What Is Cochlear Implant?
Deaf patients or hard-of-hearing patients who haven’t seen successful treatment or significant improvement through conventional treatments or hearing aids will benefit greatly from cochlear BAHA implants.
Cochlear implants aren’t hearing aids. They’re in fact, vastly different. Hearing aids make sounds louder. On the other hand, Cochlear implants are installed through surgery.
The purpose of implants is to send impulses directly to the auditory nerve. The nerve learns to send these impulses to the brain, helping the patient understand sound in a new way.
This is what sets apart Cochlear implants as a revolutionary new approach to hearing loss. Cochlear implants are designed to create the ‘sensation’ of hearing by providing electrical stimulation to nerves in the cochlea, inside the ear. This enables patients with severe nerve deafness to ‘hear’ again.

What is the procedure for the implant?
Prior to the actual implantation process, a detailed testing and screening process will determine whether the patient is ready or eligible for cochlear implants. Assuming the patient makes it through the screening and is approved and ready for the next steps, the following takes place.
During the start of the surgical procedure, the patient may be given an IV. This part of the implantation is surgical. However, the procedure doesn’t take a lot of time. The medical team may shave the patient’s scalp around the implantation site, and attach cables to monitor the patient’s vitals.
Using a mask the patient will be provided with anesthesia and oxygen and put to sleep for the surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision behind the patient’s ear. A small hole will be created in the skull bone. This is where the internal device will be placed. A small opening will be made in the inner ear’s cochlea.
This is where the electrode that sends signals to the cochlea from the processor will be implanted. Once the internal device has been placed, the incision behind the ear is stitched back.
Once the procedure is over and the patient wakes up, they may feel some pressure or discomfort over their ear. This is normal and will pass in time. When the procedure has been completed, the actual implant will be activated after 3-6 weeks, once the incision site has healed.
Which Hospital did Mahira go to for a consultation?
The parents made a choice to get their child treated at MGM hospital. This was a choice that the couple had made for their little girl to be treated.
