The case manager, Aditi Sabharwal provided him with some profiles of the top doctors in India. After going through those profiles, Mr. Edward finally decided to visit Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon. The team collectively assisted the family in getting the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital and also in the application of the visa. They received the visa within 72 hours of its application and the tickets were booked. The Vaidam team also arranged their hotel and airport pickup prior to their arrival.

Soon after their arrival, Edward’s appointment was booked for a health checkup. During the checkup, it was found that he had some abnormalities in the spine for which he may need surgery. Hence, he was referred to Dr. Hitesh Garg, one is an eminent spine specialist in the hospital. Dr. Hitesh evaluated him meticulously and sent him for further investigations such as MRI spine. After the reports came back, it was confirmed that he needed the surgery. 

After a family discussion, Edward agreed to get the surgery done before going back home. Spine surgery was performed successfully. Since then Edward has been recovering well.

“Vaidam team was very helpful during my entire trip. Thank you for taking care of everything here.”
