Patient’s hearing is restored thanks to cochlear implant

Julia Conkin suffered a childhood bout with the flu that triggered progressive hearing loss. Matt Kircher, MD, an ear, nose and throat surgeon at Loyola, implanted a cochlear implant in a one-hour outpatient surgery. She now is able to hear conversations and listen to music without the use of a hearing aid.
