Bone conduction implant
Why consider a bone conduction implant?
A bone conduction implant may be an option if you:
- should wear hearing aids but can’t because of repeated ear infections.
- have lost the hearing in one ear.
We work with your Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon to establish whether a bone conduction implant is an appropriate option for you. We are always available to discuss your case with you. Contact us at [email protected]
How does a bone conduction implant work?
Consider normal hearing where sound is transmitted along the following route:
A bone conduction implant amplifies incoming sound dependent on your hearing levels. Instead of sending the sound through your ear as a hearing aid would, it sends the sound by vibration across your skull to the hearing organ (cochlea).
