Porter Regional Hospital

To Present Hearing Aides Not Enough? Cochlear Implants May Help
Monday, June 16 @ 6:00pm


If your hearing aids aren't sufficiently helping, cochlear implants may be an option for both adults and children with severe to profound hearing loss. Unlike a hearing aid that amplifies sound, a cochlear implant is an implantable hearing solution that delivers sound straight to your auditory nerve. Join ENT Dr. Matthew Provenzano who will discuss cochlear implants along with other options for those with hearing loss. The event will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, June 16 in the Community Room at Porter Regional Hospital in Valparaiso.
