A cochlear implant is a device that has internal and external parts and is designed to replace the portions of the ear that aren't working properly. Parts of the implant are placed inside the head during a surgical procedure. Another part is worn on the outside, behind the ear. With training and therapy, a child with a cochlear implant can learn to hear and speak well.
