Clinical Services at Rush Cochlear Implant Program
Program Description

More than 2 million people in the United States have profound hearing loss. Most profoundly hearing-impaired people do not benefit from traditional hearing aids, but cochlear implants may provide them with an alternative to deafness.


Services Provided

The Ruch Cochlear Implant program uses state-of-the-art technology to treat severe-to-profoundly hearing-impaired patients.


Clinical Team

The Rush Cochlear Implant Program is a joint venture of the Department of Otolaryngology and the Section of Communicative Disorders and Sciences. The team includes medical specialists and audiologists, all of whom hold master's or doctoral degrees and certificates of competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
