Felistus From Kenya gets Treated for Vitiligo at Artemis Hospital


Felistus from Kenya came to India after a long string of treatments in her home country. When she started noticing white patches on her skin which were progressing in size, she consulted a nearby doctor. There she was diagnosed with Vitiligo.

“In addition to having Vitiligo, I was also stressed out because of a growth in my thyroid gland. My thyroid hormone levels were greatly fluctuating.”

Felistus was really anxious about his never-ending health issues. She went through several investigative procedures such as Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy. The doctors told her that she had thyroid cancer, which made her even more stressed. As her treatment was not reaching anywhere, she decided to travel out of Kenya to get medical services.

While exploring the internet to look out for the best doctors, she came across Vaidam health and contacted them through the website. She then came in contact with Dr. Savin Yadav who provided her with an estimate quote for her treatments. After doing some research about the hospitals, Felistus finally decided to visit Artemis hospital, Gurgaon

All the arrangements were made with the help of the Vaidam Team. One of the team members arranged the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital and applied for the online medical visa. The Visa was received by Felistus within 72 hours of its application. Soon after, she booked her tickets to fly to India. Every other arrangement including her accommodation, appointment with the doctor and commuting to the hospital was also done by the Vaidam team.

Shortly after reaching India, Felistus met Dr. Biswajyoti Hazarika, who is a senior surgical oncologist at Artemis hospital. He evaluated everything carefully, asked several questions, and sent her for further investigations. When all the reports came back, the doctor revealed the good news that there was no cancer found. There was a small growth in the gland for which she was advised to undergo thyroidectomy. Soon the surgery performed after which she was sent for the vitiligo treatment. After taking a few treatment sessions, her white patches went away.

Felistus finally went back to Kenya, with a wide smile on her face. She got rid of Vitiligo and also got clear with the false cancer diagnosis made in Kenya. 

Vaidam Health wishes a happy and prosperous life ahead.
