AN EFFECTIVE SOLUTION
Totally implanted hearing systems have enabled us to provide a new treatment modality for a population of patients who simply have not been satisfied with hearing aids and may not be candidates for other devices or procedures. Moreover, these are people who are frustrated with the status quo of hearing loss options and want an invisible hearing option that can restore their independence, confidence, and overall lifestyle.
CHANGING LIVES BEYOND THE AUDIOGRAM
The lifestyle benefits of a totally implanted hearing system are profound, allowing people with moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss to not merely hear their lives, but to live them. With a fully implanted hearing system, patients can exercise, swim, sleep, and live normally without having to concern themselves with putting the device in, taking it out, changing batteries, worrying about its visibility, or otherwise thinking about their hearing device in any way. Many patients have also stated that they feel safer because they can leave it on 24/7.

EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO LIVE LIKE NEVER BEFORE
There is no doubt that many patients are baby boomers and matures who value the ability to remain active and independent and don’t want the stigma of wearing a hearing aid. However, a fully implanted hearing system also gives us the ability to provide many younger patients with a level of confidence and empowerment that they have previously never known.
We regularly see a remarkable increase in patients’ confidence, self esteem, and willingness to engage in situations they once avoided. It’s common for us to hear them say, “I feel like a different person.” While not a measurable medical outcome, the differences are as noticeable as they are personally rewarding.
