The patient remained awake during the entire three-hour-long operation and recited the entire Hanuman Chalisa during a crucial part of the surgery conducted by doctors at the premier hospital’s Department of Neurosurgery, Dr Deepak Gupta who was part of the operating team told ANI.

AIIMS has over the last 20 years carried out many, “awake craniotomies” or surgeries in which patients are kept awake to ensure that critical areas of their brain are not damaged. According to authorities at AIIMS more than 500 procedures like these have been completed in 20 years.

According to Dr. Gupta, the woman was given local anesthesia injections for scalp block and painkiller medicines. The patient who aspires to be a school teacher is now under medical supervision at the hospital and is going to be discharged on Saturday.

Nowadays, in the majority of these cases, quick recovery and discharged are possible and Patients with tumors near eloquent areas (motor and speech areas) benefit from such surgeries.
