Krishnan Ramachandran


This is the story of Krishnan Ramachandran who is a resident of Chennai and was earlier going through difficulty in losing weight. He discussed the things with the doctor and the doctor suggested him to have bariatric surgery instead. Krishnan Ramachandran who was unaware of the symptoms was told that he was unable to lose weight naturally that’s why he should go for bariatric surgery. Upon performing the surgery, the doctors found something different with the liver. Krishnan Ramachandran was told that he was not fine from inside. Instead, he was advised to see a gastroenterologist for his proper treatment and find an answer.

How did Krishnan Ramachandran receive help?

  • Krishnan Ramachandran thought of seeking help from Credihealth instead of going to various places and landing with the decision.

  • He received a consultation with the best gastroenterologist at Fortis Malar Hospital Chennai and found the doctor helpful for him.

  • He discussed his liver issues and had a few tests for the same. It was discovered that he had esophageal varices, a rare kind of disease that causes the need for a liver transplant if the disease is not treated timely.

  • After studying the case history of Krishnan’s family, the doctors found that the disease was genetic as Krishnan’s family including his mother, aunt and uncle had to go through the same disease and they died because of the same reason.

  • The doctors found that Krishnan was going through the alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, which causes difficulty in losing weight.

  • Krishnan Ramachandran was living in his 30s with his wife and two children. He was living happily until he discovered the need to lose weight because of certain health issues.

  • He waited in the hope to get a liver transplant soon. It became two years and he had to wait until a man appeared in the hospital and asked for a liver transplant and the immediate death after the same.

The man maintained his identity to be secretive and asked the doctor to do the work instead he will go somewhere else. Being in the time of need, the doctor informed Krishnan Ramachandran that they have found the person who is ready to provide liver. But, Krishnan was not provided any information regarding the donor. Krishnan Ramachandran was lucky to receive timely help from both Fortis Malar Hospital Chennai and Credihealth, who both had a great hand in the transformation of his life. But, personally, Krishnan was unhappy from the inside after he received the information that the donor doesn't want to leak his identity, nor does he want to meet anyone.

It is the story of Rajat, who was born with his left body paralyzed. Infant paralysis often takes place because of prolonged delivery and the passing of infection from the mother to the newborn. There can be various reasons for newborn paralysis, and the most amazing ones include brain injury, nerve injury, infection, and abnormal nervous conditions. In the case of the newborn Rajat, it was a nervous breakdown that affected the spine and made the child go through paralysis. The child named Rajat would now sleep all day long without having any kind of activity. If anyhow he tries to maintain his posture, he used to develop extreme pain in his body making him cry the whole day long.


How did Rajat’s parents receive help?

  • After consulting an experienced orthopedic doctor at Fortis Malar Hospital Chennai, the parents came to know that there was a solution to the disease.

  • Although Rajat was born with it there could be chances that he could overcome the mobility issues.

  • After seeking suggestions from the side of the doctors, Rajat’s mother started having massage therapy for Rajat regularly. She would give a regular massage to a 5 years old kid, making his limbs develop a certain amount of mobility.

  • Rajat could now take the help of a wheelchair and could decide where to go himself.

  • For the parents, finances were not the issue but the health of their child was. The parents had their child admitted to the school, where Rajat had to go through daily fights to use the washroom and study along with normally born children.

Although it was a difficult task for both Rajat and his parents, with the help of Fortis Malar Hospital Chennai, Rajat was given regular doses of steroids. The parents eventually came to know that the use of Plasma exchange (PLEX) therapy could help the child with the particular syndrome he developed since birth. At the age of 12, he had to go through therapy and remained constantly in touch with the doctors. Rajat is now 28 years old seeking his medical assistance from a second family, the doctors of course. Although he is now capable of walking with the help of a stick, he is now seeking rehabilitation for getting diagnosed and acknowledged with his body defect.
