My dad is 97 years old, very bright mentally, but can't hear anything. He's used many different hearing aids to no avail. Are they doing ear drum transplants yet?

This is Dr. David

no, they are not doing ear drum transplants.

but they can do cochlear implants to help with hearing,

but at his age, his might be too old to undergo a procedure like cochlear implants.

do you have any other questions?
