We’re happy to announce our new multidisciplinary Cochlear Implant Program here at Rocky Mountain Pediatric ENT Associates! Our team consists of our otolaryngologists Dr. John Bangiyev and, coming soon, Dr. Ryan Mitchell, our audiologist, Brittany James, AuD, CCC-A, and our Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Kelcie Scarlett. We also work with the team of talented Auditory Verbal Therapists at the Listening Foundation. This team specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for infants, children, and teens with significant hearing loss.
Who may benefit from a cochlear implant?
- Patients that may have inner-ear hearing loss and do not show enough benefit from traditional amplification (ex: Hearing aids)
- Patients with hearing loss in one or both ears
- Patients with auditory neuropathy who do not benefit from traditional amplification
If you think your child may benefit from a cochlear implant evaluation, please don’t hesitate to give us a call!
