Muhammad Zameer is a 2 years 8 months old child from Mozambique, who had been toiling hard to live a normal life. He started to lose weight abnormally at the age of nearly 1 year and 10 months, which was noticed by his mother. Zameer was diagnosed with Bilateral Vesicoureteral Reflux when his mother took him to a physician in Mozambique and all the investigations were conducted. This was an extremely frightful situation for the parents and they were eager to get it treated as soon as possible.
Vesicoureteral Reflux is a condition in which the urine flows in the backward direction. Normally, the urine flows from the kidneys to the ureters, then to the urinary bladder. However, in cases of VUR, the urine flows back from the bladder to the kidneys. This may cause several complications including severe kidney infection and kidney damage. Untreated cases in children may lead to Bed-wetting, abnormal bowel movements, high blood pressure, protein in the urine, or kidney failure.
Muhammed Zameer had been to India previously in 2015, where he underwent diagnostic cystoscopy which revealed enlargement of the bladder neck and enlarged openings of the ureters. The patient additionally had a high-pressure unstable bladder. Therefore, he was advised to undergo Bilateral robotic ureteric reimplantation during his next visit.
To help her child finally get rid of this condition, Mrs. Nureisha decided to visit the best urology hospital in India. To expedite the process, she contacted Vaidam Health. Soon, she was contacted by a case manager, Heena Mehta who helped in choosing the hospital. Ultimately, it was finalized to visit Dr. Gursev Sandlas, one of the at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai. Shortly, all the arrangements were made with the assistance of the case manager to help the patient arrive in India on 22nd October 2018.
After their arrival, the family was picked up from the airport and taken to the hotel. Soon after, the appointment was fixed with the doctor. During the appointment, Dr. Gursev, topmost pediatric urologists in India took a detailed medical history of the patient and ordered all the required investigative tests. After getting back the reports, the doctor confirmed the date for bilateral robotic ureteric reimplantation.
Zameer stayed in the hospital for nearly 7 days. The parents were given detailed instruction about the post-operative care of the patient and counseled for dietary changes. “I want to say that Mr. Pankaj was always there when I needed him. He was the one who encouraged me all the time. We are really grateful for the successful surgery of my son and all other services,” said Mrs. Cadir. They finally flew back home on 12th November 2018.
Vaidam wishes Mohammad Zameer a healthy and a long life ahead.
