74-Year-Old Redda Teklehaimanot Zewdu from Ethiopia Walks Out Healthy and Happy After a Successful Valve Replacement in India

As we age the strength and immunity developed in our youth starts fading away. With the gradual presence of lines in our faces, inside, our organs weaken giving way to major problems that require immediate attention. Faced with a similar scenario 74-year-old Redda Teklehaimanot Zewdu suffered from chest pain, shortness of breath and fatigue only to realize that he suffered from calcified aortic stenosis. Looking for immediate treatment he accompanied by her daughter traveled to India.



What treatment procedure did the doctor suggest for your medical condition?

Dr. Nandkishore Kapadia at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai, recommended a valve replacement surgery along with CABG for my condition. He said that because of excessive calcium accumulation in the aortic valve the blood flow from the heart to the body is restricted resulting in the chest pain and breathlessness I experienced.


Has the symptoms lessened after the surgery?

Yes, it definitely has. After the surgery, I feel a lot healthier. CABG is a major surgery that I have undergone and I was having pre-surgery jitters. I did not know whether life will be the same again after the surgery. But, now I can say that it is far better. Dr. Kapadia and his team of the best cardiac surgeons in India have performed the surgery flawlessly. I do not feel any discomfort, the sutures are perfect. I thought that the postoperative period will be painful but due to good medical management and a wonderful patient care team at KDAH I recovered fast. It is an exceptionally nice hospital that has really good and efficient doctors.


Where did you get to know about KDAH?

Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital was referred to me by Vaidam in whose website I enquired for my cardiac condition.


Did you like the assistance provided to you by Vaidam?

The team provides a very dedicated and unique assistance. On one hand, they are warm, cordial and reassuring and on the other they are very professional, quick in their responses, organized and very detail oriented. I did not feel for a moment that there is something more that I need to know as all my questions were duly answered with precision. Apart from finding one of the top 10 best cardiac hospitals in India and doctor they also followed up regularly after I arrived in India. All in all, the team of Vaidam makes sure that you have a very pleasant and hassle-free stay in the country and I am very happy to be a receptor of their services.
