That’s why this operation

This is the method by which the child’s entire hearing power is artificially transmitted to the child’s brain. Cochlear implant surgery is implanted in the child’s ear through a minor operation. After that it is operated by the specialist and molded in the listening position. This process is initiated during the operation itself. After this, by doing mapping of hearing from time to time for two or two and a half years, the child’s hearing ability is cured. It is worth mentioning that after cochlear implant surgery, children get 100 percent hearing and 90 percent ability to speak. Three such children are born in one thousand, who can neither speak nor hear.
