What’s Life Like with a Cochlear Implant? Ask a Mentor!

There are people and tools to support your hearing journey
with cochlear implants.

With cochlear implants, you can’t “try it before you buy it.”  So, it’s helpful to hear from others who have gotten a CI and learn from their first-hand experiences.

When you choose Advanced Bionics, you will never be alone on your CI journey. There’s a large network of people and families who hear and live with cochlear implants. Many of them are volunteer CI mentors who are more than happy to connect with you and share their experiences.
