A new study from Cleveland Clinic researchers evaluated the perceived health-related quality-of-life benefits of CI among normally-developing children and NCNIDD children.
Technology and the ability to identify CI candidates have improved, but clinicians still have a responsibility to advocate for their patients until access to the device improves.
Caregivers should feel confident in referring patients who could benefit from implants, but it is important to do so early.

For patients who are at risk for progressive sensorineural hearing loss, providing a safety net against a sudden world of silence could do immeasurable good. Cochlear implant is an option.
Cleveland Clinic’s Hearing Implant Program allows meaningful, objective comparisons of hearing devices in a controlled environment to determine which works best for them.
At least partial preservation of low-frequency acoustic hearing after cochlear implantation is possible for most patients with combined electric and acoustic configuration and periodic audiometric postop evaluation
