Meet our Cochlear Implant Surgeons:
In providing your child with the best choice in cochlear implantation, we work collaboratively with all of the cochlear implant device manufacturers giving you a choice in the device your child receives.
All of our cochlear implant procedures are completed at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, which is one of the top-rated pediatric hospitals in the country. At Children’s you will receive the finest care from pediatric trained healthcare providers. The pediatric anesthesiologists at Children’s have received additional specialized training and experience providing the safest care for your child.
Following surgery, your child’s recovery and comfort is of the highest priority. Our surgeons are trained in the latest surgical techniques and use a minimal incision approach. This approach has been a well-accepted practice in pediatric cochlear implantation since 2004 and has largely replaced the older, larger and more invasive scalp incision.
The benefits of the minimal incision approach are:
- Shorter length of surgery with less time under anesthesia
- Smaller scar
- Reduced risk of complications
- Minimal hair removal
- Quicker recovery time
