A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of sound to a person who has a severe or profound hearing loss.
The implant is surgically placed in the inner ear by a specially trained ENT Surgeon. Cochlear implant surgery, including the implant itself, averages between £25,000 and £40,000 in U.K.
The best results are achieved at 1-3 years of age and 90 to 95 percent have hearing and language improvement and these children develop a hearing and speech equal to those of children with normal hearing.
