RUSH: Folks, I got to do something today that I have always wanted to do and have never done before. I was permitted to watch surgery. I have always wanted to be in an OR. I’ve been fascinated, and always wanted to do it. Today I had a chance. I saw a doctor perform cochlear implant surgery on a patient from Winter Haven, Florida.
It’s about an hour and a half, the prep work and all. We got there at 7:30 and walked out about 9:15. It was the most amazing thing. You know, I have a cochlear implant, and so I was curious to see it. I’d been told what the procedure involved by my doctor, whenever this was, eight years ago that I did this. I don’t even remember now.
