Patient Testimonial | Mr. Abubakaihas Underwent Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery in NMC Hospital, Dubai
  • Patient Name : Abubakaihas
  • From Country : Nigeria
  • Destination Country : Dubai, UAE
  • Procedure : Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery
  • Hospital : NMC Hospital, Dubai

I found Dr. Nikunj Gupta through MediGence which provided me with the best treatment options. They helped me choose the best doctor, destination, and made all necessary arrangements to make my treatment journey successful as well as comfortable. I am really thankful to Team MediGence.


Abubakaihas, 40, a resident of Nigeria, was extremely conscious of his body contour. He was concerned about his increasing body weight, which affected his normal life. His obesity caused several other issues like back pain, increased blood pressure, and fatigue. He tried dieting and exercise and even consulted a dietician to lose his weight, but none of these worked. With time his problems increased and it became difficult for him to lead a normal life.

Abubakaihas saw an advertisement for a sleeve gastrectomy in a newspaper and he thought it would be the solution to his health problems. After knowing his issues, one of his colleagues told him about MediGence, which was offering an attractive package for sleeve gastrectomy. He contacted them by posting a query on their website. Though the website had all the details regarding the surgery, he was impressed with their quick reply to my question within a few minutes.

Abubakaihas shared all the necessary details and documents with MediGence and it got back with a list of doctors and hospitals from different countries. The best part was that the options were presented as per his budget. The list included some of the reputed hospitals and doctors that offered the surgery within his budget. Based on his choice and recommendations by Medigence, Abubakaihas chose NMC Hospital, Dubai, and Dr. Nikunj Gupta, Specialist Gastrointestinal Surgeon, for his treatment. Dr. Nikunj has experience of more than 5 years in gastrointestinal surgery and bariatric surgery. The hospital provides world-class medical treatment with the help of hi-tech healthcare technologies at affordable costs.

Pre-treatment and Process

Abubakaihas arrived in India on 7 December 2020 accompanied by his brother. They were received at the airport by MediGence Team and all accommodation arrangements were done by the team. The assigned case manager ensured that the patient was provided with the best facilities at the hotel. The next day, a person from team MediGence took the patient to the hospital for consultation with Dr. Nikunj. Completing his medical examination, Dr. Nikunj told him to get a few tests done to find his health status. MedGence coordinated with the diagnostic department and helped the patient get his tests done.

The requested tests were X-rays, electrocardiogram, and blood tests. The test report came after one day and the second visit to the doctor was arranged by MediGence. The test reports were thoroughly studied by the doctor and no critical condition was diagnosed. The blood pressure of the patient has been recorded a little high. The patient went through some more examinations. The doctor prescribed some medications to stabilize her blood pressure as high blood pressure would make the surgery difficult. He was recommended a follow-up with the doctor after 1 week.

Dr. Nikunj suggested a sleeve gastrectomy based on consultation and his health record. After completely understanding the procedure Mr. Abubakaihas went ahead with the surgery. The surgery was done with high precision and involved minimal risk and complications. The hospital has a state-of-art infrastructure and is equipped with all modern facilities. Thanks to the deep expertise and experience of Dr. Nikunj, Mr. Abubakaihas successfully underwent the procedure with no major complications and recovered in a short span of time,

Mr. Abubakaihas stayed at the NMC Hospital, Dubai for 3 days receiving quality care from the experienced staff of the hospital. On post-op consultation and regular monitoring, Abubakaihas was discharged from the hospital. He was provided with several stay options and he chose the hotel as per his budget.


Mr. Abubakaihas is very thankful to MediGence for making his treatment journey successful and thanks to them for their excellent services. MediGence not only helped Abubakaihas during his hospital stay but also actively engaged in his hospital transfer process, airport pickup coordination, and hospital appointment coordination. MediGence also set up Abubakaihas’s follow-up appointments to ensure his safe recovery.

Mr. Abubakaihas stayed in Dubai for 15 days and enjoyed the best care and rich culture of Dubai. He says that he was quite satisfied with the doctor and the treatment outcome. He is thankful for the consultations and counseling provided by the NMC Hospital, Dubai. Abubakaihas thanked the MediGence team for its deep support throughout his treatment journey, helping him get exceptional care. He also thanked MediGence for the services provided right from the beginning -choosing the right doctor, arranging all consultations, and transfers.

Team MediGence wishes Mr. Abubakaihas a very happy and healthy future!
