Tarun’s new-found confidence pleases parents

19-year old Tarun experienced many health issues as a child, including hearing loss. After receiving his Baha® 5 implant, Tarun’s level of confidence and social skills have increased.

19-year-old Tarun had multiple health issues as a child and hearing loss was one of them. Initially fitted with hearing aids, his family soon realized it was not helping, given the gravity of his hearing loss. 
Post the Baha® 5 implant, there was a huge transition in Tarun’s personality. From being affected socially and staying reclusive, he has grown to be more confident. While he wants to grow up to be a textile designer, today, he also “wants to be the guy who can do everything.”
