Dr. David Friedmann, Neurotologist at NYU, discusses his experience with the Slim Modiolar electrode and how the advanced technology benefits outcomes for patients of all ages.
The Slim Modiolar electrode provides full cochlear coverage and perimodiolar placement for optimal performance. Additionally, its thin design facilitates the possibility to preserve hearing structures.
Dr. Friedmann further explains how the electrode’s external sheath design optimizes placement, which can impact overall performance. This sheath-based insertion replaces the AOS insertion technique with a stylet. Although this new insertion process may present a learning curve, he believes the improved patient outcomes of the Slim Modiolar electrode make it worthwhile.
