70 Year Old Moses Kobina Returns to Ghana after a Successful Brain Tumour Removal

44-year-old Illias Kobina, was devastated when he found that his father Moses Kobina (aged 70) was diagnosed with Brain Tumour. Illias, who was living in Oman at the time he got the shocking news about his father, was disturbed to say the least. The lack of a strong healthcare system back home in Ghana meant that his options were very limited. However, Illias did not want to compromise on the quality of healthcare and in a bid to ensure that his father received the absolute best in healthcare available began looking around.


Having searched for various hospitals and treatments around the world, Illias finally decided to choose India and one of the best brain tumor surgery doctors in India for his father’s treatment. Six months after Moses had been diagnosed with Brain Tumour, Illias approached Vaidam Health, India by sending an online request form. Upon receiving his request, our patient relations executive Dr. Tamanna Kalra reached out to Illias and requested that they send all their medical reports for analysis. Next day, Illias was provided with top 10 brain tumor treatment centers in India



After giving it much thought, Moses opted for Fortis Hospital in New Delhi and be treated by resident neurosurgeon Dr. Sandeep Vaishya. Moses and his son Kenneth Acquah arrived in New Delhi on 20th January, and his treatment began the very next day. During the course of his surgery, Dr. Sandeep Vaishya operated on the patient’s brain to remove the tumor. Moses’s postoperative symptoms looked very good and he showed signs of a speedy recovery. After spending 5 days in the hospital, Moses was discharged with the doctor signing off a successful postoperative result. On 31st January, Moses returned to his home country of Ghana and is quickly moving towards complete recovery.



One week after returning to Ghana, Moses’s son Illias sent Vaidam India a thank you letter with a note saying, “We were so overwhelmed with the overall experience and brain tumor treatment cost in India. Also happy for helpful nature of the staff at Vaidam." The father-son duo, has returned with fond memories and a firm recommendation of Vaidam India and Fortis Hospital to his friends and relatives back at Ghana.


Someone has rightly said that Love has no language and National boundaries. Moses has returned to his country healthy as ever and with sweet memories.
