About Cochlear Implant:
Hearing loss is one of the most challenging health and social issues! Being able to communicate defines us and underlies our ability to function in the world: to relate to family, friends and partners, have a job, lead productive lives and maintain our health and wellbeing through social connections. The number of people who could benefit from cochlear implants in India is significant. In India, 63 million people (6.3%) suffer from significant auditory loss. Four in every 1000 children suffer from severe to profound hearing loss. They can now address hearing loss through world-leading technology including hearing aids and cochlear implants but many more people could benefit than currently do.
Benefits of cochlear implants include:
- Allow the person to lead an independent life, like a normal person.
- Be able to communicate socially without any discrimination and also gain employment.
- Eliminate the risk of associated health issues such as dementia and mental health
Pinnacle Hospitals – ENT department under the leadership of Dr G. Rakesh has successfully done 5 COCHLEAR IMPLANT surgeries in people who were not able to hear even with best of the hearing aids in last one year.
