- Why Choose Sharp?
At Sharp Rees-Stealy, we are changing lives by restoring patients’ hearing with the latest cochlear implant procedure. The cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that can provide a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing.
Thus far, more than 120,000 people around the world have already received the FDA-approved Nucleus® cochlear implant, a leading technology also used at Sharp Rees-Stealy. Patients — along with their families — are often amazed with the results as they are once again able to communicate with their loved ones and hear the sounds of chirping birds.
The Sharp Rees-Stealy cochlear implant team, led by Sharp-affiliated otolaryngologist Dr. Michael Holtel, is staffed by nationally certified, licensed audiologists, otologists and speech therapists.
The cochlear implant procedure is performed at our Sharp Rees-Stealy San Diego and Scripps Ranch locations. We accept most health insurance plans. Contact your health insurance plan’s member services department for details on your coverage.
