About MED-EL

We Help the World Hear Life Waves crashing on the beach. The lyrics of your favorite song. A baby talking for the first time. The world is filled with amazing sounds. For more than 30 years, we’ve been helping people hear them. As the leading hearing implant company, we’re passionate about bringing the sounds of life, laughter, loved ones, and music to people with hearing loss. It’s what we work for, and it’s what we believe in. Hearing Pioneers It’s been that way since 1977, when our CEO, Dr. Ingeborg Hochmair, pioneered the modern cochlear implant along with her husband Erwin. Since then, we have grown into a global company with over 2,400 brilliant minds from around the world, led by a management team with 450 years of experience between them. Our innovative spirit and commitment to research mean that today we offer hearing solutions for every type of hearing loss. Worldwide Support We’re headquartered in Innsbruck, Austria but our hearing solutions are available in over 130 countries worldwide. And with more than 30 regional offices, we’re always here to offer our care and support.
