Saving 7-year-old's life against all odds

Divyansh

Divyansh extends full support to help save the life of 7-year-old patient

A 7-year-old girl in Kolkata, India was diagnosed with congenital brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and was experiencing seizures and headaches.  The treatment needed Onyx™ embolization therapy.  Our team member Divyansh supported the doctor in critical case planning and was present in both the surgical procedures despite the country being on a complete COVID-19 lockdown situation.

' I am proud to be associated with Medtronic for its strong mission that keeps patients at the center of everything that they do. I am humbled by this experience and really happy that I was able to contribute to saving someone’s life’ -says Divyansh

Saptarshi supports the implant of pacemaker tackling all hurdles

When a 65-year-old patient in Kolkata was admitted with symptoms, our team member Saptarshi knew that he had to keep the Mission alive. In spite of lockdown limitations, he worked relentlessly to arrange for the programmer and pacemaker within a few hours and was able to provide the device and support the implant on time. The appreciation messages he received from the patient and doctor were immensely gratifying.

' The experience was quite challenging but I feel really satisfied that I could contribute to human welfare & live up to the Medtronic Mission of alleviating pain, restoring health, and extending life' says Saptarshi
