After a Knee Replacement Surgery in India, Karima Azimi Nasry from Afghanistan Walks Again

Karima Azimi Nasry from Afghanistan is a 47-year-old housewife. She had been suffering from knee pain for a couple of years. Unfortunately, treatments and surgeries did not turn out to be fruitful. Nasry, therefore, came to India with her family for her knee treatment.

What problem did you have in your knee?

I used to suffer from a lot of pain in my knees. For like three or four years the pain has been there and I could not even walk. I have tried several medications and have even undergone an arthroscopy surgery two years back but there was no respite. I felt so hopeless that I thought maybe I will never get a proper treatment. Coming to India was, thus, a last try. 


Where did you have your treatment in India?    

I had my treatment at Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI), Gurgaon, where Dr. Ashok Rajgopal performed a knee replacement surgery on both of my knees. 


Did your treatment go well at FMRI?

Yes. I am very happy to say that the treatment provided by Dr. Ashok Rajgopal was very helpful. He made me walk again. Only after two days of the surgery, I could walk and within a week I was completely fit. Dr. Rajgopal didn’t go overboard with my treatment. He diagnosed my problem and told me that I would require a partial knee replacement on one knee while the other required a total knee replacement. So, I loved his diagnosis which was proper and had a practical approach. I should say that it is a miracle and obviously he is one of the leading orthopedic surgeons in India, so its not much of an exception.

How did you decide to come to India?

Well, we sought treatments outside Afghanistan and came across Vaidam Health over the internet. They responded to our enquiry and suggested a list of the best orthopedic hospitals and doctors in India. So, after talking to them we thought it was reliable and we decided to come to India.


How did Vaidam Health help you when you were in India?

The patient manager of Vaidam Health was very helpful. They received us in the airport, took us to our hotel and even accompanied us to the hospital during my treatment. The hotel that we stayed in was also a recommendation of Vaidam Health. They helped us in every way possible. It was because of them that we didn’t face any problem in India.

Vaidam Health has also helped us to look around Delhi. They arranged visits for us to the Kingdom of Dreams and to several malls for shopping. We also saw some of the historical places in Delhi. Humayun’s Tomb is my favorite. It is such a beautiful and peaceful place.


Did you face any trouble with visa application?

No, we didn’t. Initially we wanted to come via tourist visa but Vaidam Health suggested that it is better that we apply for a medical visa since some of the hospitals do not treat patients from abroad without a medical visa. All of their suggestions worked to our profit and I and my family are grateful to them for helping me so much.
