Robin from Kenya Gets Away with Excruciating Back Pain at ISIC, New Delhi.


45 years old Robin Mangula from Kenya had been having a long-struggling period with excruciating back pain. It is frustrating when all of a sudden life gets dependent on others and you are not able to even stand or walk without pain. Robin was stressed too. Since 2017, he started having sciatica pain as a result of slipped discs. He went ahead for physiotherapy but it did not work well. Finally, he decided to visit India for lifelong treatment.

While he was looking for the best spine surgeons in India, he came to know about Vaidam Health. He visited a website, posted a query and received a call back shortly. The case manager helped him getting opinions from the best hospitals. Ultimately, the patient was able to decide that he would visit the Indian Spinal Injuries Center, New Delhi for the treatment.


After the decision was made, Vaidam team assisted him in getting the paperwork done. The case manager got the Visa Invitation Letter from the hospital and the rest of the team worked for the application of his medical eVisa. Subsequently, he arrived in India on 7th March 2019. He was received by an executive of the operations team and taken to the hotel.


Soon, his appointment was booked with Dr. Gururaj at Indian Spinal Injuries Center. The doctor listened to him patiently and took a detailed medical history and performed some clinical examination. Then, he was sent for further investigations such as MRI spine and CT spine. The reports revealed that there was a posterocentral annular tear in L4/L5 and disc protrusion at L5/S1 causing narrowing of the spinal canal. The doctor advised getting Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion surgery.


On a scheduled date, the surgery was conducted successfully. After a few days of observation and recovery, the patient was discharged from the hospital. The doctor had a detailed session of lifestyle and postural changes that he would need to make in the future. “The treatment and overall care were fantastic. I am very thankful to all the staff for being very patient and kind. I would love to visit India again”.


Robin had a fast recovery and his stitches were removed before he went back to Kenya. Vaidam wishes him a pain-free life ahead.
