Getting a Cochlear Implant: Dana’s Story

After struggling with progressive hearing loss, Dana got a cochlear implant in 2020 and has been receiving audiology services at the Marion Downs Center. Dana shares his experience of struggling with progressive hearing loss, learning about cochlear implants, and adapting to the new technology.

The MDC offers a unique wellness approach to cochlear implant (CI) services. We believe that the consideration of CI candidacy and follow-up should be part of a comprehensive communication needs assessment. We offer multiple options for those struggling with the limitations of hearing aids.

We partner with experienced cochlear implant surgeons for medical evaluation and surgery. All other services are provided in our community-based facility with communication access and support for your needs and goals.

We are grateful to Dana for sharing his experience with us!
