  • Auditory Osseointegrated Implant (AOI)

    Auditory osseointegrated implant (AOI), also known as Baha, is a device that bypasses an unhealthy or abnormally functioning middle ear to deliver direct acoustic stimulation to the inner ear.
  • Cochlear Implant

    Cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that can restore partial hearing to individuals who are profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing. A cochlear implant bypasses many of the typical ear functions and applies direct electrical stimulation to the auditory nerve.
  • Hearing Aids

    Hearing aids are electronic devices worn in or behind the ear to help make sounds louder. Hearing aids are one treatment option for hearing loss or impairment. There are several types of hearing aids, including behind-the-ear, in-the-ear and canal (that fit in the ear canal). Audiologists work with patients to decide what style and technology fits their specific needs. Because hearing loss can affect the quality of life of family members and friends, audiologists at Rush encourage their participation during this process.
  • Speech Therapy

    Speech therapy is a treatment for people who have trouble speaking or swallowing normally because of disease, deformity or disability. Speech-language pathologists offer speech therapy to children and adults with dysphagia, autism, cleft palate and a variety of neurological disorders, among other conditions.
