Evanz Macondzo is a 2 years 9 months old boy from Mozambique, who had bilateral cryptorchidism. As per his father Mr. Celso Fernando Macondzo, Evans had been battling these struggles right after his birth since 2015. Usually, the testicles descend into the scrotal bag at 8 months of pregnancy. In cases of Cryptorchidism, the testicles fail to descend; however, most of the cases are self-corrected within few months after birth.
The case of Evans Macondzo did not correct by itself. This started causing worry to his parents. Soon they consulted a urologist. After conducting all the investigations, the urologist concluded that Evans needed surgery to pull down the testicles into the scrotal sac. The routine investigations and blood tests were done to check if the patient was able to take the surgery. When the reports came back normal, the bilateral orchidopexy surgery was conducted in April 2017. However, only the position of right testicle was corrected during the surgery. Due to constricted blood vessels, the left testicle was could not be pulled into the scrotum.
Hence, Evans’s parents wanted to have his treatment completed. While searching on the internet, they found out about Vaidam Health. His father put a query on the website, after which he was contacted by the case manager, Heena Mehta. Heena thereafter assisted the family in everything from deciding the best pediatric urologist in India to completing all the paperwork that was essential for their travel. Evans and his father finally arrived in India on 11 December 2018.
Soon after, the patient’s appointment was fixed with Dr. Prashant Jain, senior consultant urologist at BLK Hospital, New Delhi. He went through the entire case history of the patient in detail and concluded that Evans would need the left orchidopexy surgery. This was followed by conducting all the routine investigations, physical examination, and ultrasonography required to be done before the surgery. Soon the surgery was carried out successfully.
A repeat ultrasonography test was also done to confirm the success of the surgery. The patient was discharged from the hospital after getting the post-operative instructions from the doctor. Evans and his parents, both were cheerful while departing from India on 22 December. They were entirely satisfied with the treatment and overall services received while they were in India.
Vaidam wishes Evans great health and long life.
