Cochlear Implant Evaluations

Candidates for a Cochlear implant undergo tests before surgery to help the Cochlear Implant Team identify specific conditions or needs of the candidate and family, and to explain the benefits and set appropriate expectations for the candidate and family.

Candidacy evaluations not only help to determine whether a cochlear implant is appropriate, but also help to plan the services and follow-up that will provide for the best possible outcome. Assessment includes evaluation and testing in the following areas:

Audiological

Medical

Radiological

Psychological

Speech & Language
