Dr. Kato to perform the first bilateral, simultaneous cochlear implant in the Coachella Valley

April 27, 2011

Cochlear implantation provides hearing to deafened individuals, and patients are able to hear their friends, family, and the world around them.  Dr. Kato is the valley’s only cochlear implant surgeon, and has already changed the lives of many profoundly deaf and hard of hearing individuals.  She will perform the first bilateral, simultaneous implant in May, at Eisenhower Medical Center.
