Hybrid cochlear implant, a new hope to cure hearing loss

Kathy Barger at UCSF Medical Center is expecting to get an experimental device to cure hearing loss. She tried hard to find out the solution of hearing loss and invented a bionic ear i.e. a hybrid cochlear implant. It is surgically fixed behind and into ear.

A hybrid is modified to add in only higher frequencies, a general problem occurs in old age. On the other hand, the surgery has some risks too, such as complete hearing loss.
