Dr Kiron Varghese, the head of Cardiology at St John’s Medical College and Hospital in Bengaluru, has decided to do something about the fact that cardiovascular diseases are a leading cause of death in India and that the underprivileged are left out of treatments because of the sheer expensiveness of these surgeries. For this reason, he decided to perform angioplasty for 30 people free of cost. He raised funds from his friends and family. All these surgeries will be performed by 19th February 2019. It may seem that 30 is not a substantial number of surgeries, but the 30 beneficiaries will be bestowed upon with the gift of life. In every sense of the word, doctors like Dr, Varghese are a blessing to the society!
