Sandeep Yadav

Congenital Heart Defect
November, 2017

Sandeep is a playful child and he likes to eat everything. He has 3 siblings. His father, Hari Shankar is a farmer, and has a small piece of land that produces only seasonal crops giving them about Rs.2000 per month. His mother, Shabnam Bano is a housewife.

When Sandeep was five years old his family became aware that he has a heart problem. Initially he was treated at a hospital nearest to their home but after some time he was referred to higher centre. However, due to their financial condition, they could not afford to get proper treatment. When he turned 10, the family consulted Satya Sai Hospital in Bangalore but again due to long waiting list they returned without any treatment. Finally, well-wishers in his village recommended that they visit Fortis Memorial Research Institute in Gurgaon for the surgery.

In February 2016, Sandeep was treated with the support of Fortis Foundation. The doctors also recommended a second surgery for which Sandeep was sent to Fortis Escort hospital in Jaipur.  and He was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Defect which required CT Angiography followed by  Intra Cardiac Repair Surgery.

Sandeep has a successful surgery in November 2017 which was fully supported by RMMMRT and Fortis Foundation.
