We had the opportunity to meet our third otolaryngologist this week. Dr. Richard Kang was recruited to Columbus Children't Hospital from California, where he established a large cochlear implant clinic. He is a very agressive doctor in this field, meaning that he is very open to the newest procedures, bilateral cochlear implantation.
We had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Kang for over an hour, mainly about Drew's diagnosis and the path Dr. Kang feels we should take for Drew. We both felt very comfortable with Dr. Kang's bias in this field: he implants children so they may live in the hearing world. We feel very confidant that Dr. Kang has the same goal for Drew as we do; to be a happy and healthy boy, living and communicating in the hearing world.
