Cochlear Implant Program

A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted device that provides useful hearing and improved communication ability to individuals who have a severe to profound hearing loss and do not receive benefit from hearing aids.

Since 1987, PEI has been regarded as the premier cochlear implant practice in New Mexico. Focusing on the study of pediatric multichannel cochlear implants, PEI was one of the initial FDA approved sites for cochlear implantation for children. Now, PEI is home to New Mexico’s largest cochlear implant program for children and adults. Currently, we are the only pediatric cochlear implant program in New Mexico.
