The bone-anchored hearing aid (Baha) implant uses your body’s ability to conduct sound to help you hear more in the world around you. The device is implanted in the bone behind your ear and uses the bone to transmit sound to your brain, where it is interpreted.
While a typical hearing aid pushes sound through the damaged part of the ear, the Baha device uses your body’s natural ability to conduct sound using bone vibrations. In this way, sound bypasses the damaged portion of your ear and sends clearer sound straight to your inner ear. The specialists at University of Miami Health System use Baha evaluations to determine if a Baha implant is right for you.
