Cochlear implants represent the single biggest leap in technology where the sense of hearing is restored by a bionic solution. This term implies an external artificial device which restores normal biological function of the sense of hearing. The ENT surgeon is extremely fortunate to be at the center of this revolution.
Children who are born deaf can now have their hearing restored by timely insertion of a cochlear implant into the organ for hearing, the cochlear. Children need to have the device implanted before the age of 4. The reason for this is that the center for hearing and language development in the brain shrinks after the age of 4. Therefore it is important to do this at the very earliest. Most children who are born deaf and have a cochlear implant inserted can soon attend school. This itself represents a revolution compared to the past where these children were isolated. When children with impaired hearing, have cochlear implants inserted in both ears the results are even more spectacular.
Can adults also benefit from cochlear implants? Yes they can.
Adults usually have acquired speech and language skills and so rehabilitation of such adults is much easier. Cochlear Implants can be inserted in those adults who are deaf on one side.
Therefore cochlear implants benefit both children and adults.
