Umama Habib's Story
Umama Habib, 3.5 years old, had sensorineural hearing loss since birth. In order to develop her sense of hearing, she was advised to have a cochlear implant surgery. Her operation was performed by Dr. Naveed Aslam on 30-09-2020 in National Hospital & Medical Center, Lahore. The internal component of the implant was fixed in this surgery behind Umama’s ear. She recovered well from the procedure and was discharged after one day of hospital stay. She was 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 Ikram on 22-11-2020. Umama has started hearing and responding to sounds. She is on regular follow ups by the audiologist.
