Balram Naidu from Fiji Undergoes a Successful CABG at Apollo Hospital, New Delhi.

Balram Naidu is 59 years old from Fiji had been living a normal healthy life until a little while back, when he started to have shortness of breath. He started feeling exhausted after walking up to some distances. When he consulted a physician near him, he was suspected to have cardiac issues. Therefore, he was advised to have certain investigations including an angiogram. The angiogram revealed severe obstruction in multiple blood vessels to the heart. Consequently, he was recommended to get CABG done.


Due to limited resources in Fiji, the patient wanted to come to India for his treatment. While searching about the best cardiology hospitals in India, he came across the website of Vaidam Health. He posted the query regarding the treatment on the website. Soon he was called by a case manager, who explained everything to him in detail. The case manager, Dr. Amarroop asked for the reports of the patient and shared it with the leading hospitals. Soon after, Dr. Amarroop shared the opinion with the patient as received by the topmost cardiac surgeons in India. Finally, Balram was able to decide with the help of the case manager, that he would go to Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi for his surgery.

This was followed by the entire paperwork process that included getting the Visa Invitation Letter by the hospital, which was done by a team member. After completion of the entire paperwork, the patient finally arrived in India on 6th December 2018. As he arrived, he was picked up from the airport and taken to the hotel. Later his appointment was booked with Dr. Amit Mittal, who is a renowned cardiologist at the hospital. Dr. Mittal took a detailed case history of the patient and ordered a few cardiac investigations, which confirmed that the patient had a massive blockage in multiple arteries. Finally, the date for surgery was decided.


On the scheduled date, all the pre-operative examinations were carried out, to prepare the patient for the surgery. The patient was put on general anesthesia and the surgery went on for 3-4 hours and went successfully. He stayed in the hospital for nearly 10 days. Before the discharge, the doctor explained to him lifestyle and dietary changes that he would need to make. He finally went back on 5th January 2019. He was happy and contented with his successful treatment and overall services.


Vaidam wishes him good health in the future.
