Cochlear Implant

Providing Options for the Profoundly Hearing Impaired

The INTEGRIS Cochlear Implant Clinic provides new hope for hearing impaired adults and children through state-of-the-art technology, device implantation, and rehabilitation.

It is our goal to help cochlear implant recipients learn to use the sound provided by developing the listening potential required to achieve speech and language in the hearing impaired child, and maintain language and communication skills in the hearing impaired adult.

What is a Cochlear Implant?

A cochlear implant is an electronic device that allows severe-to-profoundly hearing-impaired individuals to receive auditory information. The cochlear implant does not restore normal hearing.

Cochlear Implant Clinic History, Oklahoma City OK

Our History

The INTEGRIS Cochlear Implant Clinic was established in 1979 to provide a hearing option for the profoundly hearing impaired. Some hearing-impaired children and adults do not derive sufficient benefit from traditional hearing aids to enable them to process spoken language or speech.

Hearing Screenings and Tests, Oklahoma City OK

Screenings and Tests

Cochlear implant candidacy (examination) depends on a variety of factors. The pre-implant evaluation may take several weeks and/or months to complete. An appropriate candidate has a severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss and receives "little or no benefit" from powerful hearing aids.
