In children with severe or profound deafness, part of the auditory nerve is damaged and sound is not able to be travel to the brain. The cochlear implant was invented about thirty years ago and is now a valuable option for those children.

At Pediatric Ear, Nose and Throat of Atlanta, the Cochlear Implant Team is comprised of highly trained and specialized pediatric ENT physicians, nurse practitioners and pediatric audiologists who provide comprehensive care in the evaluation, surgical implantation, mapping and ongoing follow-up of children who are candidates for cochlear implantation.
