"Dikshit was operated Friday under the care of her personal cardiologist Ashok Seth at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute by her personal ENT consultant Devinder Rai from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital," said an official statement from the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.

According to doctors, Dikshit was suffering from sinusitis since one year.

"Of late, she started having nasal obstruction which started impeding her day to day work, especially public speaking," it said.

"Her surgery took about an hour and she is stable after the surgery. She will be discharged soon," the statement said.
