Request for a Expert Opinion

*With this information, I as a user, give MediGence the permission to access my healthcare related data and information to help me get the expert opinion.


Sadia Tasnim, a 22-year-old from Bangladesh, was overweight and looking for weight loss surgery. The signs and symptoms faced by her included breathlessness, fatigue, and increased sweating. She received some treatment in Bangladesh, but she was not happy with the results. So she made the decision to go to India for further medical treatment.

For advice and therapy, Sadia Tasnim was looking for a reputable gastroenterologist. While looking for doctors online, she came across MediGence, a global medical travel network. She asked a question in an email to MediGence. After getting in touch with her and asking for all of her paperwork, the case manager provided her with a list of the top medical facilities and practitioners. She chose Dr. Pradeep Jain.

Dr. Pradeep Jain, a surgeon of excellence, is regarded as one of New Delhi, India’s top General, and laparoscopic Surgeons. MBBS, MS in general surgery, MChs in surgical gastroenterology/gastrointestinal surgery, and surgical oncology are the degrees that Dr. Pradeep Jain has earned. He is a general surgeon, surgical oncologist, bariatric surgeon, and gastro-intestinal surgeon par excellence with a total of 36 years of experience, roughly 30 of which were spent as a specialist. Crohn’s disease or severe diverticulitis, stomach cancer, pancreatic head cancer, colorectal or colon cancer,  and morbid obesity are a few of the conditions the surgeon frequently treats.

Pre-Treatment and Surgical Process

On 24th Feb 2022, Ms. Sadia Tasnim flew to India with her parents. The MediGence Team met her at the airport and made all of the accommodations. The group made sure she had access to the hotel’s top amenities. MediGence scheduled her appointments with the doctors in advance.

The specialists looked over the patient’s medical data once they got to the hospital. The day before the patient arrived, pre-treatment testing began. After recommending a few tests and analyzing the data, the doctors advised a Sleeve Gastrectomy. Throughout the course of the treatment, the MediGence staff helped the patient in every way possible.

A surgical weight-loss surgery is a sleeve gastrectomy, sometimes known as a vertical sleeve gastrectomy. Laparoscopic surgery is frequently used for this operation, which involves incorporating tiny instruments through numerous tiny incisions in the upper belly. The stomach is removed from the body during a sleeve gastrectomy, leaving behind a tube-shaped stomach that is roughly the size and shape of a banana. The ability to eat depends on how much food one can fit in their stomach. The surgery also triggers hormonal adjustments that help with weight loss. The same hormonal changes also help in treating diseases like high blood pressure or heart disease that are linked to obesity.

Post Treatment

After treatment, she eventually started to recover. She was able to complete his recovery throughout her 7 days in India. For every step of the treatment, the MediGence team worked with the hospital and doctors. Throughout the process, there were no difficulties. The patient was admitted for 3 days.

Ms. Sadia Tasnim expressed gratitude to MediGence for playing a crucial part in her recovery from her condition and in delivering top-notch care. MediGence assisted her in obtaining a variety of additional services, including filing visa applications, coordinating airport pickups, coordinating hospital transfers, scheduling follow-up visits, and coordinating hospital appointments, in addition to providing professional assistance in choosing the best doctor, hospital, and location for his medical care.

The patient and her parents were happy with the way the treatment worked out. She is especially grateful for the excellent care provided by the medical professionals and nursing workers at Fortis Hospital, Shalimar Bagh. Team MediGence sends Ms. Sadia Tasnim best wishes for a prosperous future.
