60 per cent of the patients came from United Arab Emirates (UAE), 20 per cent from Oman and the remaining from Kuwait, Nigeria and Australia.Dr Padmakumar, who has performed 20 surgeries at International Modern Hospital in Dubai in the last two years, said he could perform the surgery at lower cost because the cost of infrastructure facilities was less in the state.
