In August 1978 surgeons from the University of Melbourne carried out a cochlear implant operation at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital on a totally deaf patient who had lost all hearing following a head injury. The operation involved inserting an array of 20 separately insulated electrode wires along the fluid-filled scala tympani of the inner ear and then implanting an attached receiver-stimulator device in the mastoid bone behind the ear.
