Bone Anchoring Hearing Aids (BAHA)
The BAHA is a type of hearing aid based on bone conduction. It is primarily suited for people who have conductive hearing losses, unilateral hearing loss, single-sided deafness and people with mixed hearing losses who cannot otherwise wear 'in the ear' or 'behind the ear' hearing aids.
Unlike other implantable hearing solutions, the ability to test the BAHA System by using the BAHA Softband allows you to experience the benefits of the technology first-hand before making the decision to move forward.
At St. Catherine Hospital, BAHA implants are overseen by Kedar Kakodkar, MD, a board-certified Ear, Nose & Throat specialist with fellowship training in pediatric otolaryngology at Northwestern University and Lurie Children’s Hospital. His team of audiologists is specially trained to fit the BAHA device after surgery.
For more information on BAHA, contact the Audiology Department at St. Catherine Hospital.
