Baha (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid)

Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) is a device that transmits sound energy through vibration of the skull, bypassing the eardrum and the middle ear hearing bones. Skull vibration leads to the stimulation of the inner ear and perception of sound.

BAHA is indicated in two groups of patients who are unable to use a conventional hearing aid:

1. Conductive (mechanical) hearing loss

  • Those with congenital aural atresia.
  • Those with chronic infection made worse by hearing aids.

2. Nerve hearing loss

  • Those who have single-sided deafness from birth, surgery (ex. acoustic neuroma), injury, viral infection etc.

Our clinicians are experienced with Cochlear BAHA and Oticon Medical Ponto BAHs.
