Westchester doctors give Pine Bush toddler the gift of sound
Surgeons at Northern Westchester Hospital completed the two-part cochlear implant procedure on a Pine Bush toddler, who can now hear for the first time.
Last month, Dr. William Fitzgibbon and a team of surgeons at Northern Westchester Hospital put a transmitter into the ear of 20-month-old Ava Gersick ? a twin born with nerve damage who would not be able to hear without an operation.
Doctors have turned on the transmitter and Ava is learning about sounds and hearing her parents and her twin sister?s voices for the first time. Related Story
