Zainab Amjad's Story
Zainab Amjad, aged 6 years, suffers from congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss. After a year from her birth, when her parents noticed that she wasn’t responding to sounds, they took her for a checkup where she was diagnosed with SNL and advised for a cochlear implant surgery. She was referred to National Hospital and her cochlear implant was installed in the right ear under the supervision of Dr. Naveed Aslam on 09.06.2021. However this was not the end of her procedure. She was to visit soon for the placement of the external component of the device. For this purpose she visited National Hospital again on 26.07.2021 where the external component of the device was placed. She was discharged the same day. She is now responding to sounds. Zainab will start taking her appointments with the speech therapist very soon.
