Barnabas Vangerwua undertook the audiological assessment to determine the candidacy of the patient for cochlear implant surgery.

Reddington Chief Operating Officer, Emmanuel Matthews, said the procedure took place at the hospital.

“For these types of cases to take place with more regularity, the funding needs to be available or the cost subsidised, as only in this way can more cases be done and the skill set needed transferred effectively to Nigerian clinicians,” he said.
