SRCC Children's Hospital launches audiology department

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

SRCC Children’s Hospital launched its Audiology Department and Hearing Services recently. Post-operative audiology services to needy patients will also be provided.

The department team consists of pediatric ENT experts like Dr. Prabodh Karnik, Dr. Kamruddin Ezzy, Dr. Kamal Parasram, Dr. Manohar Shaan and Dr. Arpit Sharma under the leadership of Dr Milind Kirtane, who says that infants and younger children with early diagnosis of hearing loss stand to benefit the most from an early intervention promising normal growth as a normal child. This centre will cater to detection of hearing loss in newborns, infants and young children.

Dr. Prabodh Karnik, Sr. Consultant - ENT, SRCC Children’s Hospital said, “Housed in a scientifically created sound-treated silent environment, it boasts of modern equipment to recognise, accurately calibrate and document hearing loss in children from age of one day to 18 years. Pure tone audiometer, tympanometer, OAE analyzer and hand-held ABR equipment operated by trained professionals will be available. In treatment of ear and hearing disorders, reliable measurement of hearing loss is absolutely essential. We hope to benefit a large cross-section of society.”

Vikram Tannan, Director of Geltec Pvt. Ltd and chief guest at the launch, said, “SRCC Children’s Hospital is a rapidly growing pediatric multi-speciality hospital in Mumbai and offers every critical healthcare service under one roof. We at Geltec Pvt Ltd are very obliged to be associated with such a large healthcare organisation which has established itself in a very short span. The medical equipment is world-class and will be beneficial to the needy children.”

SRCC Children’s Hospital is managed by Narayana Health at Haji Ali Park, with 207 beds, out of which 87 have been allocated for Multispeciality Critical Care for newborns and adolescents.
