Umm-e-Hani Noor Badshah's Story
Since birth, Umm-e-Hani, a five-year-old from Timargira, had been experiencing sensorineural hearing loss. It wasn’t until she turned one that her parents became aware of her condition and took her to a local hospital. After consulting with doctors, Umm-e-Hani was diagnosed with deafness and advised to undergo Cochlear Implant Surgery.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Jawwad Ahmed at Ali Medical Centre in Islamabad on 9-9-2022, where the internal component of the cochlear implant was successfully installed. She was discharged after a day and returned six weeks later to have the external component fixed, gaining the ability to hear.
