New hybrid hearing device helps those who find hearing aids to be ineffective
By Charlie Patton Tue, Aug 19, 2014 @ 4:51 pm
Traditionally there have been two approaches to hearing loss: hearing aids to amplify sound for those who retained some hearing; and cochlear implants to restore some hearing to those who are totally deaf.
A new device, a Cochlear Nucleus Hybrid Implant System, has been approved by the FDA for use in people who have some hearing but have found hearing aids ineffective.
J. Douglas Green Jr., a neurotologist and founder of the Jacksonville Hearing & Balance Institute/The Hearing Center, calls the device “an extraordinary melding of technologies.”
The hybrid includes three elements: an implant that Green puts in place during a 90-minute outpatient procedure; a sound processor that converts high-frequency sounds to electric signals and sends them to the implant; and an acoustic component that functions like a hearing aid, amplifying low-frequency sounds.
The cochlear implant component restores the ability of people to hear high-pitched sound.
The hybrid “gives patients a more natural sound quality,” Green said. “People really like that. There is more clarity to the sounds.”
Green will offer free seminars about the implants: a dinner presentation from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday and a lunch presentation from noon-1:30 p.m. Wednesday at Hotel Indigo, 9840 Tapestry Park Circle.
While seminars are free, seating is limited and a reservation is required. Go to HearingHealthSeminar.com or call (877) 432-7844.

Dr. Green hosts Ambassador/General Consul Geoffrey I. Teneilabe and the Nigerian Delegation at JHBI
Friday, June 6, 2014
J. Douglas Green Jr., MD, FACS, hosted Nigerian diplomats at JHBI www.jhbi.org, who were in town attending the USA vs Nigeria soccer tournament at Jacksonville’s EverBank Field. The purpose of the JHBI and The Hearing Center tour and subsequent meeting was to introduce the visitors to the nonprofit organization, Hearing Help For Africa (HHFA), a 501(c)3 dedicated to giving the Gift of Hearing by surgically inserting cochlear implants into adults and children in need in Africa, especially Nigeria.
City of Jacksonville leaders, specifically Tony Hill, director of Federal Policy, and Betzy Santiago, Special Assistant to the Mayor/International Office, brought Ambassador Geoffrey I. Teneilabe, former Ambassador (Washington, DC), now Consul General of Nigeria (Atlanta, GA), and a Nigerian entourage, which included local Nigerian leaders, as well.
HHFA is JHBI’s 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to furthering the healing ministry of Christ in Africa through medical education, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the ear and related structures. Its goal is to improve the quality of life for Africans.
After touring The Hearing Center, the international guests were greeted by Dr. Green, his wife, Kelley, and JHBI staff members in the conference room. Here they joined Lori Rakita, AuD, who was online via WebEx with hospital staff from Jos, Nigeria, where Dr. Green travels during the year to perform cochlear implant surgery.
The Jos hospital staff was introduced to the Nigerian guests, and Dr. Green explained how he “remotely” calibrates cochlear implants that were surgically inserted via the Internet from his office half way around the world.
The following evening, Dr. Green was the guest of Mayor Alvin Brown in the Nigerian Suite at EverBank Stadium so he could meet Nigerian Ambassador Professor Adebowale Adefuye on the occasion of the Nigeria vs USA soccer game, the last before the 2014 World Cup.
Dr. Green hosts the Nigerian Delegation at JHBI to introduce them to Hearing Help For Africa, the non-profit dedicated to giving the Gift of Hearing to those in need in Africa.
