Cochlear implants are small hearing devices fitted under the skin behind your ear during surgery.They have an external sound processor and internal parts, including a receiver coil, an electronics package and a long wire with electrodes on it (an electrode array).
A cochlear implant is sometimes recommended for adults or children who have severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss in both ears, which isn't helped by hearing aids. Both ears are usually implanted for children, whereas adults are usually only able to have one implant .
If a cochlear implant is recommended, it will be inserted into your ear (or both ears) during an operation and switched on a few weeks later
