When Hearing Aids Are Not Enough
When a hearing aid no longer provides sufficient amplification for a patient’s communication needs, a specialty listening device may be the answer. Our surgeons are uniquely qualified to perform implant surgeries aimed at improving quality of life through better hearing..
Bone Anchored Hearing Aid
The Baha Auditory Osseointegrated Implant System is an alternative hearing instrument for those who can benefit and when there is no other suitable aid. The device, originally called the Bone Anchored Hearing Aid, is implanted in the temporal bone behind the ear and actually fuses (osseointegrates) with human bone behind the ear to provide transmission of sound via direct bone conduction. The Baha implant has been used successfully for more than 30 years and has become a treatment of choice for tens of thousands of hearing impaired people worldwide, and the numbers of Baha users are increasing rapidly.
Cochlear Implant Evaluations and Programming
A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electrode with a small complex behind the ear called a speech processor. It is designed to help patients with severe to profound hearing loss who no longer benefit from conventional hearing aids. Learn more about Wichita Ear Clinic cochlear implants by clicking here.
