12 years old Thiam Abdoulaye from Guinea Returns with a Happy face after having Urethroplasty in India

Patient's Father sharing his experience about Urethroplasty


Thiam Abdoulaye from Guinea had a happy face and a wide smile while returning to his home country. 12 years old Thiam had urinary leakage problem since 2016. He was not able to live his life free. He could not play, run or do anything comfortably. His father Thiam Bocar also took him to a known urologist in Guinea to get him treated. The urologist conducted all the investigations and the reports revealed that the walls of the urethra were damaged and the patient would need surgery to repair the walls. His father decided to get the surgery done. The symptoms were relieved for a while but recurred back.


This was when Thiam Bocar planned to take his son to India for better treatment. While searching for the best urologists in India, he came to know about Vaidam Health and posted a query on their website. Shortly, he received a call back from one of the case managers, Aparna Kochhar, who shared the reports with some of the eminent urologists and got the needful opinion. She also discussed several other aspects with the family related to cost, accommodation, and all other services. Soon after they decided to come to India on 20th December 2018.

The patient was picked up from the airport and taken to the hotel. Thereafter, the appointment was scheduled at W Pratiksha Hospital, Gurgaon. During the appointment, the urologist, Dr. Shalabh Agarwal went through a detailed medical history of the patient. He carefully listened to all the signs and symptoms from the beginning and ordered further investigations. The reports revealed that he would need a repeat surgery to repair the walls of the urethra. The pre-surgical examination was conducted and the surgery was scheduled after a few days.


The surgery was carried out successfully. The patient stayed in the hospital for a few days for observation and then discharged. The patient finally went back home with a happy face and a huge relief. Vaidam Health wishes him great health and a long life ahead.
