THE HELENE AND GRANT WILSON PEDIATRIC AND ADULT AUDITORY BRAINSTEM IMPLANT PROGRAM

The Helene and Grant Wilson Auditory Brainstem Implant Program at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary is a multidisciplinary team of Scientists, Audiologists, and Neurotologic surgeons. Collaborating Neurologists, and adult and pediatric skull base neurosurgeons are based at the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Mass General Hospital for Children.

We care for infants, children and adults who are deaf and are not candidates for the cochlear implant but who may benefit from the auditory brainstem implant (ABI).

Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type 2, cochlear aplasia, cochlear or auditory nerve aplasia or hypoplasia, scarring of the cochlea due to meningitis or otosclerosis, or auditory nerve and/or cochlear injury from temporal bone / skull base fractures are all possible candidates for the ABI.
