Bended by 40 degrees due to Scoliosis, Sharon Omelie Olokpo's, from Nigeria, Spine was Successfully Restored in India

Bended by 40 degrees Sharon Omelie Olokpo’s spine suffered from scoliosis for the past two years. With time the aggravating spinal conditions of the 14-year-old from Nigeria demanded urgent medical attention. After a rigorous search on the internet for the best medical options, she arrived in India with her mother.



Where did you have your treatment in India?

In India, I had my treatment at Artemis Hospital in Gurgaon and consulted Dr. Hitesh Garg.


When did you decide to have your treatment here?

Back in Nigeria, the doctors said that I would require a surgery to fix my spine. But a proper surgical treatment was not available in the country. I wanted to be sure before going under the needle so, I searched a lot over the internet and even contacted some hospitals. Somehow I felt I was not getting a proper suggestion or quote which was very important for me. It is my first visit to India and sitting in Nigeria I did not have any knowledge regarding the best medical options here. Then I came across Vaidam’s website. They responded to my query with all the necessary details of the best spine surgery hospitals in India. My case manager said that scoliosis surgery is really affordable at Artemis Hospital.  


How are you feeling now after the surgery?

I feel great. Now I can walk and sit up straight. It was pretty difficult and awkward to do these activities previously. I am glad that my posture has been restored. Dr. Garg is one of the top 10 spine surgeons in India. He has been amicable and supportive all the time. The patient care team at the hospital along with the other staffs has been very attentive. Artemis has a wonderful infrastructure and all the latest technologies necessary for a spine treatment.  


How has your medical trip to India been? 

It has been a very smooth trip. The things I feared and were apprehensive about were tackled beforehand by Vaidam. My case manager provided me with the right doctor at a very affordable budget for scoliosis surgery in India. Appointments were made even before I arrived in India and I did not have to wait. The team has even assisted us in visa application and also looked for an accommodation for us near the hospital. They were constantly in touch and had also accompanied us to the hospital. Not at any moment did we feel at a loss. I thank them from the bottom of my heart and wish them all the luck.
