Pradeesh Singh from Fiji had a Successful CABG Surgery in India

Pradeesh Singh, who is 56 years old from Fiji had been having a normal life, working and enjoying with family in spare times. However, most of the problems in life come on the spur of the moment. He started having chest pain one day, which kept aggravating and radiating to his shoulder and arm on one side, which was later diagnosed as a severe cardiac blockage. Read the full story and find out how he got treated.


Tell Us About Yourself

I am Pradeesh Singh and I belong to Fiji. I am 56 years old.


Pradeesh Singh, Fiji, CABG, Medanta Hospital


What brought you to India?

My problem started with a mild chest pain which soon turned into heart blockage. When I consulted a doctor in Fiji for the chest pain, he advised me to get some tests done. The test reports were abnormal and insinuated towards abnormal heart condition. I was admitted to the hospital in Fiji. Later, to confirm the diagnosis, the doctor performed an angiogram, which revealed something very shocking. I was suffering from severe cardiac blockage. The angiogram revealed approximately 80% of blockage in branches of left and right coronary arteries. Therefore the doctor in Fiji advised me to come to India for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) because the infrastructure in Fiji was not enough for the surgery.


How did you choose the hospital and the doctor?

While searching on the internet for the best cardiology hospitals in India, we found out about Vaidam Health, which would assist us in everything related to the treatment. I posted a query and received a call shortly after that. I was asked to share my reports to get the hospital opinion. After I shared my reports, my case manager suggested me some of the topmost cardiac surgeons in India. Since I had heard of Dr. Naresh Trehan earlier and my case manager also suggested me the same, I decided to get the surgery done by him at Medanta Hospital, Gurgaon.


How did you get the visa?

This process was also made easier by the Vaidam team. They helped me getting the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital. After getting it, I applied for the visa and received it within a week.


Tell us about your experience after reaching India.

After my arrival in India, a person from Vaidam team was waiting outside the airport to pick me up and drop at my hotel. After getting some rest and freshen up, I had my appointment fixed with Dr. Naresh Trehan. During the appointment, the doctor patiently heard my entire story from the beginning and saw my reports. He then ordered some routine investigations and cardiology tests. After getting the reports, he confirmed that I need CABG. I was admitted to the hospital for nearly 7 days. After that, I stayed in a hotel for the next 3-4 days, during which I had to follow up at the hospital.


How did you arrange your stay at the hotel?

My hotel stay was also arranged by Vaidam. It was booked on the basis of my closest proximity to the hotel, ease of commuting and also on my other preferences.
