Cochlear Implant Program
CMF’s Cochlear Implant Program has been founded with the support of Padmashree Dr. J.M. Hans, a leading ENT surgeon and pioneer in the field of Cochlear Implants. Dr. Hans has performed over 3000 cochlear implant surgeries and is a founder member of the Cochlear Implant Group of India.
Cochlear implant surgery is a life transforming procedure for children with severe hearing impairment. When performed at an early age (<5 years), the procedure allows restoration of hearing and therefore, of normal brain development.
The program has been funded with grants from ConCor (Container Corporation of India) and more recently, by HCL (Hindustan Computers Limited).
