Early Times Report
KATRA, Feb 24: In a heartening display of compassion and social responsibility, the Shrine Board at Katra has once again demonstrated its commitment to positively impacting lives by sponsoring cochlear implant surgeries for two children, Mehak Rafiq and Nooraiz. The surgeries, performed at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Superspecialty Hospital (SMVDNSH), mark yet another milestone in the Board's ongoing efforts to bring the gift of hearing to those in need.
Mehak Rafiq, a young girl from south Kashmir, faced the challenges of a difficult inner ear anatomy, known as IP 2 (Mondini's deformity), making her case particularly complex. Under the expert care of Dr. Rohan Gupta, Consultant ENT, and Dr. Sunil Kotwal, Consultant ENT, the surgery was successfully completed, offering Mehak the opportunity to experience the world of sound for the first time. The sponsorship of Mehak's surgery by the Shrine Board provided immense relief to her family, who were unable to afford the costly procedure.
Expressing gratitude for the support provided by the Board, Mehak's father, Sh. Rafiq, lauded the philanthropic efforts aimed at helping those in need. Dr. Gopal Sharma, Chief Administrative Officer of SMVDNSH, emphasized the Board's commitment to reaching out to economically disadvantaged patients, guided by the vision of Chairman (LG, UT of J&K) and the dynamic leadership of the CEO.
The second surgery was performed on one-year-old Nooraiz, whose parents chose SMVDNSH as their treatment destination. This bilateral surgery, a rare accomplishment in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir, underscores the hospital's expertise and commitment to providing comprehensive care to its patients. Dr. Rohan highlighted the significant positive outcomes associated with early cochlear implant surgeries, urging hearing health professionals to raise awareness about treatment options available to families.
On the occasion of International Cochlear Implant Day, SMVDNSH plans to conduct a robust awareness program in Srinagar, aimed at educating the public about available treatment options for hearing loss. With the unwavering support of the Shrine Board, the clinical capabilities of the hospital, and the active involvement of patients' families, the fight against deafness continues with renewed vigor and purpose.
