Candidacy for Bone Conduction Implants
Candidates for bone conduction implants are those with a mixed and conductive hearing loss or Single Sided Deafness, which is the type of hearing loss that results from acoustic neuroma tumor removal. At least one functioning cochlea is necessary.
In your case, you are most likely a candidate for the Baha System, as you have profound sensorineural hearing loss on one side only. For those with SSD, the Baha System is implanted on the deaf side. It sends sound received by the deaf ear through the skull bone to the opposite functioning cochlea, letting the patient hear and understand sounds from both sides.
Your audiologist should be able to provide you with a demonstration of the treatment.
