochlear implant. One of our San Antonio and Hill Country audiologists will discuss your hearing history with you, including the degree of hearing loss, your age, and current physical health. Additionally, it is important that you understand the risks and have realistic expectations regarding what a cochlear implant does.

Candidates for cochlear implants will typically:

  • Have significant hearing loss in both ears
  • Maintain good communication and language skills
  • Have had trouble getting the results they need with a hearing aid
  • Have otherwise decent ear health that is not prone to infection

How Does a Cochlear Implant Work?

A cochlear implant is a device which is made up of several parts. While there are many different types of implants out there, each one is made with similar parts. One of these parts will be surgically implanted into the temporal bone. This part is made from a receiver-stimulator which works to decode and send electrical signals to the brain. The other part is the outside device, made from a receiver, antenna, and a speech processor. This outside device works to receive the sound and convert it into an electrical signal.
