A very excited Gerrit Snyman tells his story

Gerrit has been deaf since the age of one year. He has been living his life with hearing aids, but never gave up hope for a miracle. He has two normal hearing children, which made communication with them very difficult. His hearing disability also had a negative impact on his work and productivity in general. He decided on a cochlear implant to live a quality and normal life as he didn’t benefit from his hearing aids any longer, and was approved as a successful candidate to receive this miracle operation.

We are delighted to report that Gerrit’s cochlear was successfully switched on, on 31 May 2016 and in his own words he was very excited to report back the next day about hearing his dog fell in the swimming pool…

Happy hearing Gerrit! Enjoy all the new, wonderful sounds around you.
