120,000th Cochlear Implant Milestone
Cochlear, the world's leader in advanced hearing technologies, today announced a landmark milestone when Dr. Thomas Roland, Jr., MD of NYU Langone Medical Center performs the 120,000th cochlear implant device procedure.
“Cochlear implants are the most effective treatment for people with severe to profound hearing loss and are becoming the standard of care globally,” said Dr. Roland. “In fact, it is becoming common practice for people to now receive a device in both ears, as the clinical evidence clearly demonstrates the benefit. At NYU, we do more than five implants per week and this continues to grow each year.” The NYU team of audiologists currently manage about 1800 recipients.
