Candidates for unilateral cochlear implantation are individuals who have severe to profound hearing loss in one ear and limited benefit from hearing aids. A comprehensive evaluation by an audiologist and an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist is typically conducted to determine eligibility.
A cochlear implant consists of an external sound processor that captures and processes sound, and an internal implant that is surgically placed inside the ear. The implant stimulates the auditory nerve directly, bypassing the damaged parts of the inner ear, and allows the brain to perceive sound signals.
Unilateral Cochlear Implantation, a comprehensive medical package includes:
• Preoperative evaluation.
• Unilateral Cochlear Implantation.
• Postoperative care and follow-up.
• Travel and accommodation arrangements.
• Visa assistance.
• Local transportation.
• Language interpretation services.
These services are part of the medical package and aim to provide a convenient and comprehensive experience for patients undergoing Unilateral Cochlear Implantation, from evaluation to surgery and postoperative care.
The success of a cochlear implantation procedure depends on various factors, including the individual's age, the duration of hearing loss, the condition of the inner ear, and the rehabilitation process.
The recovery process for unilateral cochlear implantation typically involves a few weeks of healing. During this time, patients may experience some discomfort or swelling around the surgical site. Activation and programming of the cochlear implant occur approximately 3-4 weeks after the surgery.
