High tech cochlear implant surgery done here

Sri Lanka’s first Nucleus freedom series simultaneous bilateral cochlear implant surgery was successfully performed on a 2 1/2 year old child at the Sri Jayawardhanapura Hospital.

The team of doctors led by senior consultant ENT surgeon Dr. Sanjeewani Rupasinghe performed the surgery and implanted the Cochlear Nucleus freedom contour advance implant with wireless N7 speech processor which is the most technologically advanced device available in the world at present.

Access to hearing and hearing healthcare is more important now than ever.

Hearing connects us to people and access to sound for those with hearing loss is important for connection as we continue to socially distance ourselves to mitigate this virus. Dr. Rupasinghe and the entire cochlear team at Wickramarachchi Hearing Care must be acknowledged for the commitment shown to perform the bilateral cochlear implant surgery despite the current situation.
