    Bhaskar’s condition led to irregular heartbeats and insufficient blood supply, causing a range of health complications. His condition necessitated the heart transplant, a complex procedure that took five hours to complete. The surgery involved the meticulous removal of Bhaskar’s old heart, implanting the new one donated by a brain-dead individual, and reconnecting all blood vessels and valves with utmost precision.

    Commenting on the achievement, Dr. Vishal V Khante said, “Following the successful surgery, Bhaskar is on the path to recovery, and is gradually regaining his ability to engage in daily activities. Previously confined to bed due to extreme fatigue, he can now walk significant distances and looks forward to resuming his normal life. However, post-surgery, Bhaskar requires intensive monitoring and ongoing medication to prevent organ rejection, and our team is constantly monitoring his condition.”
