Prof. Dr. Dr. Dr.h.c. Ernst Lehnhardt passed away

It is with deep regret to announce that

Prof. Ernst Lehnhardt

passed away on December 1st in his 88th year of life.

One of his major concerns was to ensure adequate (re)habilitation after cochlear implantation and this was decisive for the establishment of the foundation.

We will continue to work in this spirit and thus contribute to lead deaf and hard of hearing children into the world of hearing.

  1. I was very sorry when I heard this sad news.
    I had the honour in a certain period to meet with Professor Lehnhardt quite often. I recognized him as an excellent surgeon with authority to teach the others as well as a friendly man with a wide heart. Among his many other good traits, I highly appreciated the courage he showed both in personal and in professional life. It’s really a great loss.
