On 15th July 2017, on the occasion of 25th anniversary of the first in Poland cochlear implantation in a deaf patient that had been performed by Prof. Henryk Skarżyński, Kajetany were visited by grateful patients and their families. Altogether nearly 2 thousand guests visited the World Hearing Center on that day. The most important point in the program of this great reunion was the attempt to beat the Guinness World Record ‘Meeting in one place and time of the largest number of people with hearing implants’ previously set in 2012 also in Kajetany. The attempt has been successful with the number of 601 people!
The Guinness World Record has been the finale of Jubilee celebrations in July – 25th anniversary of the first in Poland cochlear implantation in a deaf patient performed by Prof. Henryk Skarżyński, 15th anniversary of the first implantation restoring hearing in a patient with partial deafness performed by prof. Henryk Skarżyński and 20th anniversary of the program ‘Preservation of the existing preoperative residual hearing’.
