Two patients- a male baby 9 months old and a girl 19 years old had cochlear implantation Surgery done under the auspices of Padmashree. Prof. Mohan Kameswaran in our department of ENT headed by Prof. Dr. P.K. Purushothaman.
Our Management, SRMCH&RC were extremely kind enough to extend their helping hand as a part of their numerous charity works by sponsoring the cochlear implant and surgical cost which would collectively cost any patient around 7.5 lakhs. The patient hailed from a very poor family from Tanjore, where her father was a daily wage labourer.
The other patient baby Shehzed Umir belonged to Bangladesh marking our Institution’s International reach.
Both the patients are doing well in their respective places.
