Sometimes in life a person loses their hearing, in an accident or for some other reason, but today’s scientific advances have managed to solve this problem almost entirely with the advent of the cochlear implant.

The cochlear implant is a small and complex electronic device that helps give back the sense of sound to profoundly deaf people and those with severe hearing impairments. Its function is to do the work of the damaged parts of the inner ear.

In Cuba this procedure is has been used successfully since the establishment of the National Cochlear Implant Programme in 2004. Up to now, around 430 patients have received implants, most of them children, and the results have been excellent. CIS La Pradera is an institution recognized nationally and internationally for cochlear implant treatments and other specialized medical services aimed at improving wellbeing and quality of life.
