Dr. Gopi Shah discusses Aural Rehabilitation After Pediatric Cochlear Implantation: Expert Insight from Audiology on the BackTable 180 Podcast

Dr. Gopi Shah

Dr. Gopi Shah is a pediatric otolaryngologist and the co-host of BackTable ENT.

Synopsis

First, Dr. Cordingley explains how audiologists work alongside otolaryngologists, social workers, and occupational therapists to prepare patients for cochlear implantation. Since younger patients cannot sit for a standard audiogram, she uses auditory milestones, visual reinforcement audiology (VRA) and conditioned play audiometry (CPA) to assess pediatric hearing loss. Then, she explains how audiologists help patients learn to use their implant, underscoring the importance of regular use, streaming, and participation in structured aural rehabilitation programs. The podcast concludes with a discussion of efforts to increase patient access to cochlear implants.
