Normally, with most of the patients a part of the jaw is reconstructed but in this case the complete lower jaw needed a replacement. The complete medical team comprising of multiple specialities planned a road map for the surgery and acquired a completely customized titanium lower jaw frame. In the 12 hour surgery performed in the modular OT complex of Peerless Hospital, the patient went through free flap (bone from leg). Post operative period was also a challenge to not just help the patient fight infection as he was diabetic but to also rehabilitate him for speech and feeding. In addition to the team approach of the consultants, the administration ironed out many administrative hassles for this patient from Hooghly Metcoke of Tata Steel , and was able to deliver the case in a price much lower than what was estimated.”

This is completely reversible through the latest medical wonder of Cochlear Implants, in which a person who has drifted to a silent world can be brought back to the world of sound.”

“Cochlear implant is an artificial complex electronic device made of titanium, which is surgically placed in the inner sensory organ called cochlear”. It converts the sound into electrical impulses and stimulates the nerve of hearing and the brain, hence providing sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing resulting in making that individual to HEAR and learn to TALK. Peerless was the FIRST HOSPITAL to undergo COCHLEAR IMPLANT in EASTERN INDIA. Since 2013 the treatment is available at Peerless Hospital on regular basis. Through the screening process, hearing loss can be identified at any age group (it can be done even in NEWBORNS). This test is painless, takes few minutes and cheap. If an individual is diagnosed with severe to profound hearing loss, COCHLEAR IMLANT is planned accordingly. Cochlear Implantation does not end with the surgery alone, but the journey of hearing starts with it.“The transformation from meaningless sounds or noise to meaningful words are done by very experienced audiologist in Peerless Hospital who is a name of repute for post operative rehabilitation of these patients” said Dr. Manojendra Narayan Bhattacharyya.
