Cochlear Implant Video - "Bionic Ear"



This video demonstrates how a cochlear implant (aka, "bionic ear") surgery is performed. Both animation and actual surgery are shown to illustrate this procedure. With this surgery, patients who are deaf or suffering from severe hearing loss may now be able to hear.

The video below is animation only as some people may find watching actual surgery a bit much.

Listen to what a cochlear implant sounds like to a patient after this surgery.

This video was created in collaboration with Dr. Ashkan Monfared who is an Associate Professor of Surgery and Neurosurgery, Director of Otology and Neurotology at George Washington University Medical Center.
