Regional Leader in Cochlear Implants

TGH is proud to be the regional leader in cochlear implants. This surgery has enabled hundreds of people in the Tampa Bay area who are deaf or severely hard of hearing to regain a sense of sound so that speech is understandable. A cochlear implant is a surgically delivered device that works by stimulating the auditory nerve within the cochlea, or inner ear, with electrical impulses. More than 100 cochlear implant surgeries are performed at Tampa General Hospital each year, making us the busiest cochlear implant center in the region.
