Audiology and Cochlear Services
Find information about audiologists and cochlear implants, and how they can help.
Audiologists are experts in hearing loss and balance disorders and can help people of all ages experiencing hearing loss with the use of hearing aids and other assistive technologies to improve their ability to communicate.
Audiologists work across a range of health settings including hospitals, schools, residential aged care facilities and private practice.
A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that is surgically inserted into the inner ear—the cochlea—to provide a sense of sound to a person with moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss.
The implant stimulates the hearing nerve and provides sound directly to the brain. Cochlear implants bypass the normal acoustic hearing process, instead replacing it with electric signals, which directly stimulate the auditory nerve.
Cochlear implants are also known as ‘bionic ears’.
