Legendary Telugu comedian Brahmanandam recently underwent a heart bypass surgery by experienced heart surgeon Dr Ramakanta Panda at the Asian Heart Institute in Mumbai.
Growing up in Odisha in a village that did not attach much premium on getting educated, Doctor Ramakanta Panda is considered one of the best cardiac surgeons in the world today.
The 62-year-old veteran actor was accompanied by his sons to the hospital for the surgery. The fans and family members are praying for his healthy recovery. Brahmanandam has acted in over 1000 films and also holds the Guinness World Record for that.
Dr Ramakanta Panda’s 99.6% success rate in bypass surgery is widely recognized as a world-class standard. Dr Panda is also called one of the safest heart surgeons in the world and ‘the surgeon with the safest hands’.
Dr Ramakanta Panda has performed over 20,000 cardiac surgeries including over 1800 redo bypass surgeries and over 3000 high risk surgeries, including one on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on January 24, 2009.
