I had my BAHA implant done at the same time as my translab procedure -- at House Ear in Los Angeles. This may be more the exception than the rule, as many, if not most, on this forum have had non-House surgeons who prefer to wait a period of time after the surgery -- maybe a few months or so? -- before doing the BAHA implant. I was delighted to be able to have "two surgeries in one," particularly since I live at a great distance from L.A.
But don't let that be a deal breaker. It's worth the wait, and if your doctor wants you wait a while, do what he says! People who've had the implant done later say that it's no big deal -- can be done under local or general anesthesia -- and is comparable to a dental procedure.
