Trial surgery at UNC Hospitals allows deaf toddler to hear first words

Auditory brain stem implants already have been available for adults. When the Clamps heard about an FDA-approved trial for children at the UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, they jumped at the chance to participate. The surprise on 3-year-old Grayson Clamp's face in the video is priceless. His mouth opens wide as he points to the person in front of him speaking. It was the first time Grayson had heard sound.
