This is Priya Channa.
My son Nivedh who is presently 21months old, has been diagnosed with bilateral profound hearing loss. He has been advised for bilateral implant for regaining his hearing capability.
Cochlear implant is a sophisticated ear surgery unlike hearing aids which made sounds louder.. Cochlea implant by pass the damaged hair cells of the inner ear (cochlear) to provide sound signals to the brain. The cost of this surgery is huge.
I have got the 1st implant done in his right ear. Name of the implant is CI 24 RE(ST) + CP 802 = 5.80 lacs. I am from Lucknow and have got the surgery done at javitri hospital by Dr Isha Tyagi on 20th April'17 . Surgery cost was rs 60000.
am planning for the next implant within an year.. Want to give a better life to my son the second implant will be the same one but due to shortage of funds I have taken estimate from the government hospital.
I am attaching a copy of it. I would request all of you to help in any way you can to see that my little prince gets his hearing ability back. Surgery has to be done as soon as possible.
Even a smallest contribution you make will mean a lot to him.
