What is a cochlear Implant?

Cochlear Implant is a small complex device that improves the hearing ability of individuals who are profoundly deaf or those who find it very difficult to hear. A cochlear implant bypasses the part of the ear that is damaged to send the voice, unlike hearing aids which amplify the sound. A cochlear implant consists of an external piece consisting of a microphone, sound processor and transmitter that are placed behind the ear and an internal piece consisting of electrodes that are accommodated within the ear. 

Preparation of procedure

Before the surgery, your doctor will examine your external, middle and internal ear for any abnormality.

The doctor may advise certain tests such as audiograms, CT scans, and MRI.


The surgeon makes an incision to expose the mastoid bone.

The surgeon then makes an incision in the cochlea (spiral bone in the inner ear) to insert an electrode array into the cochlea. 

The receiver is placed behind the ear, and the incision is closed.

Follow up

The patient needs to visit the hospital after 1 week for the removal of the external bandage. The follow-up appointment is meant to check the functioning of the cochlear implant and to evaluate the frequency of future appointments.

Comprehensive Services

Cochlear Implants:

Deafness is the loss of the ability to hear normally. There are two types of deafness - conductive and sensori-neural. These can occur separately or together when it is called mixed loss, and one (unilateral) or both ears (bilateral) may be involved to varying degrees from mild to profound. Most cases of nerve deafness don’t respond to treatment and may only be helped with hearing Aids or Cochlear Implants.

Diagnosistic Procedures

Hopkins's diagnostic Laryngoscopy and Video Laryngoscopy - Laryngeal video-endoscopy provides information about vocal fold structure and gross function and anomalies, if any. It is used to diagnose and document voice and laryngeal disorders, plan treatment, make longitudinal comparisons, educate patients, and provide biofeedback for voice and breathing therapy. It is very useful to record the video and still images in the documentation for routine follow-up.

Video Stroboscopy - Video-stroboscopy is a state-of-the-art technique that provides a magnified, slow-motion view of the vocal cord vibration. Minute vocal fold lesions which are hitherto not appreciable by normal mirror/ video laryngoscopic examination are easily diagnosed, enabling the laryngologist to plan treatment accordingly.

Therapeutic Procedures

Video-assisted injection laryngoplasty - Injection medialization laryngoplasty is a procedure by which  bio-compatible filler material is injected into a vocal fold that lacks either the bulk (such as in vocal fold bowing) or the mobility (such as in vocal fold palsy).

Video-assisted laryngeal Botox injection - In Spasmodic dysphonia, Inj Botox Type A can be injected into the vocal folds accurately under video-laryngoscopic control.

Office-based Phono-surgical procedures - Small nodules or polyps of Vocal folds can be excised under local anesthesia under video laryngoscopic control as an outpatient procedure.
