|Rohaan- the child who underwent complex cardiac surgery in India|
When four-month-old Rohaan needed a complex cardiac surgery which couldn’t be done in Pakistan, his father couldn’t think of any other destination except India. After all, he wanted the best medical treatment at affordable cost.
The constrained relations between India and Pakistan were not allowing him to get a visa to travel to India, but a tweet to Ms. Sushma Swaraj, the Honourable External Affairs Minister, Govt. of India and she made sure that the child and his parents get the much needed medical visa to come to India for his medical treatment at the earliest.
The child was brought to a famous hospital in Noida, NCR Delhi, and underwent a five-hour long surgery before being treated with an arterial switch with VSD closure. The spokesperson of the hospital said the baby was suffering from D-transportation of great arteries with an abnormal origin of the main arteries and severe pulmonary hypertension and was in need of immediate medical intervention.
The child went back to Pakistan after a successful surgery and uneventful recovery at the hospital in India and a surprise visit by Madam Sushma Swaraj who personally came to see the child and wished him a healthy life.
“The heart of my child beats today for Madame Sushma Swaraj. I would like to request her to open doors for those Pakistanis who have been waiting for medical visas. It is my humble request”, the child’s father made a humble request to the Indian Govt.
India has time and again proved that there is no better place for medical treatment abroad than her. Though the parents of the baby had innumerable medical tourism destination to choose from; they only chose to come to India despite visa issues and constrained relations between Indian and Pakistan.
Not only Rohaan, India has been benevolent in offering treatment, many a time free or subsidized to people in distress from all over the world. No wonder, medical tourism to India tops the minds of people looking for quality treatment at affordable cost.
