Challamuthu from Australia was suffering from cardiac troubles for several years. Medications were provided to him to keep it in check, but not for long. His health deteriorated and was soon diagnosed with multiple cardiac blockages. His family was desperate to get hold of the best cardiac surgeon in India for a cure. Following a rigorous search, they arrived in India for his treatment.
“My father suffered from chest pain that gradually spread through the shoulder and arm. He used to get exhausted and breathless while performing even light activities, like, walking for sometime. Heartburn was also a common symptom he used to experience frequently. Initially, we thought that it must be his age or gastric troubles; nothing too serious. But the angiogram revealed that the medicines did not help at all and his cardiac arteries were blocked. We wanted an immediate treatment but that was not possible because of the long waiting list. But we did not want to waste any time and started looking for options”, said his younger daughter, Roselyn.
In India, Challamuthu underwent an open heart surgery performed by one of the best and globally renowned cardiac surgeons, Dr. Naresh Trehan at Medanta – the Medicity in Gurgaon. “A repeat angiogram was performed again at Medanta to check the condition of my arteries. And on the next day I was being prepared to undergo the CABG surgery. The first thing I made sure of after I came to consciousness was to check that I was alive. Because I could not believe this fact that I have survived not only a cardiac disease but such an immensely complex procedure in which my chest and my breast bone has been cut open for four or five hours. I thank Dr. Trehan and Medanta – the Medicity for saving me from this prolonged cardiac condition. I hope my living condition will be much better now”, said Challamuthu.
In appreciation of the assistance of Vaidam, he said, “My daughter found Vaidam’s website online. Immediately after her enquiry of the best heart hospitals in India, she received a call and thereafter everything was arranged well in advance by the team. I am grateful to them for arranging an appointment with the best cardiac surgeon and a hospital in India that is at par with the standards of international healthcare facilities. They are very well informed about medical problems and treatments and even the advanced version of those treatments. From visa application to accommodation, we never had to worry about anything. Thank you Vaidam for providing me and my family with such a smooth medical trip to India”.
