Also known as BAHA, the bone-anchored hearing aid uses conduction through bone to the inner ear, which bypasses parts of the ear that are damaged or missing. The device is implanted surgically with a small processor exposed outside of the skin. The processor transmits sounds to the implant which vibrates the skull and inner ear to create hearing. For more information on BAHA implants, call West Long Branch Speech and Hearing Center
The unique aspect of BAHA implants is the ability to remove the implant. No other surgical hearing procedure is reversible like the bone-anchored hearing aid. If you think this implant is the right one for you, call West Long Branch Speech and Hearing Center to schedule an appointment to discuss your needs.
