Basam’s Success Story of Cochlear Implant Surgery


Basam Iqbal's Story

In the small town of Lower Dir, a young boy, Basam Iqbal was about to embark on a transformative journey towards a world filled with sound and communication. At the tender age of 2, Basam faced the challenge of sensorineural hearing loss, a condition that impeded his ability to experience the beauty of sound. But Basam and his family were determined to overcome this obstacle and sought the help of medical experts at the Institute of Medical Sciences in Gambat.

On a significant day, the 7th of December 2023, he was admitted to the hospital in anticipation of a life-altering surgical procedure. Under the skilled guidance of Dr. Maqbool Ahmed, a highly respected surgeon, Basam underwent a groundbreaking right-sided cochlear implant surgery. This innovative procedure utilized a cochlear implant, specifically designed to restore hearing function in individuals with severe hearing loss.

The surgery was a resounding success, bringing a glimmer of hope to Basam and his loved ones. After a brief period of recovery, Basam was discharged from the hospital on the 8th of December 2023, with a satisfactory condition and renewed optimism for a vibrant future filled with the wonders of sound.

But the journey towards complete hearing restoration had only just begun for Basam. Four weeks after the initial surgery, an external component of the cochlear implant was installed, further enhancing his ability to perceive sound. To fully harness the benefits of the implant, Basam embarked on a comprehensive speech therapy program, tailored to his unique needs. This program aimed to develop his communication skills, enabling him to fully integrate into a world where spoken language thrived.

The success of Basam’s transformative journey would not have been possible without the unwavering support and boundless generosity of compassionate donors. Through their selfless contributions, regardless of their size, they played a pivotal role in facilitating Basam’s access to the necessary medical treatments and interventions. Their kindness not only granted Basam the gift of hearing but also filled his family’s hearts with immeasurable gratitude.
