Joe's father, Mr. Frederick Oneko, is grateful to the doctor and the hospital in India for providing the right treatment to his son:
A nine-year-old child from Kenya was continuously rebuked by his parents. In spite of telling him several times, he would wet his bed and sometimes couldn’t even keep his bladder under control while he was outdoors. Embarrassed Joe Awiti Oneko’s parents tried hard to change his habit, scolded and even punished him until they got to know that their son is suffering from a neurological disease. Here is an excerpt from the conversation with his father Frederick Oneko during his and Joe’s visit to India for his treatment.
What was your son, Joe, suffering from?
He suffered from teethered cord syndrome, a neurological disease of the spine. We didn’t have any idea about it until we visited a doctor. I thought that my son is stubborn who does not want to learn the basic hygienic habits. So, we scolded him, sometimes we even punished him for not listening to us and not being cautious enough.
From when is he suffering from this disease?
Doctors said that this disease have been there in him since birth. I and my wife were shocked. We felt so guilty that we couldn’t understand our son; he suffered from a health problem and we didn’t even see it. So, I went to some doctors and for two years my son has undergone several treatments but there were no results.
Where did you find Vaidam Health?
I started to look for other treatment options outside Kenya. I didn’t want him to go through this any longer. So, I searched the internet and there I got to know about Vaidam Health. I was assisted by Dr. Tamanna from Vaidam in planning my medical treatment and tour in India.
Where was Joe’s treatment done in India?
How was the treatment at Batra Hospital?
It was excellent. All the staff, the nurses at Batra Hospital took great care of my son. I extend my gratitude to Dr. Gupta who has finally cured my son. He recovered fast too. He had to stay in the hospital for only four days. The urinary incontinence has reduced. I am really happy with the treatment. I must say that India is the best place for a medical treatment.
Did you like Vaidam Health’s services?
Yes, I loved it. They help you with everything starting from taking you to the best hospitals and the best doctors in the country to getting cheaper flight tickets. They are always there during the treatment and negotiate according to your budget. They have also helped me and my son to have a tour of the city, Delhi. It’s a beautiful city with a lot of historical heritage. I think Vaidam is the best medical tourism provider I have ever come across.
