"I have had horrible allergies for years. Prior to coming to Crosstimbers ENT, I had as many as 5 sinus infections each year, which meant I had as many rounds of antibiotics prescribed by my GP. Since opting for a relationship with Crosstimbers, I have learned effective alternative methods of controlling my sinus issues. I still have allergies, but I haven't had a sinus infection in nearly 3 years. Thanks to Allergy Specialist, Jennifer Taylor, she has identified my allergies and she is doing an awesome job of helping me overcome my issues. Thanks Jennifer Taylor, Jennifer Paris and Dr Shellenberger."- D.B. / Google / May 12, 2021

How do cochlear implants work?
Cochlear implants consist of a sound processor and receiver. The processor is fitted behind the ear while the receiver is implanted under the skin near the ear. This device sends sound signals to the inner ear known as the cochlea. Then, these signals get sent to the hearing nerve and onto the brain to interpret sound.
Cochlear implants are surgically placed under general anesthesia at a local hospital. A small incision is made behind the ear, and a tiny opening is created in the cochlea to insert the device. The incision behind the ear is then sutured closed to secure the receiver under the skin. Once complete, patients will be able to go home without prolonged downtime.
