About Cochlear Implants
A cochlear implant is an electronic device that is surgically implanted and works by directly stimulating functioning auditory nerve fibers in the inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, cochlear implants do not amplify sound, but instead are designed to mirror natural hearing. Cochlear implants convert sound waves to electrical impulses and transmit them to the inner ear, providing people with severe-to-profound hearing loss the ability to identify sounds in their environment and often to understand speech without reading lips. The cochlear implant is recognized as a standard treatment for profound deafness by the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery.
