The doctor recommended a cochlear implant surgery for Horain Bakhtiar. For this purpose, she was referred to Ali Medical Complex, Islamabad and her cochlear implant was installed by Dr. Jawwad on 25.11.2021 and her internal component of the Cochlear Implant was fixed. She was discharged in a stable condition after one day of hospital stay. She will have her external component fixed after some time.
