Cochlear Announces Milestone in Hearing Restoration With 120,000 Nucleus(R) Cochlear Implants
Date:7/25/2008

this technology, yet less than 10 percent of those who qualify actually have a cochlear implant. It is important that we educate and inform the general public about this life changing technology."

When asked what she is most looking forward to after receiving her implants, Susan Grossman responded, "I'm really excited to be able to do everything that I did before without having to think about whether I'll be able to hear."

Since the first commercial implant in 1982, cochlear implants have become the standard of care for people who have severe to profound hearing loss. Approximately 400 institutions in the United States now provide this advanced technology. This technology is covered by the majority of private carriers as well as by Medicare and Medicaid for appropriate candidates.

To commemorate this milestone, Cochlear will launch a Web page to celebrate Susan's activation. Cochlear is inviting other recipients, family members, friends and professional partners to join Susan by sharing the details of their experiences with sound via an Interactive map of North America at: http://www.CochlearAmericas.com/Susan.

About Susan Grossman

Seventy-two year-old Susan Grossman began to loose her hearing, in her right ear, in her 30s. Over time, her hearing loss steadily grew worse, eventually leaving her almost deaf on both ears. Unable to be helped sufficiently by hearing aids, like many of the estimated 1 in 10 Americans with hearing loss, Susan made the decision to receive cochlear implants in both ears (bilateral implantation) and is looking forward to hearing the voices of her friends and family again.
