How much time does it take to get a cochlear implant?

Depends. Evaluation may involve appointment with physicians and audio logic evaluation. Usually need CT scan or MRI to evaluate inner ear. If a candidate, my require authorization from insurance company. Surgery as outpatient 1-2 hours.
Confused. A cochlear implant is an effective procedure to retain some hearing in patients with total deafness. The ear surgeon will apply for this and depending on the surgeons' report to the insurance company, should not take more than a few weeks. If you are talking about the actual procedure, it takes about 2 -3 hours. Why don't you ask the Otologist?
