Loading and Tuning Following BCHI Surgery

Explaining the loading and tuning of BCHD

When will I receive my device?

You will receive your device three weeks after your surgery.


What happens in the fitting appointment?

The audiologist will check your implant site to ensure it is healing well and then run a test on your implant to check how stable it is. Assuming all is fine, the audiologist will tune the device to your liking and explain how it works and how to use the accessories (if applicable).
