In the article titled ‘Bypass surgery can be avoided in many cases' published in Hindu News Paper. Dr. Pratiksha G. Gandhi, Founder, Institute of Preventive Cardiology (IPC) at Mumbai has stressed the need for non-invasive treatments like EECP and the importance of low fat vegetarian diet, regular exercise, yoga and counseling for stress management as proven and preventive factors for staying healthy at heart.

She regrets the commercialization that crept into Medical field and reflects her concern for enlightening people that around 70-90 percent of heart patients with critical arteries blockage need not undergo Bypass surgeries. Dr.Pratiksha, explores her thoughts in a book titled ‘Bypassing Bypass Surgery' with her co-author Dr. Elmer Cranton of Harvard Medical School, that bypass surgery is applicable only for patients who are facing low pumping of blood and are not responding to medicine. She also highlighted the point of Dr. Braun Wald, who quoted that in chronic cases of heart disease, bypass surgery would not reduce the ailment.

She also added that IPC has 95% success rates in non-invasive treatments and has till now 30,000 patients who underwent cardiac rehabilitation programme. At last but not least she stresses the point of prevention of heart attack through awareness as the primary mission of IPC.
