Mr. Chief Albert - Kenya, Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Patient Story – Mr. Chief Albert from Kenya came to India for his brother’s Disc Surgery that helped him get back to normal life
“My elder brother was suffering severe neck pain for many years and the best of the local doctors in my home country were of the opinion that my brother needed a spinal disc replacement surgery. But there were no good hospitals or facility for such surgery available. So I started to search for hospital outside my country for the treatment. The hospitals in South Africa quoted a huge amount for the treatment which was beyond my reach. Then one of my friends told me about India. He told that there are good hospitals and doctors in India and the cost is low.
I searched on the internet and I found SafeMedTrip website. I filled up the form on the website. I got a call from the case manager and she told me to send the medical reports of my brother. I sent the reports by mail and the case manager got back to me with the opinion doctor and the treatment package. She was very kind and explained me in detail about the package and traveling to India for Spine surgery. The quote was affordable for us and I was impressed with the the profile of the Indian spine surgeon . The case manager helped me with the passport, visa and the air tickets which saved a lot of my time.
On the day I and my brother came to India We were received at the airport and directly taken to the hospital where a room was already kept ready for us. I had never seen such caring services in hospitals back home in my country. Without any delay my brother was seen by a team of doctors and a series of tests were carried out, surgery was planned and it was a success. We stayed in India for few more days for follow up. Overall it was a great experience. I thank everyone who helped me and my brother is back on his job and doing well now.
