Cochlear Implant Program
Ochsner’s cochlear implant team is among the most experienced when it comes to evaluating and determining the right time for an adult or child to consider a cochlear implant surgery. We have one of the largest cochlear implant centers in the Gulf South having treated over 1000 patients, including both the pediatric and the senior population. Our cochlear implant team consists two surgeons, three audiologists, and two speech therapists. We have quarterly support group meetings for both our newly implanted and long term implanted adults along with support groups for our parents. In addition, we host an informative and entertaining cochlear implant Christmas celebration annually.
