Cochlear Implants

Longmont Hearing & Tinnitus Center is proud to be a part of the Cochlear Provider Network. We are skilled at the assessment, fitting, and adjustment of cochlear implants, hybrid hearing, and bone-anchored hearing aids.

Hearing loss can strike anyone, of any age, at any time. Perhaps you’ve had it since childhood. It could be that you first noticed it at work, struggling to hear co-workers or presentations. Or maybe it was at a party. Or, it may have been a part of your life for so long that you can’t remember how it started.

Just as no two stories of hearing loss are the same, neither are the stories of overcoming it. In many situations, Cochlear can help with one of these treatment options – hybrid hearing, a cochlear implant, or a bone conduction implant. To determine if either is right for you, schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists to start the discussion.

Designed to help adults and children with severe to profound hearing loss, the Cochlear™ Nucleus® System mimics the natural hearing function of the inner ear. Using a uniquely designed electrode, it bypasses damage to the inner ear and delivers sound directly to your cochlea.

How Cochlear Implant Hearing Works?

Microphones on the sound processor pick up sounds and the processor converts them into digital information.

This information is transferred through the coil to the implant just under the skin.

The implant sends electrical signals down the electrode into the cochlea.

The hearing nerve fibers in the cochlea pick up the signals and send them to the brain, giving the sensation of sound.

Hybrid Implants

Designed to help adults with high-frequency hearing loss, the Cochlear™ Nucleus® Hybrid Implant System is a combination of two proven technologies brought together. It’s the only FDA-approved hearing solution that restores access to the high-frequency hearing you are missing through cochlear implant technology, while enhancing your low-frequency hearing through acoustic amplification—all in one device.

Bone Conduction Implants

Cochlear Osia

The Cochlear Osia is the first of its kind: an active osseointegrated steady-state implant. Along with its sleek design and superior adaptability, it’s safe to say that hearing implants will never be the same. The Cochlear Osia is made of two parts: the sound processor and the implant. The implant is placed behind the ear and underneath the skin. The sound processor is placed near to the ear and is held in place by a magnetic connection. The Osia features dual microphones that capture sound, which the sound processor converts into a digital signal. That signal is then transmitted through the skin via a digital link, and travels down to the implant to the Piezo Power transducer.

Using piezoelectric material, the transducer generates mechanical vibrations. The titanium implant, which is fused with the bone, transmits those vibrations through the skull and directly to the inner ear, where those vibrations are converted into electrical impulses. Once that’s done, those impulses are sent to the brain to be interpreted as sound.

Designed to help people with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, and single-sided deafness, the Cochlear Baha® System utilizes your body’s natural ability to conduct sound. By connecting to the bone behind your ear, the Cochlear Baha® System bypasses the damaged outer or middle ear and sends sound directly to your healthy inner ear, where sound comes to life.
