At Ohio State, our philosophy is simple: provide individuals with quality, state-of-the-art hearing health care services by addressing the comprehensive, individualized needs of each patient. Our comprehensive model is unique and draws on the expertise of our surgeons, audiologists, and speech-language pathologists to fully understand and treat the many factors that determine patient success. Our multidisciplinary team will work with you to set individualized expectations and provide you with resources to specifically meet your most important communication needs. 

Our first adult cochlear implant surgery took place in 1988. Since that time, our physicians have performed hundreds of implant surgeries on adults and children.
