Cochlear Implant Surgery
Cochlear implants represent the single biggest leap in technology where the sense of hearing is restored by a bionic solution. Children who are born deaf can now have their hearing restored by timely insertion of a cochlear implant into the organ for hearing, the cochlear. Children need to have the device implanted before the age of 5. Most children who are born deaf and have a cochlear implant inserted can soon attend school.
Centrum Foundation have been sponsoring children from poor families having congenital hearing impairment for this Cochlear Implant surgery. During the last three years several children were benefited by the Foundation and regained their hearing capabilities. This has life changing impact on the children whose families otherwise would not have been able to pursue such high cost procedure.
