Rajitha Senaratne To Undergo Surgery Tomorrow: Ministry

Minister of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Rajitha Senaratne, who was admitted to Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore, will undergo a surgery tomorrow, the Ministry said.

In a press release, the Minister’s Media Secretary Nipun Ekanayake said that this is not an emergency surgery as stated by some media.

Test reports revealed that two blood vessels were partially blocked and the surgery will be carried out to remove these blocks, the statement said. It also added that prior diagnosis of the condition made it possible to take medical treatment before it turned serious.

Senaratne was admitted to a private hospital last Friday afternoon and was transferred to Mount Elizabeth Hospital the following day.
