Nihad had been undergoing Parkinson's treatment for 8 years but faced extreme side effects due to the medication which included giddiness, nausea, belching. Her disease had also progressed to a level where she was completely dependent on her family for daily activities which disheartened her immensely.
After trying many hospitals in numerous countries, she came to Columbia Asia where our team tailored a treatment to cater to her complex condition. About six months after the procedure, her tremor and gait issues improved significantly, helping her lead a better life.
After retirement Chris Hawks started gaining weight which he tried to lose by exercising. But he stopped exercising because of ankle sprain and the fat came back fast.
