Mr Abdullah is up and running: Successful Spine Surgery at Artemis Hospitals, Gurgaon

We had a 20-year-old patient from Iraq who was suffering from spinal pain, especially in the lower part of his back. His family reached to us through our website and submitted us the necessary reports and other documents. Therefore, we helped him in getting treatment in Artemis Hospitals, Gurgaon after Easycure did all the formalities.


Background of the Problem

Mr Abdullah was normal 1 month prior to the surgery. He felt a sudden pain in his back, which was insidious in onset, gradually progressive and was associated with Left Leg Radiculopathy. The pain was not permanent as it used to get aggravated while doing any physical task and slowly fades down when sitting or relaxing. His family got little worried about it as Abdullah was quite young to face this kind of problem and if it was repetitive in nature, it required medical attention at the earliest.

How Easycure helped the patient is being treated in India


Easycure helped the patient to get the right doctor and hospital in India and negotiated with the hospital staff. Easycure did formalities related to Medical Visa on patient’s behalf. Pick up was duly arranged and our executive went to the airport to pick the patient at the time of arrival. The patient was diagnosed and treated the next day.  The accommodation provided was also near the hospital and was very convenient for the patient.
