After a Sudden Deterioration in Health Salim Akida Ali from Tanzania Received an Immediate Treatment for Urethral Obstruction in India

It is known to all how the human body functions. A person with a particular health concern is aware of the problem and the treatment options after a proper diagnosis. But what is beyond our conscious realm is when and how situations might worsen. 61-year-old Salim Akida Ali from Tanzania faced a similar situation: He knew he was suffering from urethral stricture and even arrived in India for his treatment but suddenly his health worsened and had to be admitted in the hospital under emergency.

 

 

How did the condition aggravate so abruptly?

I had been suffering from urethral stricture for a few years. In India I wanted to have my treatment in Chennai and even got the appointment at Apollo Hospital in Greams Road. One morning, after arriving in India, I suddenly experienced complete urethral obstruction. I did not know why or how did it happen but I was really scared. Immediately an emergency admission at the hospital was arranged and I was taken there.

 

How did your treatment go at Apollo Hospital?

As soon as I was admitted in Apollo Hospital, medical tests were performed. After getting the reports, Dr. Anant Krishnan Sivaraman suggested the surgical procedure of urethroplasty through which the blockages in the urethra are removed. Post surgery I had to stay in the hospital for almost a week and I must say that I have been taken care of thoroughly. The patient care team at the hospital is truly praiseworthy. They are organized and amiable. Apollo houses all the advanced medical facilities required and dexterous teams of doctors and specialists. Dr. Sivaram has been very solicitous. He advised me and my wife about post operative care and what precautions have to be taken in the long run. Not for once had I been in any discomfort or neglect. I am happy that the worst is over now and I will be fit again.

 

How did you get in touch with Apollo Hospital?

I wanted to have my treatment in India and searched online for the best options when I came across Vaidam Health’s website. I enquired and was responded immediately. It is then that the team of Vaidam arranged an appointment for me at Apollo Hospital.

 

How has your medical trip been in India?

The medical trip to India has been like a mixed bag. When my health suddenly required such immediate attention, I was petrified. Afterall, it is for the first time I am visiting India. So, until I was at the hospital and met the doctor I had been restless. But then Vaidam’s team helped me in every possible way. They are not only organized but are also prompt. Arranging an appointment on such a short notice is commendable. The best thing about the team is how they regularly keep in touch with you. I and my wife never felt that we are alone in the country. Even before we arrived in India, we were informed in detail about the hospital, the doctor, the cost of the treatment and the accommodation we were about to stay in. Such comprehensive assistance is rare and I value it a lot. It is because of them that irrespective of the hurdles that came my way, I have been successful in getting the best treatment. So, thank you Vaidam for all your support.
