Hearing Implants

While many people can treat their hearing loss with hearing aids, others have degrees of hearing loss that may need advanced treatment such as a bone-anchored hearing aid (Oticon Ponto), which is surgically implanted directly behind the ear causing sound vibrations to be transmitted through to the bone to the cochlea.
