Last June 1, 2019, Gruppo Hearing was proud to support and assist 2-year old, Javier M. Lopez, with his left Cochlear Implementation surgery, under the team of cochlear implant surgeon, Dr. Charlotte M. Chiong.
This was also a milestone for Medicus Medical Center in Iloilo City, as this was their first ever cochlear implant surgery, held at their esteemed facility. Gruppo Hearing was made present by attending audiologist, Mr. James Vincent Mallillin, throughout the surgery.
Gruppo Hearing congratulates the Lopez Family for entrusting to us and choosing us for the start of the hearing journey of Javier. We look forward to your switch-on and future mappings! We’re very happy for you!!! **Switch-on was later done last July 2, 2019 by Cochlear clinical champion for Indonesia and Philippines, and clinical audiologist,.Ms. Ruth Mariano**
Congratulations also, to Dr. Charlotte Chiong in pioneering and leading the first cochlear implant surgery at Medicus Medical Center. And of course, congratulations to Medicus Medical Center on your first successful cochlear implant surgery!
