  • 2. Cochlear Implant SurgerySafeMedTrip.comGet Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a QueryVisit us at: www.safemedtrip.comCochlear implant surgery lasts about two hours and isperformed while the patient is under general anesthesia.Some conditions that may affect the cochlea, such as cochlearossification (bony growth) or cochlear abnormalities maylengthen the time of surgery. Prior to surgery, a small portionof hair is shaved around the ear to be implanted. A small seatis created in the mastoid bone to hold the receiver/stimulatorand protect it. The surgeon drills through the mastoid boneto the inner ear. The electrode array is then inserted into thecochlea. The receiver/stimulator is secured to the skull, andthe incision is closed with stitches.A cochlear implant (CI) is a surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of soundto a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing or has not received any benefitfrom hearing aids. The cochlear implant is often referred to as a bionic ear.Typically, patients return home the day of surgery. Stitches dissolve without being removed.Patients return to school or work within a week of surgery. Activation of the implant takesplace two to four weeks after implantation, allowing enough time for the incision to healproperly.

SafeMedTrip.comGet Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a QueryVisit us at: www.safemedtrip.comCochlear implants have two parts-External (outside) parts that include a microphone, a speech processor, and atransmitter.Internal (surgically implanted) parts - a receiver-stimulating system fixed to theskull bone behind the ear and electrodes which are inserted into the cochlea.It is important to note that a cochlear implant does not restore normal hearing. Instead, itprovides a deaf person with a useful representation of sounds in the environment to helphim or her understand them.
  • 4. SafeMedTrip.comGet Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a QueryVisit us at: www.safemedtrip.comHow does a Cochlear Implant Work?Cochlear implants bypass damaged portions of the ear anddirectly stimulate the auditory nerve. Signals generated by theimplant are sent by way of the auditory nerve to the brain,which recognizes the signals as sound. Hearing through acochlear implant is different from normal hearing and takestime to learn or relearn. However, it allows many people torecognize warning signals, understand other sounds in theenvironment, and go to a regular school and enjoy aconversation in person or by telephone.Comprehensive Cochlear Implantation Program at SafeMedTrip affiliated Indian Hospitals andhave highly specialized and fully trained multidisciplinary team of medical professionals whichconsists of:1.

Get Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a QueryVisit us at: www.safemedtrip.comSafeMedTrip.com• There are various factors that need to be taken into consideration prior tocochlear implantation. Patients who may be candidates for cochlearimplantation would have met with their audiologist and ENT(Hearingimplant) Surgeon and the team would decide the best option for thecandidate.• Audiological assessment and trial with hearing aids. To assess the severityof the hearing loss, level of speech and language.• CT and MRI Imaging - Complete scanning would be done of the ears andbrain. We need to see the structure of the ears and the condition of theinner ear and hearing nerves.Medical Check up including preoperative blood tests.• Patients would also be seen by a physician or paediatrician (in the cases ofchildren) and vaccinated to reduce the risk of infections.Before the Cochlear Implant Surgery
  • 6. Cochlear Implant Surgery• Cochlear Implant SurgeryCochlear implant surgery lasts about two hours and is performedwhile the patient is under general anaesthesia. The electrode array isinserted into the cochlea. The receiver/stimulator is secured to theskull. Typically, patients remain in the hospital for two nights. Theyhave a bandage on their head which is removed after four days.Patients return to school or work as soon as they feel well enough todo so, usually within a week of surgery.• Switching on the implantActivation of the implant takes place two to three weeks afterimplantation, allowing enough time for the incision to heal properly.Following this the implant is programmed or mapped. Mapping isdone on a regular basis during postoperative rehabilitation to fine-tune the processor and get the best performance as the patient getsused to hearing with the implant.SafeMedTrip.com
