Prasad, an IT professional working in Nottingham UK had received treatment for Gastrointestinal ailments from ASTER MIMS a year ago and had returned to UK after completion of the treatment. Due to coronavirus outbreak and UK hospitals being occupied with coronavirus emergencies seeking treatment locally was very difficult.
Prasad contacted Dr. Abhishek Rajan, Senior Gastrointestinal Surgeon at ASTER MIMS as his condition deteriorated. With the help of district administration and state health department all necessary formalities and permissions were obtained for him to fly down to Kozhikode yesterday morning in a chartered flight.
The chartered flight carrying Prasad Das and family reached Karipur airport on Friday morning at 9 am and was taken to the ASTER MIMS Hospital in a specially arranged ambulance. Initial screening for coronavirus was conducted at the airport. Aster MIMS Calicut also happens to be the only facility certified to conduct the confirmatory test for COVID – 19 in Kerala.
Apart from Dr. Abhishek Rajan, ASTER MIMS Gastro Intestinal Sciences Head, DR. Anish Kumar, Gastro Intestinal Surgery Head, Dr. Sajeesh Sahadevan, Dr. Seethalakshmi, Dr. Naushif are attending to the patient.
This news is a proud moment for the health care system in Kerala and all international patients looking for treatments in the state can be helped provided all necessary approvals from authorities are in place. At this moment Kerala is one of the safest zones for treatment for all domestic and international patients seeking high quality treatment.
