Who is a Candidate?

If you have one of the following conditions, you may be a candidate for a Baha evaluation:

  • Conductive hearing loss: problem with the outer or middle ear
  • Mixed hearing loss: problem with the outer or middle ear, as well as with the inner ear
  • Single-sided deafness: little or no hearing in one ear, with normal hearing on the other side

What to Expect

You will first undergo a Baha evaluation to determine if this treatment option may be right for you. If your ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist determines that the Baha implant is a good treatment option for your type and degree of hearing loss, you will undergo a surgical procedure to have the device implanted. The Baha system is comprised of three parts: a sound processor, connecting abutment (support), and an implant placed in the bone behind your ear.

Sometime after the surgical procedure, your Baha device will need to be turned on. You can expect a period of adjustment as you learn to hear with your new implanted device.
