A year and a half ago, Ticha Tewar received a trauma on his left arm. The left arm was fractured and he had to get a metal plate inserted to stabilize the fracture. Though the fracture was healed and the metal place was still in place, Ticha noticed that he was unable to move his arm. After consulting the doctor, he came to know that he had developed radial nerve palsy.
The Radial nerve palsy is a condition affecting the radial nerve causing weakness, numbness, and loss of control of muscles around the nerve. The radial nerve starts from the upper arm to the wrist and the fingers.

Medical Trip to India
Since Ticha wanted a permanent solution to his problem, he planned to visit India. While exploring the best orthopaedics in India, he got to know about Vaidam Health. He posted a query on the website of Vaidam Health and soon received a call back from one of the case managers, Akshita Nigam. The case manager asked Ticha to share his reports to send them to some of the best orthopaedic hospitals in India. Multiple quotes were received from these hospitals along with the doctor’s opinion. After going through the profiles, Ticha finally decided to visit Fortis Hospital Shalimar Bagh, New Delhi.
Medical Visa Application
The entire following paperwork was assisted by Vaidam. The Visa Invitation Letter was arranged by the case manager. The visa application form was also filled by another team member. The airport pickup and drop off was also arranged by Vaidam. He was received at the airport and taken to the hotel of his preferences by one of the executives of the operations team.
Experience in the hospital
During Ticha’s scheduled appointment with Dr Puneet Mishra, he gave his entire medical history in detail. The doctor listened to him very patiently and asked several questions. This was followed by conducting some clinical examinations and ordering further investigations such as X-ray and MRI. After the reports came back, the doctor explained to him that he would need ‘modified bones tendon transfer’ in his left arm. With the patient’s consent, the procedure was done successfully. This was followed by a few physiotherapy sessions for better recovery.
“I could not move my left arm for a very long time. Now, I have started performing activities. Thanks to Dr Mishra for listening to me patiently and resolving all the issues. Vaidam team was very helpful during my treatment to India. I am flying back happily.”
