Suitable implant

Recommended Posts

Hi all, how will I know which is the most suitable implant for myself? Or will the surgeon decide that for me?

Hi @Tina

 

This may vary from country to country and even from clinic to clinic in the same country.

At New York Eye & Ear, we choose between the 3 cochlear implant brands approved in the US.

A lot will depend on your area and the experience of surgeon and audiologist. You will probably be fine with any of the main 3 brands. The surgeon will choose the actual electrode after you have made your choice. I think the major criterion is your support.

I had to decide on what I received - my clinic is a big one and my surgeon was experienced with all three brands so I was able to choose without worrying about that.
