Needless to say that SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali 2 is one of the successful films of 2017, and the craze has still not died, but did you know that a patient actually watched her favourite film, Baahubali while going through a surgery?? Weird as this may sound, but yes this happened! A group of doctors performed a complicated brain surgery at a multi-specialty hospital in Guntur while the patient, a 45-year-old woman enjoyed the Prabhas starrer blockbuster. This happened because the surgery required the patient to stay awake and alert. A video of the patient singing a tune from the movie is going viral on social media.
The patient, Vijaya Kumari, a staff nurse at a local government hospital fell ill and tripped last month in the hospital. After undergoing a few medical tests, it was declared by doctors that she has been suffering from Cavernoma – a brain tumour for which doctors suggested a surgery.
The doctors used state of the art Intra Operative Neuro Navigation system to perform the surgery. While talking to a leading daily about the requirement of performing such unique process of operation, Dr. B.H. Srinivas Reddy was quoted as saying:
The patient was diagnosed with a tumour in her left sensory cortex which needed to be removed. But the surgery requires to be conducted while the patient is awake, so even though drugged, she was wide awake throughout the procedure. In fact she was humming the ‘dandalayya’ song during the surgery.
The laptop was placed beside the patient to maintain the mental pressure while performing the operation. The patient was also asked to sing a famous song from Baahubali 2 amidst the operation.
Dr. B.H. Srinivas Reddy, a neurosurgery assistant professor at the Guntur Government Hospital, with his team, was successful in removing the tumour from the patient’s brain.
Meanwhile, after her surgery, Vinaya told reporters that she hoped that her operation would go on a bit longer.
The surgery lasted for about an hour and half, but I hoped it would go on a bit longer, so that I could see the entire film, Vinaya was quoted as saying.
Wow, she was one lucky patient we guess!
