FDA approval in the US for Single Sided Deafness

Recommended Posts

Hey all!  I just saw this news today and wanted to pass it along!  I've always thought it was so frustrating that CI's were not available (or at least not FDA approved in the US) to those with Single Sided Deafness.   Not anymore!  Med-el just became the first CI manufacturer to gain approval for patients 5 and up!  Pass this info along to any one you know who may have SSD and were hoping to get an implant.  Good news!

That is so exciting! I am in Australia with SSD and I recently got my implant, fully covered under government health care. It has improved my quality of life beyond measure. I wish for others to have the same opportunity!
