“ I would recommend Vaidam Health to everyone who seeks medical attention in India. If you come to India through Vaidam, you will get full services”. These were the words of 43 years old Mamenne from Liberia, who had chronic back pain for a long time.
The reason behind the visit to India
Mamenne D. Quaqua from Liberia started having back pain several years ago in 1999. “ My disc was out of place, and I had pain in my right leg on touching a nerve.” He consulted various spine specialists in Liberia and had investigations. The reports revealed that he had a lumbar disc herniation and due to limited resources in Liberia, he needed to go abroad.
Choice of the hospital
“While I was planning to visit India for my treatment, I had a sharp pain due to which I could not even walk. This happened 2 weeks before my departure”.
Later, while searching on the internet, his wife found out about Vaidam Health. He posted a query and got a call back from one of the case managers, Aparna Kochhar. She provided a list of the best spine surgery hospitals in India and spine specialists. She also arranged some hospital opinions and the associated cost packages. Soon, he decided to go for Fortis Hospital, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.
Arrival in India
“The best thing was that Vaidam sped up the process, which I really needed”.
The case manager arranged a Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital. A team member from Vaidam applied my visa application form. He received the visa within 72 hours on his email ID. Finally, he was in India on 18th March. After his arrival, he was picked up from the airport, taken to the hotel and then taken to the hospital to meet the doctor.
Experience in the hospital
At the scheduled time, the patient met Dr. Manoj Miglani at the hospital. He listened patiently and asked a few questions. Then, he was sent for further investigations. After the reports came back, the doctor recommended that he needed Microdiscectomy surgery for my back. After pre-surgical preparations and routine examination, the surgery took place successfully. I stayed in the hospital for a couple of days. Before the discharge, I was explained in detail about the lifestyle changes I need to make in the future.
“Everybody in the hospital including the doctors, nurses and other staff kept asking me if I needed something. I am thankful to Vaidam Health for taking care of everything”. Quoted the patient.
