Salman undergoes 8-hour surgery in Pittsburgh

On Wednesday night, Salman underwent successful neuro-surgery in Pittsburgh. Further medical treatment would be determined by the efficacy of the surgery.


Jubilant after the staggering success of Salman's Eid release Bodyguard, his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri who also produces the film says, "Bhai doing fine. His medical procedure happened yesterday in Pittsburgh. This was the first step. Now the doctors will monitor him to study the results. He was in the operation theatre for eight hours. He is under observation for three days. Then the doctors will take a call on the further course of treatment. God willing, he will heal soon."


Earlier on Monday night-Tuesday morning, Salman Khan left for an undisclosed part of the US for treatment for his neurological condition.


It now turns out Salman went to Pittsburgh in the US which is known to have the finest treatment for his condition Trigeminal Neuralgia. The University of Pittsburgh has a special centre for research and treatment of Salman's condition. The world's best neuro-surgeons specializing in Trigeminal Neuralgia are to be found in Pittsburgh.


Apparently, the Khan family did a load of internet research on the best possible place for Salman's treatment before zeroing in on Pittsburgh.


While the original plan of travelling via New York had to be dropped because of Hurricane Irene, the flash-decision to leave on Monday night rather than after Eid, as planned, eventuated in much confusion and chaos in the Khan household.


Says a source, "It was decided that Salman's parents who were really keen to accompany him would stay back since Bhai didn't want Eid and Ganesh Chaturthi to not be celebrated in their household. Salman's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and sister Alvira wanted to accompany Bhai. But Bhai insisted that Atul stay back for the release of Bodyguard. Finally, it was decided that Bhai's sister and brothers Alvira, Arbaaz and Sohail would accompany him."


But when the flight departed it was Arbaaz, Alvira and Salman's business manager who left with Salman.


Sohail admits he got left behind. "I couldn't get a place in the flight! Because of the hurricane all flights are going full. There's a backlog of around 3,000 delayed and cancelled flights for the US. So, Bhai left with Alvira and Arbaaz."


It isn't known how long Salman's treatment would take. However, sources confirm that Salman would be doing only Kabir Khan's Ek Tha Tiger, for the rest of this year.
