Thoroughly updated for its second edition, this book provides an in-depth discussion on prosthetic restoration of hearing via implantation.

The authors thoroughly examine the outcomes of cochlear implantation, the impact on the patient's quality of life, the benefits in relation to the costs, and the implications of cochlear implants for language and speech acquisition and childhood education.
