The baha is a surgically implantable system for treatment of hearing loss. The system works by enhancing natural bone transmission as a pathway for sound to travel to the inner ear — thus bypassing the external auditory canal and middle ear. The titanium implant is placed during a short outpatient surgical procedure. Over several months, the implant naturally integrates with the skull bone.
