I am sorry you had that experience @segoro72.  I hope you find another center.  In the US, audiologists recommend hearing aids (sometimes in consultation with ENT doctors).

@Mary Beth - he said it was good, a huge improvement over hearing aids, which of course it would be given a conductive loss.  He is trying to get his insurance to pay for it.  They refused him the BAHA that he qualified for last year, so I don't know, but I hope he'll decide to buy it himself if the insurance won't pay.

Has he looked into the newly FDA approved BoneBridge implant from Med-El ?  A friend has two and loves them.  They have been available in other countries for many years but just received FDA approval in the US in 2018.

Yes, but he was turned down for the implant.  His insurance sounds pretty bad.  Possibly the problem is that he's only deaf in one ear so they assume he can get by, but he's a teacher and really wants to be able to hear better.

There are some clinical studies about cochlear implants for single sided deafness.  Sometimes people are able to participate in clinical studies to get what insurance denies.  Sorry it has been so difficult for your cousin.

Would they normally implant a cochlear implant for conductive loss?  I don't see why it wouldn't work, but then why are there things like Bonebridge?  Seems as though there's some overlap in what device will help.

No.  That was my mistake.  I saw “deaf in one ear”  and thought of a deaf side (sensorineural deafness).  Sorry.

Condictive losses tend to use:

ADHEAR

BONEBRIDGE

SOUNDBRIDGE

Interesting, thanks.  My audiologist told me once that they can tell what kind of loss you have by your test results, but I hadn't seen the detail.

Our audiologists are wealths of knowledge.  I would not be where I am today without the skill, dedication and caring of my awesome audiologist.  I am so thankful.

I am actually doing this for my sister who lives in Houston.  Went to website and saw only organizations and places for children.  She uses headphones for i phone/music but really needs  for conversation/business  events etc... she will not do an implant so the ADHEAR seems perfect.  Can she have it ordered from any Hearing or ENT place?   Can she buy direct from the company or another supplier online?  We tried to leave with the company website but would not take her email as like me she is using  our old emails that we have had for decades, Thanks all!

Hello and welcome.

 

ADHEAR is a type of bone conduction hearing aid and is fitted by audiologists.  There is a clinic finder on the Med-El website.  I’ll post a link for you.

Yes. But all clinics listed are pediatric at Texas children’s or Baylor college if medicine.  No adult places listed.

I have had single sided deafness (left) and moderate hearing loss (right).  Would adhear work?  How much are they for one aid verse two?  How do you find a provider ?

On the Med-El website you can find clinic finder.  Select ADHEAR and your state to see providers near you.  Or you can contact Med-El US via phone or email.

dear sir/madam,

i am from india,mumbai. have gone through your conversations and found interest for ADHEAR technology useful for one side deafness due to internal neurons deadness or some childhood physical inability to hear from both ears.

i want some clear information for ADHEAR usefulness for myself, struggling to hear from my left ear clear and normally without using (currently i use CROS system hearing aids from GN REsound - left with cells and right is charging type). my ENT diagnosed me as profound hearing loss due to neurons deadness. i tried siemens hearing aids as well as current one which i mentioned above.

will this ADHEAR technology work for me, and what will be INR charges for that if its available in INDIA.

yours truly

Dnyanesh.
