A Tanzanian Patient with Sickle Cell Anaemia who Underwent a Successful Bone Marrow Transplant in India

Brief About Patient

  • Name- Glory Enzi Ukoko
  • Native Country- Tanzania
  • Hospital- Fortis Hospital in Gurgaon, India
  • Treating Doctor- Dr. Vikas Dua (Pediatric- Hemato-oncology and BMT Unit)

Glory, a 7 year old girl from Tanzania was afflicted with sickle cell disease, a genetic disorder that can cause painful episodes and potentially disheartening strokes. Despite being little of age, Little Glory already battles the challenges of this disease daily. However, her life took a positive turn after undergoing treatment at Fortis Hospital in Gurgaon, India.

My beloved daughter Glory, a sweet and loving child, was living her everyday normal life until she started experiencing excruciating pain throughout her body. Concerned, I took her to see a doctor who told me she had sickle cell anemia. At first, I had no idea what this meant but after the doctor explained it to me, I was shocked and didn’t know what to do. Thankfully, the doctor advised me to seek treatment abroad for my daughter and undergo a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT).

During my search for a location for the procedure, I came across Medsurge India and their success stories. After reaching out to them, they were more than willing to aid me and my family in obtaining BMT in India. They introduced us to one of the best teams of specialists in Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon.

After thoroughly examining my daughter’s condition and reviewing her medical records, the doctor advised us to undergo a specific HLA blood test to determine the best match. 

To our great joy, my other child, Gaelyn, was a full match and we immediately began packing our bags to make the journey to India. Upon arriving in India, the Medsurge India team met us at the airport and took us to the hospital. We met Dr. Vikas Dua and his team, who began the testing protocol before beginning the procedure. The whole BMT procedure lasted one month, but the team advised that Glory needed to stay in India for another 3-4 months for regular follow-ups.

After undergoing all the necessary treatments, my daughter’s health showed signs of improvement and she became healthier. I am immensely grateful to the team of specialists at Fortis Hospital, and I want to give a big shout out to the Medsurge India team for their unwavering support and assistance throughout this journey. Without their dedicated efforts, we would not have been fortunate enough to encounter such a joyous journey.
