3-year-old Grayson Clamp of Charlotte, NC is the first child to receive an auditory brain stem implant. The surgery, performed by Craig Buchman, MD, Professor Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, and Matthew Ewend, MD, Chair, Department of Neurosurgery, is the first of its kind performed in the United States as part of an FDA investigational trial.

The device was originally used for patients with deafness due to auditory nerve tumors, which impact hearing, but is now being considered to help restore hearing in children.
