Cochlear Implant Program

If you have major hearing loss and haven’t benefited from a traditional hearing aid, specialists with the Rush Cochlear Implant Program may be able to help.

Program experts treat severely to profoundly hearing-impaired patients by surgically implanting a small electronic device. It works by stimulating the auditory nerve in the inner ear.

The Rush Cochlear Implant Program is a joint venture of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the Section of Communicative Disorders. The team includes medical specialists and audiologists.
