Cochlear implant, what kind of device is it? Well, a cochlear (auditory) implant is an electronic hearing prosthesis implanted during surgery for people with deafness. It consists of 2 parts. Internal, the one under the skin and external (speech processor), i.e. the one you see.
It does happen that a baby with impaired hearing is born in a healthy family where everyone can hear well an the problem of hearing loss has not occurred in the past. Often a family does not want to acknowledge facts about their child's health, deny the diagnosis and look for a confirmation that there must have been a mistake made somewhere.
