As part of Northwell Health—a recognized leader in newborn hearing screening, early identification and treatment of hearing loss—the Apelian Cochlear Implant Center at Long Island Jewish Medical Center offers specialized services for the evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of those with severe to profound hearing loss who can't be helped with conventional hearing aids and may benefit from cochlear implants. Our center, conveniently located on the Queens-Nassau border, is an extension of Northwell's comprehensive and coordinated approach to hearing health care provided throughout a patient's life.
Our highly trained and experienced cochlear implant team includes neurotologic surgeons, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, a social worker and an educator. This team assists pediatric and adult patients through every step of the cochlear implant process to help them make informed decisions and to get the maximum benefit from the implant. Families and educators are invaluable members of the team providing daily support for the patient receiving the implant.
