Cochlear Implant Program

The British Hospital was a pioneer in carrying out the first cochlear implant in the country, in an adult, in 1994, and in a child, in 1999, and also in detecting neonatal hearing loss or deafness, for many years before it was required by law to do so.

It was the first hospital in Uruguay in which universal screening was implemented for each child born, which is extremely important for the detection of hearing loss.

So far, the Cochlear Implant Program of the British Hospital has carried out 500 procedures in the country, so the team has vast experience in the field, ensuring the greatest possible safety for the patient and with the best available technology, in order to optimize the results.
