15-Year-Old Sahaud Aude from Cameroon Saved Herself from a Stubborn Scoliosis in India

15-year-old Sahaud Aude from Cameroon had a simple life with her family and friends as any teenager of her age would. But she suffered from scoliosis, a congenital disease in which the normal structure of the spine is bent over time deforming the stout posture of the human body. Not prominent in her early years the bent aggravated as each year passed and she inclined more on the left side of her body till standing up or sitting down became onerous. Here, Aude shares her experience of restoring the correct shape of her spine again in India:



Where did you have your treatment in India?

Artemis Hospital in Gurgaon was where I had my treatment. A scoliosis correction surgery was performed on my spine by Dr. Hitesh Garg.


How do you feel post surgery?

I feel so happy and so relieved. I cannot express in words how ecstatic I was when after a couple of days post the scoliosis surgery, I flexed my back and stood up straight. I pay my heartiest gratitude to Dr. Garg for providing me with such a phenomenal treatment.  My spine has been restored to its natural form and structure. Nothing can be more memorable and special to me than this. Artemis Hospital has all the facilities that are prerequisite for a spine treatment and their patient care team and all the staffs are excellent.



How did you find out about Artemis Hospital?

My mother and I looked for treatment options online. We were really desperate to find a proper hospital where scoliosis treatment was available and panicked because my back was not in a good condition at all. The thought of my back bending as each day passed sent chills down my spine. But fortunately we encountered Vaidam Health’s website and thereafter was thoroughly helped by them. That’s how we got to know about Artemis Hospital.


In what other ways did Vaidam assist you?

Vaidam’s case manager helped us a lot in finding the hospital that would suit our budget. There were some logistic problems that we faced regarding the visa extension but Dr. Amarroop has helped us a lot in overcoming such nuances. Vaidam’s response is very prompt. I remember my case manager calling me immediately after I have submitted my enquiry in their website. A significant thing that I realized while I interacted with them before and also during my medical trip to India is that they would never lead you on and would always provide you with the right piece of advice. The whole team of Vaidam is very warm, cordial and responsible. My mother and I had a really nice time when we visited their office. I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart for their genuine services.
