In the 1980s, Mr.Yaseen Ahmed’s father was injured by a bullet in his leg. At that time, healthcare support for Somalia was not very accessible. It is unbelievable, but true, that he had to wait 4 years with the bullet embedded in his leg before he was able to meet a surgeon who was part of a mission effort by external agencies. While the surgeon removed the bullet successfully, due to the quality of surgery, our patient was still left with shrapnel in his leg, which he was unaware of.

In the years following the surgery, our patient was absorbed in the routine of daily life. Although there was continuous pus build-up and oozing from the wound, he ignored it and managed with minimal medical treatment. After 36 long years, finding that his responsibilities were finally settled and his financial position quite comfortable, he decided to get the leg re-examined.
He opted to travel to India in 2016 to meet with various super specialists. However, he found that, though the diagnosis was spot-on, the cost of treatment was prohibitive at almost USD 6000 for his surgery and post operative care. While he was discussing the issue with a Somalian friend of his, the gentleman suggested that he get in touch with my-healthconnect.

Willing to try anything, our patient created his profile and shared his reports in the portal. The reports were analysed by Dr. Pradeep Reddy, a leading orthopedic surgeon, who was able to offer the same treatment at a reduced cost, resulting in a huge financial saving of up to 60% on the first quote. Mr. Ahmed was thrilled that he could finally heal completely at an affordable price.
