Adult Cochlear Implant Program

Washington University’s Cochlear Implant Program is internationally known for its high quality care and clinically relevant research. The program was developed under the direction and leadership of Margaret W. Skinner, Ph.D., a clinician and researcher whose work has resulted in protocols that are used worldwide for programming cochlear implants. Currently, Dr. Jill Firszt, Ph.D., is the director of the cochlear implant program.

Our cochlear implant team is dedicated to providing optimal benefit for each cochlear implant recipient through skilled device programming and individual rehabilitation. The team is available to help patients (18 years and older) at all stages of the process:

  • determining if an implant is appropriate

  • assisting with predetermination of insurance coverage

  • performing implant surgery

  • providing extensive follow-up care

Adults may be a cochlear implant candidate if they have moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss in both ears and/or difficulty understanding people even with high power hearing aids.
