Dhaka, Mar 05: Ailing Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader is likely to undergo a bypass surgery at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore where he is now being treated, doctors concerned on Tuesday said.“He (Quader) is likely to undergo a bypass surgery at Mount Elizabeth Hospital here ‘within days’,” Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Director Dr Abu Naser Rizvi, who is staying beside the ailing politician in Singapore, informed BSS in a video clip.

He said Mount Elizabeth Hospital doctors found infections in his kidneys and he could be fit for the surgery once the infections were contained.

“They (doctors) are thinking to carry out a bypass surgery in his heart after controlling the infections . . . his condition, however, is stable now and gradually improving,” Rizvi said.

A Mount Elizabeth Hospital air ambulance flew Quader to Singapore last evening for better medical management as advised by doctors including famous Indian cardiologist Devi Shetty as he was being treated at BSMMU Hospital with critical cardiac condition.

His wife Isratunnesa Quader is also accompanying Quader at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.
