Children who are born with hearing impairments are not able to speak because they cannot hear any type of sound. Parents are not aware that due to the children’s hearing impairment, their children are not speaking. But if these children are brought to hospital at the right time and if the cochlear implant surgery is done at the right time, then the child can start hearing and start speaking, which changes the whole life of the child. Under Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram(RBSK) Cochlear Implant surgery was performed for more than 20 children at Nelson Hospital, Dantholi, Nagpur.
Children below 18 years of age with some cardiac defects are operated under RashtriyaBalSwasthyaKaryakram (RBSK) at Nelson Hospital free of cost. More than 40 children have been operated on under the RBSK scheme at Nelson Hospital.
