Not everyone who has a hearing impairment benefits from hearing aids. Fortunately, other options currently exist for these individuals. A variety of implantable hearing devices are now available in the marketplace or are under development that can assist people with conductive or sensorineural losses ranging from mild to profound in degree. These implantable technologies have evolved in an attempt to provide alternative surgical and rehabilitative treatment options. These options, coupled with the new implantable technologies on the horizon, make this an exciting era for clinicians. That is, our clinical armamentarium is expanding to include implantable device options to help children and adults with hearing impairment overcome communication barriers at home, in school, and at work.
