Open Heart Surgery Possible In Himachal Pradesh Now
The state-run Indira Gandhi Medical College (IGMC) hospital will begin performing open-heart surgeries on patients in Himachal Pradesh.

'The IGMC hospital has built a new unit equipped with the latest equipment including light monitoring system, life support system, auto intensive care light, automatic operation bed and latest x-ray machines for offering this facility,' said Dr Haryal Chauhan, senior medical superintendent, IGMC.

The new unit will be launched Saturday by Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh. Officials say the facility will be one of the cheapest in northern India.

Serious heart ailments like a hole in the heart can be operated here for Rs.50,000, while a damaged artery can be replaced for Rs.60,000.
