Subject: Cochlear Implant
Dear Dr. Juan Manuel
Next November 18 will be a year of having performed cochlear implant surgery in my left ear. The results have been very satisfactory, I regained hearing in a close to eighty percent of which would be considered normal.
Previously, despite using headphones, I could not meet the minimum needs for communication.
I am very pleased to have made this decision, despite the risks involved, especially age, because at that time was 83.
On this occasion, I wish you and the professionals who make up his team my appreciation for the attention and affection that I have received throughout the processprior to surgery and rehabilitation.
I authorize the use of this document, in the manner it deems most appropriate for the information of others who may be in a situation similar to mine.
With sentiments of esteem and appreciation, I remain.

Doctor Juan Manuel García Gómez,
Therefore I encourage everyone to leave the fear of surgery, because in reality for one as a patient is very easy to carry, no long-term negative consequences, as the recovery is very fast and does not involve many inconveniences. On the contrary, it brings very good results for personal life. I appreciate this testimony to Dr. Juan Manuel, his collaborators and his profession for their achievements and efforts and hope they are rewarded.
