HOME / How we can help / Cochlear Implants
The Premier Cochlear Implant Center in East Tennessee
As East Tennessee’s most trusted otolaryngology specialists, we’ve had the pleasure of helping thousands of local people discover better ear, nose, and throat health.
When patients visit us concerned with their hearing health, it’s often after they’ve already exhausted the option of using hearing aids – the severity of their hearing loss is usually too significant for hearing aids to offer effective treatment.
