A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that partially restores hearing to a person with inner ear damage. The device contains an external processor and an internal receiver that is implanted behind the ear. Cochlear implants are used for those with severe hearing loss who cannot benefit from hearing aids. They improve communication and enhance quality of life.
Medical tourists cross international borders to seek cochlear implants from world-class ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists. These doctors, called otolaryngologists, have extensive training and experience in restoring sound to the hearing impaired. Surgeons in more than 50 international medical centers perform surgeries using the most advanced cochlear implant technologies. In addition to availability of service, foreign patients enjoy a high level of quality and safety ensured by international accreditation agencies.
