Chennai/ Bengaluru: Dr Shivakumara Swami, the 111-year-old pontiff of Siddaganga Mutt successfully underwent three-hour long liver bypass surgery, informed the sources of Dr Rela Insitute and Medical Centre, Chromepet, Chennai.

Speaking to reporters after the surgery, Dr Ravindra of BGS Hospital informed that the seer will gain his consciousness in few hours. 

Dr Mohamed Rela of Dr Rela Insitute and Medical Centre has now set a record by conducting a successful surgery of the 111-year-old seer. Dr Rela had set a record by conducting a successful liver transplant on a five-day-old baby two decades ago.

On December 1 the seer had undergone a surgery wherein stents were implanted to his liver tube at the BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals in Bengaluru and was discharged recently. However, he is frequently developing an infection with symptoms of fever ever since he underwent stent implantation for the first time in 2016.
