Treatment - Cardiac Arrhythmia Treatment

Hi, I am Ibako from Nigeria. My sister and I visited India for her Cardiac Arrhythmia treatment and we had a great experience with Medserg. She was having chest pain and as days were passing the pain was becoming unbearable and even after several other treatments there was no relief from pain. Our family doctor suggested her ICD implant surgery for the treatment of Arrhythmia. Doctor told us to contact Medserg for getting Arrhythmia surgery done in India. I visited the website of Medserg and sent them my query. Thereafter they called me back and informed me everything that was related to the Arrhythmia surgery in India. Medserg made all the arrangements for us to visit India for my sister’s cardiac arrhythmia treatment. After all arrangements were done we headed to India.

The Implantable Cardioverter defibrillator implantation surgery involves making an incision below one of the collarbones. The leads are placed into the heart through the vein that runs next to the collarbone; up to two leads are placed inside the heart. One lead is placed in the ventricle (bottom chamber) and one may be placed in the atrium (top chamber), on the right side of the heart. During the operation, routine electrical measurements of the heart are made to be sure that the leads are positioned correctly. After the leads are in place, they are connected to the ICD. The device is placed under the skin in the upper chest and physician triggers the heart to beat rapidly and then use the Implantable Cardioverter defibrillators to deliver a shock to the heart and stop the rapid beating; this is done two to five times to make sure the Implantable Cardioverter defibrillators functions properly. The procedure takes about 2 hours to complete then a chest x-ray is performed after the Implantable Cardioverter defibrillators implant surgery procedure to be sure the leads are in the proper position.

After Arrhythmia surgery my sister was kept under medical supervision for the next five days and after confirming that the procedure is correctly done she got discharged from the hospital. I am so happy to see her in good health again and now leading a good life without any risk to her life. I am very much thankful to Medserg for their support and incomparable services they provided for ICD implant surgery and made our medical tour successful. The aftercare has been outstanding with medication readily available when needed. The total experience that we have had from Medserg had been outstanding and I would have no hesitation in advising anyone else to do it. I am so pleased with the end result of my sister’s Arrhythmia surgery procedure.

Thank you,

Mr. Ibako
