Muhammad Abdullah's Story
Muhammad Abdullah, 3 years old, had sensorineural hearing loss since birth. In order to develop his sense of hearing, he was advised to have a cochlear implant surgery. His operation was performed by Dr. Naveed Aslam on 05-12-2020 in National Hospital & Medical Center, Lahore. The internal component of the implant was fixed in this surgery behind Abdullah’s ear. He recovered well after the procedure and was discharged after one day of hospital stay. He was also given follow up advice to come back after 6 weeks for fixation of the external component of this device. The external component has also been installed now by Dr. Atif on 25-01.2021. Abdullah has started hearing and responding to sounds. He is on regular follow ups by the audiologist.
