Florida man speaks to ABC News about life transformation after Esteem implant.
David Fink of Boynton Beach, Florida was quick to come to terms with his hearing loss. When he noticed in a conference room meeting that he had difficulty hearing other participants at the other end of the table, he purchased his first hearing aid that same day. While a series of hearing aids had a minimal effect on his hearing, Fink describes a “dramatic” change attributed to the implantation of the Esteem device, which helped him restore 80% of his hearing. Dr. John Li, an ENT physician with The Laser and Surgery Center of Palm Beach describes the implantable device as a “technological breakthrough,” and he is the only doctor doing the surgery in Florida.

Disclaimer: Individual results may vary. The reporter notes that the battery can last 5 to 9 years. If an Esteem patient is continuously exposed to excessively loud sounds and is using the highest gain settings, battery life can be reduced. Bench testing under these conditions demonstrated that battery life could be as short as 2.8 years. Scuba Diving should not exceed depths of 33 feet with the Esteem® Hearing Implant.
