Otologist Michael Novak, MD started the program at Carle in 1985. Now a nationally known provider of cochlear implants, Carle has been part of many clinical trials for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, including the original device studies for all three major cochlear implant manufacturers. Our team is dedicated to developing a long-term relationship with patients and families to maximize hearing and communications.
- BAHA – Bone anchored hearing device
These implantable devices are the ideal for treatment of conductive hearing loss, single-sided deafness and for patients who cannot wear traditional hearing aids.
