Eradicating anyone of our five senses creates a lot of difficulties, stagnating us, even though we want to move forward. Likewise, a loss of hearing would compel us to witness our lives like a silent movie depriving us the symphony of sound and the gift of communication.
8-year-old Fawzia from Somalia faced a similar scenario. She experienced loss of hearing due to bilateral eardrum damage. Therefore, holding the hands of her sister and brother-in-law little Fawzia started her journey and came to India for her treatment.
"In India we went to Medanta - the Medicity Hospital where my sister's treatment was done by Dr. K.K. Handa", said her sister. At the hospital, she underwent two surgical procedures: bilateral tympanoplasty and cortical mastoidectomy.
Tympanoplasty is the surgical procedure of reconstructing and repairing the eardrums also known as tympanic membrane. As the mastoid cells in the temporal bone of her skull was also infected, they were removed surgically, the procedure being called as cortical mastoidectomy.
Elated with the success of Fawzia's treatment, her brother-in-law said, "We are fortunate that we reached out to the right doctor and hospital. We are grateful to Vaidam Health for assisting us in it. Medanta surely has one of the best medical infrastructures. Dr. Handa - the best ENT Surgeon in India, has been very professional and reassuring in providing the treatment. The patient care team and all the staffs were cooperative. My wife even had an orthopedic treatment at the hospital and its been great".
Scrolling through the internet to find suitable treatment options for Fawzia, the couple came across Vaidam's website a month before they arrived in India. "We enquired in the website not knowing that such an immediate response was actually possible. I got a call from our case manager soon after and I was provided with thorough assistance in getting quotes, choosing the best ENT hospital in India and doctor and in visa application. Even after our arrival in India, we didn't face any trouble since we were in touch with the team. It has been a really nice experience of a medical trip to India with Vaidam's undivided attention and help".
