Dodging a Critical Brain Surgery, Shabana Nahid from Bangladesh Got the Ultimate Cure for Meningioma through a Gamma Knife Surgery

Any injury or pressure to any of the nerves in the brain would increase the chances of vision loss and other multiple disabilities. This was the conclusion of 54-years-old Shabana Nahid’s local doctor in Bangladesh. Developing deep inside her brain, the meningioma tumor posed a threat with its tricky position. Symptoms of headaches and blurry vision aggravated leaving her in a delicate condition. It is in this hour that she along with her husband decided to travel to India to remove the tumor.    



How did the meningioma affect you? Was it severe?

The headaches were severe. The tumor had actually grown to such an extent that my vision was altered. My sight was not clear, my ears ringed and sometimes I could not even remember things. The symptoms were notorious and we had to find a way to remove the tumor. It was becoming unbearable with each passing day.  


Which hospital did you consult in India for the treatment?

We consulted the best meningioma treatment doctors in India and finally went to Vimhans Hospital in New Delhi.


What was the doctors’ opinion?

The doctors said that a surgery was required but due to the size and location of the meningioma, it will be critical. I was suggested to take an opinion of cyber knife and gamma knife surgery which is a minimally invasive procedure to cure brain tumors. Thereafter, when I arrived at Vimhans Hospital, Dr. Mahadeep Singh Gaur told me that a gamma knife surgery was possible in my case and we immediately decided to go on with his valuable opinion.


How is a gamma knife surgery more effective than open brain surgery?

Well as far as Dr. Gaur told us, in a gamma knife surgery there are no incisions at all. It is a type of therapy in which 201 strong beams of radiation are concentrated on the location of the tumor so as to control, shrink and disintegrate it providing a complete cure. Dr. Gaur even assured us that in this procedure none of the healthy tissues and cells in my brain will be affected and I was relieved. The fact that the meningioma has been successfully removed from my brain without a single is incredible and I am really happy with the treatment.    


How do you feel after the gamma knife surgery?

When Dr. Gaur informed us that I can leave the hospital on the same day of my surgery I was surprised as well as confused but he explained that the patient does not undergo any such side effects or weakness so that he / she has to stay in the hospital. So, after two or three hours of the treatment I came back to my hotel and gradually felt much better as the headaches started to lessen and my other symptomatic conditions also improved. 


What would you like to say about Vaidam?

The team of Vaidam is very efficient, transparent, organized and amicable. I did not expect such detailed assistance and it is because of them that I have risen from the extremely agonizing phase of my life. There was a time when I and my family were clueless as to what can be done to get a complete cure, but from the moment I and my husband has been in touch with Vaidam, they have helped us in everything. From finding the right hospital and doctor to assisting us to get multiple opinions from the best hospital in India for meningioma to informing us about the cost, latest treatment procedures and accommodation facilities they have there for us throughout our medical trip. I am extremely thankful to Vaidam for what the team has done for me. It has been a very pleasant and hassle-free medical trip to India.
