Our doctors are among the first to offer Osia for hearing loss

The Osia system: implant and processor.

Otolaryngologists at Washington University School of Medicine are among the first in the Midwest to implant the Osia System to improve hearing for patients with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, and single-sided sensorineural deafness. During an early introduction of the new system this winter, Jacques Herzog, MD, Cameron Wick, MD, and Craig Buchman, MD, have provided the Osia to five patients.

“The Osia platform for bone conduction is dramatically changing the way we manage many of our patients with complicated forms of conductive hearing loss,” said Dr. Herzog.

The active bone conduction provided by the Osia, which is placed under the skin just behind the ear, provides significant improvement in clarity, as well as increased power

“The Osia platform is truly a game-changing technology that we are now able to provide for our patients affected by this challenging problem,” said Dr. Herzog.
