Discovery Channel to premiere ‘Medical Miracle India’ on 27 July

MUMBAI: Discovery Channel will premiere its new India production, ‘Medical Miracle India’, on 27 July at 9 pm.

The one-hour programme will bring first-hand view of the tribulations, the process and the victorious journey to a healthy life for the children.

‘Medical Miracle India’ is a touching story of conjoined twins – Hasna and Hussaina, from the Badaru family in Nigeria. The programme chronicles the miseries and fear of the Badarus faced since the birth of their twins. Using first person accounts, interviews, surgery footage, 3D graphics and dramatic reconstructions, the programme tells an intriguing story of the victory of undying faith.

After a long wait and rounds of consultations from local doctors, the Badarus were convinced that medical intervention to separate the twins was not possible in their own country. There were tremendous complexities involved in separating the twins, due to which the Badaru family was referred to BLK Specialty Hospital in New Delhi, India.

In a foreign city, far from their homeland, the case of Badaru children was taken over by Indian surgeons, whose attempt was to surgically separate them. This was the twins’ only chance at life and a normal childhood. The question was – could they survive the hazardous medical procedure? After much tests and deliberations, in May 2013, a team of Indian doctors with diverse expertise collaborated to pull off one of the most complex successful surgeries in the world.

Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific Executive Vice President and General Manager – South Asia and Head of Revenue, Pan- Regional Ad Sales & Southeast Asia Rahul Johri said, “Discovery Channel, through its new engaging India programming, draws spotlight on the India’s scientific and technological advancements. The new programme ‘Medical Miracle India’ presents a rare and in-depth account of the skill, intensity and innovations in the field of surgery in the country.”
