In brief: Cochlear implant

Is a device surgically implanted in children and adults with some forms of profound hearing loss.
Mostly in patients who have damage to the cochlea where the hair cells are found. There are different companies that make the cochlear implants, and your doctor will evaluate with you what is the most appropriate one for you or your family member.

Any of the manufacturer websites give good info.
Don't get caught up in the specific marketing hype of the site but rather look at how they work and help.
