Ellen goes from hearing aids to a Hybrid™ Implant
Ellen noticed a gradual decline in her hearing, and despite having the best hearing aids and all the gadgets, she was not able to hear with the same clarity. Her hearing loss affected her self-esteem. She withdrew from public outings, relied on her husband to be her interpreter at restaurants and on the phone, and could no longer hear or understand her grandchildren.
However, Ellen discovered hope when her doctor recommended the Nucleus® HybridTM Implant System,* which is designed to replace the high frequencies that she had lost. Upon activation, Ellen heard birds chirping again, she understood her grandchildren and she was able to rediscover activities.
