Kevlaben, who hails from Surat's rural area, was suffering from cardiac problems since a long time. She went for an angioplasty treatment from Mumbai when she had a heart attack. Later, she went for stent treatment twice in Surat which did not improve her condition. Unfortunately, on April 5, 2014, considered as a dark day in her life, she again had a critical heart attack and immediately got admitted to Wockhardt Hospital, Surat.

Dr. Alok Ranjan, Senior Cardiologist in the city performed the basic treatment but her condition was improving. After studying her case, Dr. Kalpesh Malik, expert cardiac surgeon, decided to do bypass surgery on her.

In general, if a patient gets a heart attack, any type of surgery is not advisable. It could be very critical and difficult. In the past, the patient had undergone angioplasty, and hence, Dr. Malik decided for bypass surgery immediately to save her life.

'After joining Wockhardt Hospital, this was my first critical case and Kevlaben was very serious when she was admitted in the hospital, so we had no option other than bypass surgery. We tried the shock treatment and pumping treatment but there was no improvement and her situation continued worsening. So, we quickly took the decision and started bypass surgery at 9 a.m. It is our pleasure that Kevlaben is out of danger now and we succeeded in that critical life-saving task. We have removed 3 blockages and stent. Now Kevlaben is safe' stated Dr. Kalpesh Malik in a press conference.

Dr. Pankaj Nathvani, Center Head, Wockhardt Hospital added, 'This press conference is to spread awareness in people about bypass surgery. At Wockhardt Hospital, we have well equipped facility and experienced doctors for the treatment of any heart-related problems'
