Delhi woman recites Hanuman Chalisa while undergoing brain tumour surgery at AIIMS
During the entire three-hour-long operation of removing a brain tumour, the patient was kept awake and she resorted to her faith while doctors operated on her.
A 24-year-old woman recited all the 40 verses of Hanuman Chalisa while undergoing a complex brain operation at Delhi's AIIMS. During the entire three-hour-long operation of removing a brain tumour, the patient was kept awake and she resorted to her faith while doctors operated on her.
Speaking to the media, Dr Deepak Gupta said that the woman was given local anaesthesia injections for scalp block and painkiller medicines. He shared the details of the operation and explained the reason why patients are generally kept conscious during such complex surgeries.
As per the AIIMS authorities, over 500 such operations must have been completed in 20 years.
In a similar incident in 2018, a South African jazz musician performed on his operation bed while undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumour. In another incident, a nine-year-old girl from Madhya Pradesh's Gwalior played the piano while undergoing brain surgery at the BIMR Hospital in Gwalior in December last year. Similarly in November 2018, a 30-year-old man who was suffering from epilepsy seizures recited the entire Hanuman Chalisa while undergoing brain surgery.
