His heart beats for the poor and the needy, the surgeon who did the first coronary bypass surgery in India, touching several thousands of hearts in over four decades.  Dr. K.M. Cherian’s name needs special mention in the history of cardiology in India.  Dr. K M Cherian is the only Indian whose name is engraved on the stones of Kos Island, Greece, the birth place of Hippocrates - the Father of Medicine.

“A lot is being done to improve the condition of patients and our nation is known for the best and timely care”, said Dr. Cherian as he emphasised on the cardiac care in India. “It is of utmost importance to see that the patients get timely and best of care, so that they can live a fruitful life spreading happiness”, observed Dr. Cherian, while receiving the  Mother  Teresa  Award 2017, from Dr. A.P. Jayaraman at a function organized by Indian Development Foundation, at Frontier Lifeline Hospital,  Chennai on 20th January 2018.

The septuagenarian, founder of Frontier Lifeline Hospital, Dr. K.M.

Dr. Cherian’s great initiatives will strengthen India’s efforts towards cardiac care and welfare of the patients.  Dr. Cherian’s glorious professional career has the rare spark of divinity igniting his tender loving care of humanity and human hearts. The Hand of God has actuated and activated the divine magic scalpel in his hand. His journey began from a Railway Hospital, when technology was not in place and all his accomplishments are the sure mark and seal of his uncanny technical skill, Dr. AP Jayaraman said.

Dr. A.R.K. Pillai, founder President of Indian Development Foundation said that IDF has been working for the improvement of health, education of the deprived children and empowerment of women, belonging to lower economic strata. “In the course of our varied activities in the social field, it has also been our resolve to locate gems of human beings who have outlived the dimensions of normal life and served humanity all through their lives” he added.  Dr. Pillai said IDF has been bestowing Mother Teresa Memorial Award on personalities who have been the change-makers of India.  Earlier recipients of the Mother Teresa Award are : Dr. M.S.Swaminathan (2010), Shri N.
