Bone-Anchored Devices near Encino, CA
Enjoy 5-Star-Rated Treatments at Hearing Loss Solutions
For patients experiencing conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, or single-sided deafness, bone-anchored hearing devices can offer life-changing solutions. These devices bypass the outer and middle ear structures and are surgically implanted to treat hearing loss through bone conduction of sound vibrations, as opposed to amplifying sounds like traditional hearing aids.

Who Is a Candidate for Bone-Anchored Hearing Devices?
Bone-anchored hearing devices work by sending sound vibrations directly to the inner ear and can help improve the hearing of patients with the following issues:
- Chronic ear infections
- Malformations of the outer or middle ear
- Single-sided deafness – loss of hearing in one ear with normal hearing in the other ear
- Acoustic neuroma
- Meniere’s disease
- Middle ear disease or dysfunction
How Do Bone-Anchored Implants Work?
Bone-anchored hearing devices are placed during an outpatient surgical procedure that typically takes less than one hour. These implants consist of three parts: a titanium implant, a sound processor, and an external connecting element. The titanium implant is placed into the bone behind the ear and naturally fuses to the bone over time. A small abutment with an attached removable microphone and sound processor is then inserted and protrudes out through the skin.
