'The Young and the Restless' Character Receives Cochlear Implant, Renewed Hope

What: "The Young and the Restless" character Devon Hamilton (Bryton McClure) will soon hear the world in a whole new way. Today, Devon received a cochlear implant, an implanted medical device that will functionally restore his hearing.

Tune in as Devon comes out of surgery and his cochlear implant is activated bringing the harmonious sounds of life back to his ears, and turning silence into renewed hope for the college music student.

When: Mon., Nov. 20 Devon is prepped for cochlear implant surgery
Tues., Nov. 21 Devon comes out of surgery
Wed., Dec. 6 Devons cochlear implant device is activated, or turned on

Where: CBS Television Network
12:30 1:30 PM; 11:00 AM 12 Noon, ET/PT

Why: When the storyline of the daytime drama left Devon completely deaf, he was challenged to adjust to the sudden silence. Told by doctors that a cochlear implant was his only option to ever hear again, Devon knew that the surgery was something he had to do.

The Young and the Restless is sending a powerful message about cochlear implants and their ability to help maximize hearing potential, said Jim Miller, President of Advanced Bionics Auditory Division, a leading innovator of technologies to treat deafness, and the donator of Devons cochlear implant device.
