Children or adults with microtia or anotia often cannot hear very well with their affected ear. Conventional hearing aids are not effective as they do not fit very well in these children.
BAHA – bone anchored hearing aids, are excellent for this group of children or adults. Hearing is completely restored with this device.
A lot of progress and changes have happened n this field in the last few years. Cochlear, the leading company in this field, has come up with newer models and even wearable options that did not exist earlier. So, now if you are considering a Bone anchored hearing aid, we can give you a real time trial in our clinic. You can use it and decide for yourself if this works for you. Surgery is optional although a very good option if the technology works for you. Luckily, surgery is only minor.
The one downside that I might as well mention here is COST. These modern technologies are expensive. But if you are the right candidate and if you can arrange the funds, you will thank yourself for reading this blog.
