Bernie Bush recovering after surgery at Health City, family says it was successful

Government backbencher and deputy House Speaker Bernie Bush went under the knife today (6 June) for bypass surgery at Health City Cayman Islands.

A statement from his family issued a short while ago says the procedure was successful, it was performed by Dr. Binoy Chattuparambil and his team. The surgery on the West Bay North MLA started around 6 a.m. and lasted several hours. The MLA was hospitalised Friday (1 June) evening after doctors found a blockage in his heart.

According to the statement, “Bernie’s recovery is expected to take several weeks and he should be able to receive visitors by early next week. He is in some pain, but with God’s grace everything went well.”

The family said they are also thankful for the outpouring of support from the community both inside and outside of Cayman and for the many prayers that were received.
“The recovery and healing process starts now and we ask you to continue to pray for him,” the Bush family statement added.
The family added their thanks to the staff at HCCI and the quick referral by doctors at the HSA who first identified the problem and made the referral to HCCI.
