Rebati Rajbhandari Joshi from Nepal Gets Meningioma Excision by One of India’s Top Neurosurgeons at Artemis Hospital

It started off as a splitting headache that would not go away. 62-year-old Rebati Rajbhandari Joshi from Nepal tried a number of therapies: Massage, acupuncture, yoga, however, nothing seemed to work. She finally went to see a doctor who suspected a sinus headache and prescribed pain medication. For days she experienced terrible pain, some days she could fight it off; other days she needed extra doses of sinus medicine to get rid of the terrible pain.


Then late one evening, those irritating headaches reached a point where they could no longer be contained. In the middle of the night, Rebati woke up feverish and feeling extremely sick. Certain she was suffering from food poisoning; she tried to sleep through it. She soon awoke to find herself shaking uncontrollably. Afraid her symptoms would get out of control, her family immediately rushed her to the hospital. “We got a CT scan done in Nepal which revealed swelling and a probable tumor in the right frontal lobe, close to the midline of my brain. That was a shocker," Rebati recalls.


After she received her diagnosis, Rebati and her family began researching neurosurgeons online to determine where she should get her treatment. “I think we looked everywhere for a possible solution, finally after speaking to a Vaidam case manager, we ultimately decided to undergo the brain surgery at Artemis hospital as it is the best hospital in India for meningioma treatment.”


During her appointment, Rebati met Dr. Aditya Gupta, MD, PhD, who today practices with Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon. After reading a number of online reviews her doubts were allayed and she knew she was in good hands. "I feel grateful to be here today. My neurosurgeon, Dr Aditya Gupta, is a highly skilled doctor and put me at ease before the surgery.”


Dr. Aditya Gupta- one of the best neurosurgeons in India, ordered additional brain scans that revealed a mass surrounded by significant brain swelling and mass effect, with the meningioma compressing the adjacent brain tissue, Dr. Gupta says: "The scans also revealed that the meningioma was attached to one of the main vessels that allow blood to leave the brain and return to the body.” Dr. Gupta waited a few days to perform surgery, in the meanwhile, he got a secondary MRI in order to precisely localize the meningioma at the time of surgery.


The surgery went as planned and the meningioma was completely removed. Rebati was kept under observation for the next few days following surgery. After closely monitoring her brain swelling improvements, Rebati was discharged the following week.


After being discharged, Rebati was filled with a sense of overwhelming ease, “I knew in my heart that I was going to be alright”. Thankfully and as Dr. Gupta had anticipated, the tumor was a benign meningioma, and thus had not spread to other parts of Rebati’s brain. During the weeks after surgery, Rebati rested and gradually got back to her old self again. Now back in Nepal Rebati sends her well wishes, “I would like to say a big thank you to Dr. Aditya Gupta and the staff at Artemis Hospital; I would also like to thank Vaidam who made it all possible. I have a new lease of life, and it’s all thanks to you.”


Vaidam wishes Rebati a speedy recovery and a fulfilling life ahead.
