What is a baha?

A Baha is a bone-anchored hearing aid that is placed in position through surgery.  It has both internal and external parts.  A Baha may be appropriate for someone who has one-sided deafness, has had many ear infections, or who may not have a normal outer ear.

It helps people with a different type of hearing loss from those who would benefit from a cochlear implant.

Baha placement is available in some centres in Canada.
