dislab Posted September 20, 2021 Report Share Posted September 20, 2021 Hello, I have profound hearing loss on both ears. After the recent hearing test my ENT doctor suggested me to consider cochlear implant. I live on Long Island, close to New York City, and there are many hospitals and doctors that perform cochlear implant surgery. My ENT doctor recommended a doctor in Manhattan, who did many cases, but the office is a little more than one hour driving. There is a hospital near my home called Long Island Jewish Medical Center (part of Northwell) and it has a cochlear implant center, which will be really convenient if I need to visit often. There are other options too and they all look very good. I am wondering how to choose from all those doctors. I am in my 70s and have had hearing loss for 10+ years. I was told the result of cochlear implant depends on the quality of the surgery, but not sure how different it could be. Should I choose a doctor who did many cases? Any suggestions are very welcome! Thanks in advance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
