About Cochlear Implants
Cochlear implants are a proven medical option for children as young as 12 months old with profound hearing loss in both ears and for individuals who are two years or older with severe-to-profound hearing loss in both ears whom obtain little or no benefit from hearing aids. They are electronic devices, which bypass damaged hair cells in the inner ear, or cochlea, and stimulate the hearing nerve directly.

About Bone Anchored Hearing Solutions 
Bone anchored hearing solutions are a proven medical option for adults and children with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, and single-sided sensorineural deafness meeting the candidacy criteria. They are designed to provide audibility and to improve the communication abilities of those who receive little or no benefit from hearing aids. The Baha® System sends external sounds to the inner ear through the bone by passing the outer and middle ear.
