Abstract

Cochlear implants are a safe and effective treatment for children with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. As implant technology continues to improve and outcomes are analyzed, younger and younger children are being deemed candidates for implantation. The decision to operate is made after a thorough evaluation by a multidisciplinary team. This review will highlight the preoperative and postoperative issues related to pediatric cochlear implantation.
