My satisfaction with the effort, technique, and result of the operation performed by my physician, Dr. Sonal Gupta, is high.

The 58-year-old woman from Cameroon, Mrs. Dorothy Walter had a brain tumor. She was suffering from an illness that was causing her extreme agony, frequent migraines, heavy head feeling, and even unconsciousness. She had been searching for a while for a cure for this extremely dangerous and severe disease when she came across MediGence. She was aware of the organization and had verified its reputation and veracity by looking through its references. She was put in touch with the top specialists by the MediGence staff. Dr. Sonal Gupta was her treating and consulting physician.

With over 20 years of clinical experience, neurosurgeon Dr. Sonal Gupta is highly skilled. She presently works at Fortis Hospital in Shalimar Bagh as the Director of Neuro and spine Surgery. She had affiliations with several institutions before joining Fortis, including Action Balaji Hospital, Max Hospital, and Maharaja Agrasen Hospital. She was also employed by Salford Royal Hospital in the UK as a neurosurgery registry. Dr. Sonal graduated with honors from Baroda Medical College in Gujarat in 1992 as an M.B.B. S. and from Sree Chitra Institute of Medical Science & Technology in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, in 1997 as an M.Ch (Neurosurgery). In 1998, she had also completed DNB (neurosurgery).

By offering specializations within their current departments, the multispecialty Fortis Hospital Shalimar Bagh, New Delhi, achieves the pinnacle of attentive and high-quality care. It is the biggest hospital under the Fortis group’s network, having opened for business in 2010. People from nearby states as well as residents frequent Fortis Shalimar Bagh, which is situated in the center of North Delhi. Those coming from nearby states can reach the hospital via the Karnal and Rohtak roads. The Bureau of Energy Efficiency has given the hospital facility a 3-star rating. It was awarded the 2014 FICCI HEAL award for its outstanding branding, marketing, and image building. It has been accredited by NABH for quality standard maintenance.

Pre-treatment and Surgical Procedure

Before Mrs. Dorothy Walter was admitted to the hospital, she was ready for the next surgery. The patient was informed about the specifics of the medications, the tests that would be conducted, what and when to eat, the schedule for the tests, and the surgery by the doctor and her team. A handful of these instructions date back only a few hours, while others date back a month. The MediGence personnel and the healthcare team provided her and her sister with assistance during the entire process. Then, a neurosurgeon operating on a brain tumor created a craniotomy, or opening in the skull, during the procedure. The tumor was carefully removed by the surgeon to protect important brain tissue.

A craniotomy involves making a bone incision in the skull. To gain access to the brain below, a bone flap—a portion of the skull—is removed. The size of a craniotomy varies according to the issue. Brain tumors, hematomas (blood clots), aneurysms or AVMs, traumatic brain injury, foreign objects (bullets), brain swelling, or infection can all be treated with it. After the treatment, the bone flap is often replaced by small plates and screws. The intricacy and size of craniotomies vary. Burr holes are tiny, dime-sized craniotomies; “keyhole” craniotomies are larger, quarter-sized ones. One can employ endoscopes, stereotactic frameworks, or image-guided computers to accurately place devices through these small openings.

Post Treatment

Following a brief hospital observation stay and the successful completion of both surgeries without any difficulties, the patient was released from the hospital. After that, she spent five days in the hospital and twenty-five days in the nation.

The patient duly participated in the follow-up consultation that MediGence arranged for her. Additionally, the organization made sure the patient had a comfortable journey, course of treatment, and stay; she was given a few options for her stay, from which she selected the best one. MediGence handled the hospital transfer, airport pickup, and scheduling of hospital appointments so the patient could comfortably concentrate on her course of treatment.
