One significant contribution has been an implantable hearing technology, both with cochlear implants, otherwise known as the “Bionic Ear”, and bone conduction implants.
Gippsland Audiology has partnered with the Cochlear Implant Clinic at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital to bring cochlear implant services to Gippsland to add to their established bone conduction service offering. This has brought the gift of hearing closer to many in Gippsland who previously could not manage the time and distance required to get to Melbourne.
There are several manufacturers of hearing implant technology and Gippsland Audiology has access to all options. Like traditional hearing aid manufacturers, they each have their points of difference and our recommendation to each patient will depend on our patients’ needs and, of course, their surgical candidacy.
Gippsland Audiology is proud to work closely with the Ear Nose and Throat surgeons at South East ENT and Melbourne ENT Group.
