Why do people get a cochlear implant?


Significant hearing loss can make people feel cut off from the hearing world. They miss the everyday sounds normal hearing people take for granted and can feel isolated and left out.

People get cochlear implants because they want to hear their best, be independent, and feel included. They want to take part in conversations, hear their children or grandchildren talk, listen to music, or simply enjoy the sounds of nature. They want to be confident that they can hear in all listening situations, even in noisy environments.

Parents choose cochlear implants for their children because they want them to hear the sounds of life. They want to provide their children with the opportunity to learn to listen, talk, and communicate freely and independently. They want their children to participate fully in the world of sounds that surrounds them.
