Binaural Cochlear Implants

FDA criteria do not limit patients to monaural implants. Insurance companies may limit coverage, but this is not based on FDA criteria. Generally, implant surgeons will implant only one ear initially to preserve residual hearing should the implant fail. Successful implantation in one ear would not preclude subsequent implantation in the other ear, if it was medically appropriate. The patient's physician should provide clear justification for the second implant.
