Cochlear Implant (Hearing loss treatment) Surgery by Dr. Sharad Maheswari

A cochlear implant is an electronic device that is used to produce hearing in damaged inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, which make sounds louder, cochlear implants do the work of damaged parts of the inner ear (cochlea) to provide sound signals to the brain.

Cochlear implants are invented to cure severally damaged and children who get little or no benefit from hearing aids. Even individuals with severe or profound "nerve deafness" may be able to benefit from cochlear implants.

A cochlear implant takes sounds from the outer area and then converts it and send it near to auditory nerve.These electric currents activate the nerve, which then sends a signal to the brain. The brain learns to recognize this signal and the person experiences this as "hearing".

The cochlear implant makes a situation of natural hearing where current is created by sound that stimulates the auditory nerves. However, the result is not the same as normal hearing.
