Nigerian businessman Shehu Lau Hamza has been suffering from back ache for sometime. Inspite of several medications he couldn't get rid of it. Finally, he thought to look for treatments abroad.
"The pain in my spine was there for a couple of years. No medication would help. I have found Vaidam Health with the help of internet". He went through Vaidam's website and was specifically interested by the cost estimator tool in it.
"The cost estimator tool was the section in the website that caught my attention. It was so detailed. It included not only the cost of the treatment but also of the whole medical trip including flight, visa, accommodation, everything. For a patient I think this is the best tool ever made as it clears all possible doubts about the medical trip".
He was promptly responded by Dr.Amar, who takes care of all the patient cases. "I was really happy to talk to Dr. Amar. She was very patient and sweet. She provided me with a list of doctors and hospitals out of which I chose Dr. Rajesh Kumar Verma of Artemis Hospital".
As Hamza's spine pain generated from a friction between the lumbar vertebrae, Dr. Verma thought it was best to perform transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) surgery. In this surgical procedure, the surgeon operates the spine through the back or posterior of the patient. A bone graft is placed between two vertebrae to avoid movement or friction that causes the pain.
Hamza's medical trip to India was for 50 days. "After the surgery I felt a lot more comfortable. Ofcourse, it took time to heal. Spine surgery is a major surgery". Relieved from his back pain that had agonized him for so long he felt happy and showered his gratitude on Dr. Verma and Artemis Hospital. “I am lucky to have got Dr. Verma to treat me. He is an expert surgeon. Everyone at Artemis Hospital was very cordial and caring. I loved it”.
He also didn’t forget to show his heartfelt gratitude to Vaidam Health. "I have recovered completely. Thank you Vaidam Health for helping me get the right medical treatment for my spine. You have been all along with me since the start. I would also like to thank my patient manager, Saurabh. He received me at the airport, took me to the desired accommodation and was there by my side the whole time during my treatment".
Happy, as he departs for his country Hamza wishes a good luck for Vaidam Health.
