Cochlear Implant: This is a surgically-implanted device that can provide hearing to those patients whose hearing is so poor that they are unable to communicate adequately with even the best conventional hearing aids. This technology has recently advanced to the point that patients who in the past were not candidates for this procedure may now be good candidates. CEENTA can provide the extensive pre-operative evaluation, determination of candidacy, surgical care, and post-operative support needed to obtain optimal results with this procedure.

Dr. Gold has given continuing education talks including:
"My Inner Ear Has Fallen and I Can't Get Up"
Railynn got her first cochlear implant
in April of 2015 and it just changed our lives. Before she got it she couldn’t say anything and could only speak in baby talk. Now she speaks a lot more and we are so excited. She can hear us. She’s learning the things she needs to learn, and she’s starting to understand more of what’s going on in the world around her. We’re just so thankful for Dr. Gold
and all the nurses who helped us through it all. - Kristan S.
