Happy New Year!

Over the holidays, Zoe Holmes in Sheffield became the first patient in the UK to be fitted with the Baha Attract – the world’s first magnetic Baha System. The treatment gained attention from BBC:

Royal Hallamshire Hospital patient Zoe Holmes, the first person in the country to be offered the new hearing aid, said being able to hear from both sides after so long was “emotional”.

The magnet on the hearing aid attaches to another that is surgically implanted under the scalp behind the ear.

The device conducts sound vibrations through the bone directly to the inner ear.

Ear, nose and throat consultant Mr Jaydip Ray said: “The patient’s involvement in the aftercare is minimal or nil.”
