Welcome to the VCU Cochlear Implant Center
A cochlear implant is a revolutionary device that has changed the lives of tens of thousands of patients across the globe. Originally designed to provide simple access to sound and noise, technological advances over the last 20 years have enabled cochlear implant users to enjoy a tremendous range of benefits.
Our cochlear implant team is the veteran implant team in Virginia, and among the busiest programs in the United States. Began in 1986 as one of 24 original programs in the FDA Clinical Trials for multichannel cochlear implants, the VCU Cochlear Implant Center continues as an official clinical and research Center of Excellence, providing cutting edge care for patients with severe hearing loss.
