What Research Projects Are On-Going at Stanford Regarding Cochlear Implantation?
We have several research projects regarding cochlear implantation. Currently, we are studying methods to predict which patients will have the best hearing outcomes with a cochlear implant. Also, we are studying the best methods for coordinating educational programs for children with implants.
One particularly exciting area of research that has not yet reached the clinical stage yet, is the development of alternative techniques to restore hearing in patients with hearing loss. Basic science research related to hearing preservation and restoration can be found at OHNS Research.
