"From the moment I put my Osia® on, I could hear 360 degrees again — which I couldn't hear for 23 years. It was a very emotional experience because I didn’t realize what I was missing."

- Doug, Osia® recipient

Cochlear™ Osia® System allows Doug to feel connected and present

Doug’s hearing issues had always been chronic; between infections, tubes, and damage to the three inner ear bones in his early childhood, he was left with only 5-10% of his hearing in his right ear.

Finally, a routine visit, Doug’s doctor presented the option of the Cochlear™ Osia® System with such confidence that he had no inhibitions about the surgery or the decision to move forward with Cochlear Americas.

Receiving a bone conduction implant changed Doug’s quality of life across the board from improving his relationship with his wife and family, down to life’s simple pleasures, like hearing birds chirping and the wind blowing.
