Gregory Amoha Bright, is a 4 month old baby from Ghana with chubby cheeks, bright eyes and curly black hair. But since his birth, the only places that he has been most acquainted with are hospitals as he suffered from a congenital heart disease.
“Although Gregory has been hospitalized in Ghana but due to lack of treatment options, we started looking elsewhere. Doctors back in Ghana suggested that India will be a suitable place for his treatment”, said Gregory’s mother.
One of her friends told her about Vaidam. “Ofori has been a patient of Vaidam earlier and he had undergone a successful treatment in the country with their assistance. He told me to contact Vaidam as they provide the right hospital and doctor for treatment”, said Mrs. Bright.
In India, Gregory had his treatment at Apollo Children’s Hospital in Chennai. “I was told by my case manager at Vaidam that Apollo Children’s Hospital (a part of Apollo Hospital, Chennai) is highly preferred for pediatric treatment. And, indeed it is one of the best hospitals for child care. After investigating my son’s condition, Dr. Neville Solomon suggested an open heart surgery. I was scared to death. I didn’t even know in what condition will my baby be after the surgery. But there was no other option and I gave in”.
After the surgery, Gregory had to stay in the hospital for two weeks for recovery and follow-ups. “I feel that my child is blessed. He is heal-and-hearty and happy. I am extremely elated and would love to thank Dr. Solomon and Apollo Children’s Hospital for such a wonderful treatment and for taking care of my child so well. The hospital is hygienic with all the newest medical technologies and facilities required and the nurses were also very patient and caring. I loved it”, said she.
Before the surgery, 4-month-old Gregory suffered from cyanosis, his normal functioning of the heart was affected and had congested cardiac failure. Cyanosis is the bluish discoloration of the skin because of increased concentration of deoxyhemoglobin caused by deoxygenation.
“Prior to the surgery, his condition worsened as each day passed. I just wanted a proper hospital where there will be good doctors and latest treatment facilities so that my child could be completely cured. Vaidam Health has provided me with just what I needed. Once you get in touch with them, they will be at your assistance throughout. Options of various hospitals with the specialized doctors and the cost of the treatment were mailed to me along with the doctor’s opinions. My case manager even guided me in medical visa application from Ghana. In the whole medical trip, I didn’t have to ask for or look for anything as they duly arranged all of them for me and maintained follow-up calls. I really appreciate their assistance and care. Thank you Vaidam Health”.
