Some parents, teachers and doctors think that a child who is deaf in one ear will not have any problems at home or at school because the other ear is normal.
The BAHA is comprised of two subunits: a titanium Osseo integrated screw and a sound processor.
Have you had any of the following imaging studies done as they pertain to your requested appointment?
This dramatically improves the perception of sound direction and hearing performance in crowded situations such as restaurants.


The Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) allows these individuals to perceive sound from their non-hearing side eliminating phenomena called the “head shadow effect.” The BAHA system is a bone conducting hearing prosthesis. The titanium screw is placed into the bone above the ear during a short procedure usually done under local anesthesia. Questions related to surgery scheduling, cancellation, rescheduling or pre-operative exams must be conducted via telephone or in-person with our surgical scheduling staff during normal business hours.
In order for the system to work the other (contra lateral) ear must have normal or near normal hearing.


The screw has small holes in the metal that allows growth of bone into it causing a tight union between the bone and metal. Sound is transmitted through the bone of the ear and skull to the delicate nerve endings of the inner ear thus producing amplified sound.
