My sister knows this guy so I will post his link. I think that most attention is given to the successful implants. Maybe because most are successful but I think advertising gives people an overall view that probably isn't objective. The advertisers always show smiling faces etc.

I have a family member who had a successful CI and the alternative is deafness. There are failed surgeries with so many other issues, I know that.

What is the success rate? Let's pretend it's 90% which is pretty good in healthcare. If I was a baseball player batting 900 then every MLB baseball team would be drooling over me. But for surgery, when you fall into that unfortunate 10%, THAT IS 100% FOR YOU. You don't care about that 90% that did fine. This is the reality of statistics that most patients don't realize. Everyone has to understand that you might be that guy that it doesn't work out for.
