Mumbai: Unhappy with the medical treatment meted out to her sister Eman Ahmed at Saifee Hospital, Ms Eman’s sister Shaimaa Selim (32) has approached the Delhi-based branch of UAE’s private hospital Burjeel Hospital to assess her sister’s health and medical treatment. Ms Eman, who weighed 500 kg earlier and now allegedly weighs 173-kg is currently admitted at Saifee Hospital, Marine Lines, Mumbai.

Ms Selim wants the Burjeel hospital doctors to assess the treatment being provided to Ms Eman for weight-reduction and neurological problems by Saifee hospital doctors.


Acting on Ms Selim’s request, Burjeel Hospital’s Delhi branch sent a panel of four doctors to Saifee Hospital on Wednesday who checked on Ms Eman’s progress.

The panel met Saifee hospital CEO Huzaifa Shehabi, bariatric surgeons Dr Muffazal Lakdawala and Dr Aparna Govil Bhasker among others. Ms Eman was admitted to Saifee Hospital on February 11 for a bariatric surgery, at a time she weighed around 500 kg, and stands at 173 kg now.

Ms Selim suspects the treatment provided to Ms Eman is incorrect and therefore sought an independent medical assessment. The panel of doctors who came to examine Ms Eman’s health includes Dr Kamlesh Chakrawarti, neurologist, Tamorish Kole, chairman, Dr Ashish Gupta, head critical care and Dr Vilas Sharma, neurologist.


Dr Bhasker, section chief bariatric surgery of Saifee Hospital said that the panel of doctors were convinced with their treatment for Ms Eman. “We have done the best we have submitted all the reports asked by them. If we were flaunting on Ms Eman’s treatment, we would not have allowed the panel to check Ms Eman. Let her sister do whatever she wants, we are true,” Dr Bhasker said.

Ms Selim said the panel will study the reports and tell her what needs to be done next. “I want my sister’s recovery. Currently, Eman is in pain. She has seizures and is depressed. How can she travel in this state? she asked.
