I’m very thankful to MediGence for their excellent service. I appreciate their entire coordination right from the pre-travel stage to the time I finally returned home.
MediGence provided all the support that was required to make my treatment comfortable.

Introduction

Mr. Abdool Ubayd, 32, from Mauritius, was suffering from advanced stage keratoconus disease and was advised to undergo cornea transplant surgery. Keratoconus is a condition in which the clear tissues on the cornea bulges outward. Symptoms initially appear during puberty and include blurred vision as well as sensitivity to glare and light. He experienced corneal swelling and cloudy vision which made it a little difficult to read. Even with treatment with eye drops, his blurry vision didn’t improve.

Mr. Abdool consulted his local doctor. After studying the diagnostic reports, the doctor suggested a corneal transplant. He found the procedure costly in Mauritius and, so, was looking for an affordable option.

Mr. Abdool looked for a medical tourism company that would suggest to him the best destination where could find the best doctor and hospital for his cornea transplant at an affordable rate. While searching on the internet, he came across MediGence. Mr. Abdool found MediGence’s health package very reasonable and comprehensive. He left a query on their website and within a few hours, a representative of MediGence got back to him quickly and asked him to send a few details. Post his submission of the requested details, he got a call back from MediGence to know more about his condition. Mr. Abdool shared his case details and medical reports with them. The patient advisory team provided a list of the best doctors and hospitals from different countries. Mr. Abdool chose Dr. Ahmet Alperen and Medical Park Florya Hospital in Turkey. Dr. Ahmet is one of the finest transplant surgeons in Turkey. He has experience of 12 years in transplants. The doctor has been associated with several reputed hospitals in Turkey. The hospital has a capacity of around 300 beds and is fully equipped with 13 advanced operation rooms.

Mr. Abdool received an assessment from the best hospital in Turkey. The treatment plan suggested by Dr. Ahmet Alperen was holistic and according to the recommendations from his consultant doctors in Mauritius. MediGence helped Mr. Abdool with arranging a videoconferencing with the doctor who was very very polite and attentive. Finally, Mr. Abdool decided to travel to Turkey.

Pre-treatment and process

Mr. Abdool traveled to Turkey on January 4, 2021, with his friend. The Visa invite from the selected hospital was facilitated by the assigned patient manager. Abdool applied and received the Visa within 2 weeks.
Mr. Abdool chose the hotel suggested by MediGence based on his budget. It was near to the hospital. He was received at the airport by MediGence Team who had pre-booked a hotel. The assigned case manager made sure that the patient was provided will the best facilities at the hotel. MediGence took the patient to the hospital for consultation with Dr. Ahmet. Mr. Abdool’s appointment with the doctor was booked in advance by MediGence Team. After initial checkups, he was admitted to the hospital. Completing all medical examinations, the doctor asked Mr. Abdool to go for a few diagnostic tests.

The doctor evaluated the test reports and found Mr. Abdool fit for the surgery. The cornea transplant surgery was done successfully without any major complications. His right eye vision has improved. Mr. Abdool stayed in the hospital for 2 days and in Turkey for 15 days on the doctor’s advice. He showed a speedy recovery.

Post-treatment

Mr. Abdool shifted to the hotel post-discharge and continued medications there. He was closely monitored by the attendant at the hotel and MediGence was apprised of his condition.

Mr. Abdool and his friend finally returned to Mauritius after having spent about 15 days in Istanbul. The family is very grateful for the service provided by MediGence for the complete coordination from the pre-travel stage to the time he eventually returned home. He thanked MediGence for rendering all the kinds of support that were required to make Mr. Abdool’s treatment journey successful.

Mr. Abdool is very happy with the treating doctor and the surgery outcome. He is impressed with the doctors and nursing staff at Medical Park Florya Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey for their outstanding service.

He is also very pleased with the services that MediGence provided. Mr. Ubayad also appreciated how quickly MediGence reached out to them and helped him in getting his appointments and logistics fixed.
