The Cochlear Implant Program at Cincinnati Children’s is the world wide leader in treating severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss (nerve deafness) through early intervention and comprehensive care for infants, children and adolescents, along with their families. Our experts follow over 630 cochlear implant patients each year, with between 60 and 80 new patients added annually.
With cochlear implants, we may be able to provide your child with functional hearing levels by implanting a device into the inner ear. It is important to understand that not all children with severe to profound hearing loss will be candidates to receive cochlear implants. We work closely with you to determine what treatment meets your child’s unique needs and your family’s communication preferences.
If our evaluation indicates that your child will not benefit from hearing aids, cochlear implantation may be a preferred treatment option.
