Jo is the first girl to receive a custom 3D printed ear implant in Australia for microtia. She also received a bone anchored hearing aid implant in the same operation to address her atresia.
Last Monday another young Australian boy received a 3D printed ear implant. While this is the second for Australia, he also a “first” because he received a bone anchored hearing aid implant during the same operation. Usually done over 2 separate operations, this procedure is the first of its kind in Australia.
