If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is very possible a hearing implant could benefit you.
The next step is speaking to your GP, who will refer you to an implant surgeon to determine your medical suitability.
The Attune Cochlear Implant Program has no waiting lists, so you will gain immediate access to expert advice and care.
Once you have seen an implant surgeon, you can book an appointment with an implant audiologist.
Should you be deemed suitable for implantation and decide to proceed, your surgery will be scheduled and you will start your cochlear implant journey.
The Attune Hearing Cochlear Implant program includes a very comprehensive post implant care program, including periodic checks of the implant site, auditory and speech training and counselling to support you as you adjust to your new device.
There are a wide range of funding options available for implant recipients in Australia. We advise you speak with your clinical audiologist to determine which option is right for you.
