The Hearing Aid Process

Our audiologist will review the results of your hearing test and provide you with basic information about hearing aids. Our audiologist will make a specific professional recommendation for the most appropriate hearing aids for you, taking into consideration your hearing loss, your listening needs, and your personal preferences regarding:

  • Style/aesthetics
  • Cost
  • Features
At your fitting appointment, your hearing aids will be programmed to fit your hearing loss and configuration. You will have at least one follow-up appointment scheduled approximately two weeks after your initial fitting. This appointment allows your audiologist to meet with you, discuss your experiences, and make any further adjustments to fine-tune the hearing aid programming as needed.

Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids

Osseointegrated, or bone-anchored, hearing devices are recommended for patients with specific types of hearing loss for which a traditional hearing aid may not be beneficial. A titanium implant called an abutment is surgically placed in the mastoid bone behind the ear. An external device called a sound processor attaches to the abutment. Microphones on the processor pick up sound and the processor changes that sound into vibrations which are transmitted to the ear via the abutment.

Cochlear Implants

A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted hearing device that is recommended for patients with hearing loss so severe that they do not benefit from traditional hearing aids. The implanted portion consists of a receiver and an electrode array. The electrode array is inserted into the cochlea, the organ of hearing in the inner ear. The receiver is placed behind the ear on the mastoid bone just under the skin. The external portion, called a speech processor, is held in place over the receiver by a magnet. The processor is either a behind-the-ear device similar to a hearing aid, or a body-worn device. Microphones on the processor pick up sound and the processor changes that acoustic energy into electrical energy. These signals are sent from the external processor to the receiver under the skin, which in turn sends signals to the electrode array. The electrodes in the inner ear stimulate the hearing nerve and send signals to the brain. In this way, the cochlear implant bypasses severe damage in the inner ear to enable patients to hear.
