On 26th April 2018 our Karachi based officer Irfan Victor took Aleeza (1 year 10 months) to Aga Khan hospital for a consultation with Dr Zaheer the prosthetist. Dr Zaheer has assessed Aleeza and has advised positively for the addition of an artificial limb.
Dr Zaheer then held a second consultation visit on Friday 27th April 2018. During the consultation it was assessed that baby Aleeza needs four to five consultation visits before installation of an artificial limb.The artificial limb will need to be changed on a quarterly basis till she reaches 14 years of age because her body is still in growing significantly. During the consultation Aleeza was assessed for an artificial limb and a casting was taken for size and a tolerance test was undertaken for the treatment.
Irfan Victor, said:
“We took Aleeza to Aga Khan Hospital to have a consultation with Dr Zaheer, he took the size of her leg and prepared for a stump through a plaster cast. Once we raise the funds necessary she will have a trial fitting for an artificial limb made of a cast and plaster. If Aleeza adapts well to the artificial cast test, which lasts for about 10 days during which she assessed on how well the stump responds to the prosthetic, she will then have the artificial limb implanted.”
