Cochlear Baha® Implants Joliet, Morris and New Lenox, Illinois

Baha® Implants

The Baha® system utilizes your body’s natural ability to conduct sound. BAHA hearing implant at ENT Surgical Consultants

Bone, like air, can conduct sound vibrations. For people with hearing loss, this provides another pathway to perceive sound. Typical hearing aids rely on air conduction and a functioning middle ear.

In cases where the middle ear function is blocked, damaged or occluded, the Baha system may be a better option as it bypasses the outer and middle ear altogether. Instead, sound is sent around the damaged or problematic area, naturally stimulating the cochlea through bone conduction.

Once the cochlea receives these sound vibrations, the organ ‘hears’ in the same manner as through air conduction; the sound is converted into neural signals and is transferred to the brain, allowing a Baha recipient to perceive sound.

BAHA Surgery is indicated for single sided deafness.
