We met Shannon Gordon when she posted a video of her son, Davin, trying his Pontos on abutments for the first time. Shannon shared Davin’s story with us, and now we’d like to share with you too.
“Davin was born bilateral microtia and atresia. He has had bilateral canaloplasty, and Medpor. Davin received his first bone anchored hearing system (BAHS) at 7 weeks old. Two years ago we upgraded to bilateral Ponto Pluses. What an amazing transformation! On February 5, 2016, he had the surgery at U of M hospital. This video is of him receiving his Pontos on the abutments for the first time, 3 months after surgery. He loves them! Thank you Oticon for an amazing product and allowing my son to have the best hearing option out there!”
The video below captured his reaction to wearing his Ponto Pluses on abutments for the first time—3 months after his surgery.
Recently, while riding in the car with his mom, Shannon, he asked, “Is there a window open?” His mom told him no. He replied, “I can hear the outside when we drive!” This is something Shannon never realized he couldn’t hear before.
