July 2017 Daily Mail Australia

Raymond KellyRaymond Kelly, from New Malden, south west London became one of the world's oldest patients to be fitted with a new type of cochlear implant. Having suffered from progressive hearing loss since childhood, it became so bad that people would have to write down what they wanted to say to him.

But a two-hour operation to fit a much thinner implant at St George's Hospital, Tooting, has transformed the former aerospace engineer's life.  Recent tests have proved it was a success, meaning Mr Kelly can hear his ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren for the first time.

Mr Kelly said: 'The implant has changed my life. It used to be so frustrating having to get people to write down what they wanted to say to me. 'Now I can hear my family's voices, and listen to the radio and birds singing. I couldn't be happier. Surgeons placed the cochlear implant, which is much thinner than previous models and 'not as disruptive', under the skin behind his ear.
