 Entertainment Has Become Instrumental in Saving Life

The epic blockbuster Bahubali has gone much beyond the cinema theatres and has now reached the operation theatres, where, doctors claim the film has helped them with a surgery.

Forty-three-year-old Vinaya Kumari, working as a nurse, suffered fits and was later detected with brain tumour. On September 21, she was operated upon, at a Multi-specialty Hospital in Guntur.

As it was important for the patient to remain conscious through the entire procedure, the doctors decided to screen "Bahubali" on a laptop, to keep the patient awake and engaged. With its success, doctors are now referring to the surgery as "Bahubali Brain Surgery".

Dr Srinivas, neurosurgeon said, "In this surgery it was important for the patient to stay conscious and the film managed to do exactly that. The patient did not panic through the process, in fact, she was enjoying and humming the songs."

In July this year, doctors in Bangalore had performed a similar procedure on a musician who was made to play the guiter while undergoing brain surgery. Abhishek Prasad was awake during the four-hour surgery as doctors performed 'radio-frequency ablation' to correct a rare condition.
