A Cochlear Implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that helps provide hearing to a person with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. This sensorineural hearing loss is caused by damage or a defect in the inner ear. Cochlear implants bypass damaged cells (hair cells) in the inner ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve to send information to the brain. Also known as Bionic Ear, the implant comprises of two parts: an external portion that sits behind the ear and the internal portion which is surgically planted under the skin. Since there are varieties of implants available in the market ranging from 15000$ to 30000$, you must lookout for the doctor who has an expertise in the matter and has implanted a considerable number in the past.
