Here’s the Story of Ituma Miriam, for whom Indian Doctors were a Blessing in Disguise


Ituma Miriam from Nigeria was full of exhilaration and vivacity during the prime of her life. Her life was just like any other girl in Nigeria. She could not ever think of being diagnosed with a terminal condition. However, in the year 2009, she started having a headache and blurred vision. When these signs and symptoms became worse, she consulted a doctor in Nigeria. The doctor did some investigations and came to the conclusion that she had a tumour in her pituitary gland. Ituma was jolted back to hear the news. She kept herself strong and decided to visit India for a good treatment. 

During her research about the best neurosurgeon in India, she got to know about Vaidam Health. After reading more about it, she posted her query and soon she received a call back from one of the case managers. The case manager took her reports and shared them with some of the best doctors to get the opinion. Thereafter, the opinion, a cost estimate and detailed profile of some of the best doctors and hospitals were sent to Ituma. After going through the profiles in detail, she finally decided to visit Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon.

The entire paperwork needed for visa application was done by the team. Arranging the visa invitation letter and application of medical visa. Within 72 hours of visa application, Ituma received her visa at her email address. The team also arranged her place of accommodation, airport pickup and drop off. Finally, she landed in India on 16th September. 

After she arrived in India, her appointment was fixed with Dr. Aditya Gupta, who is one of the finest neurosurgeons in India. The doctor heard the story and sent her for further evaluation. After the results came back, the doctor advised pituitary gland surgery. After Ituma was convinced, the surgeon was conducted at a scheduled date. Ituma stayed in the hospital for a few days and then got discharged. Dr. Gupta had a detailed discussion with her, explaining about the precautions she would need to take after going back home. a

“ I have been recovering well after the surgery. The doctor, hospital team and the Vaidam team was very sincere and helpful. As a first time visitor to a new country, I did not face any issue. Thanks to Vaidam for taking care of everything during my entire stay.”
