Cochlear's Osia 2 hearing implant system receives FDA clearance

Reading link it’s not clear to me if surgery for this new cochlear implant (by chance) bypasses the need to cut or damage someone’s auditory nerve. I think the next big step in CI’s will be (some how) keeping what ever limited residual hearing someone has left while still adding a fully operations CI.

This is a bone anchored implant, it’s not a cochlear implant (it’s an implant by Cochlear the company). It’s for folks who don’t have the ability to conduct sound through the eardrum and middle ear bones to the inner ear.
