Aortobifemoral Bypass Surgery In India- Uganda Patient Story
Martin Junior Murunga successfully underwent Aortobifemoral Bypass Surgery in India. He was diagnosed with a serious problem with the blocked blood vessels in the abdomen and groin a while back. To treat this medical condition, doctors most often advise aortobifemoral bypass surgery which involves the creation of a new path around a clogged, diseased large blood vessels in the abdomen as well as groin. It is a major surgery that needs to be performed by a team of highly-experienced surgeons.
Due to the lack of availability of medical treatment in his Uganda, Martin along with his brother Emmenuel Wamare decided to come to India and get quality treatment.
What Happened with Marting in Uganda?
Initially, Martin experienced pain in one of his limbs. He went to a local doctor and was prescribed some medications. Those medicines weren’t helpful, so he went to another doctor for a second opinion. The doctor evaluated him thoroughly and the tests concluded that he had a serious problem with blood clots in his abdomen and groin. The doctor recommended surgical treatment. Initially, things were pretty good after the surgery and he thought he would be back leading a normal life. But God has his own version of the story. After a while, he started experiencing some pain and it got worsened as time passes. Unfortunately, he lost one of his limbs.
How he Came in Contact with Medsurge India?
He understood one thing that the treatment by doctors in his native country won’t be long-lasting. Therefore, he started looking for a solid treatment solution. While searching online, he watched a patient testimonial explaining how he got successfully treated in India with the help of a health assistance partner – Medsurge India. From that moment, he decided to get treated in India. So, he contacted Medsurge and came to India with his brother Emmenuel Wamare. Both of them are very thankful to Dushyant from Medsurge.
How Medsurge India Assisted the patient in India?
On their arrival in India, they were comfortably moved to their guest house from the airport. Medsurge India team took care of all of their basic necessities from setting up the appointment to getting treatment at an affordable price. Medsurge’s team set up Martin’s appointment with Dr. Himanshu Verma at Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Verma explained the entire situation to Martin and his brother and was convinced that the surgery will make things better in the long run. He advised aortofemoral bypass surgery.
Meeting with the Doctor and Surgery
Upon Martin’s approval, the doctor performed aortofemoral bypass surgery by removing the old clot and reimplanted aorto bifem with IMA. The surgery went successful and he was discharged a week after the surgery. Later, they stayed near the hospital for two weeks for regular follow-up procedures. Medsurge India team helped them throughout the treatment.
After making a quicker recovery, the duo left India with the hope that things will get better after getting back to his native country. Medsurge team is still in touch with them and helps Martin with regular video consultation with Dr. Verma as and when required
