Introduction

Chiamaka Ufuoma, 41, from Nigeria, was suffering from Oropharyngeal Cancer, which was diagnosed in Nigeria. The symptoms included sore throat and difficulty in eating. He took a few chemotherapy sessions in Nigeria but was not satisfied with the treatment. He decided to travel to India for further treatment.

Chiamaka Ufuoma was looking for a reputed oncologist for consultation and treatment. He stumbled upon MediGence, a global medical travel network while searching for doctors on the Internet. He emailed MediGence with a question. The case manager contacted him and requested all of his papers; after reviewing all of the documentation, he was given a list of the best hospitals and doctors. Chiamaka decided upon Artemis Hospital in Gurugram, India, to see Dr. Priya Tiwari (Medical Oncologist) and Dr. Subodh Chandra Pande (Radiation Oncologist).

Dr. Subodh Pande is a radiation oncologist with a wealth of clinical and teaching expertise. He worked at the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, where he helped to develop the neuro-oncology and pediatric oncology departments. Dr. Pande is particularly interested in the application of Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) and PET scan-based cancer treatment approaches. Dr. Priya Tiwari is a famous Medical Oncologist from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, the country’s flagship institute. She is well-versed in all areas of Medical Oncology and Internal Medicine. Artemis Hospital is Gurgaon’s first JCI and NABH-accredited facility. Artemis, one of India’s most modern hospitals, offers a broad range of advanced medical and surgical operations, as well as a comprehensive mix of inpatient and outpatient services.

Pre-treatment and process

Mr. Chiamaka Ufuoma traveled to India on 17 August 2021 and was received at the airport by the MediGence Team and all accommodation arrangements were done by them. The team ensured that he got the best facilities at the hotel. His consultation with both the doctors was pre-booked by MedGence.

After arriving at the hospital, the patient’s medical records were reviewed by the specialists. The patient’s pre-treatment testing started the day of his arrival. The doctors suggested a few tests, and after reviewing the results, they recommended radiation therapy along with chemotherapy. The MediGence team supported the patient in every way during the course of the treatment.

Post-treatment

He gradually began to heal after treatment. He stayed in the country for 50 days and was able to complete his rehabilitation. The MediGence team coordinated with the hospital and specialists for every aspect of the treatment. There were no complications throughout the procedure. It was a day-care procedure, and the patient did not get admitted to the hospital.

Mr. Chiamaka Ufuoma thanked MediGence for their vital role in helping him treat his condition and in providing world-class treatment. Apart from getting expert help in selecting the best doctor, hospital, and country to undergo treatment, MediGence also helped him avail of many additional facilities like filing visa applications, airport pick-up coordination, hospital transfer coordination, follow-up visits, and hospital appointment coordination as well. The patient is satisfied with the treatment outcome. He is particularly impressed with the doctors and nursing staff at Artemis Hospital for their outstanding service. Team MediGence wishes Mr. Chiamaka Ufuoma a very happy and healthy future.
