  • 3. A cochlear implant is asurgically implanted prosthesisthat can restore some hearingto those with profound hearing loss or deafness.
  • 4. Individuals who have inner ear hearing loss, called sensorineural, that cannot benefit from traditional hearing aids may be a candidate for implantation.
