Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader underwent a successful bypass surgery at Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital yesterday, said Prof Dr Abu Nasar Rizvi of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University.
Cardiothoracic surgeon Sivathasan Cumaraswamy, a member of the medical board treating Quader, conducted the surgery, said Rizvi, who accompanied Quader to Singapore.
After surgery, Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, has been kept at post-operative care, said the BSMMU physician after briefing of Cumaraswamy on Quader's health.
The minister's family sought blessings from the country's people for Quader's early recovery.
On March 3, Quader was admitted to BSMMU following breathing complications, but tests revealed that he had three blockages in the coronary artery.
He was flown to Singapore the next day for treatment at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
