Congress chief Sonia Gandhi has been admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital for a minor treatment procedure, two days after she was discharged following treatment for fever, dehydration and a shoulder injury.

“Mrs Sonia Gandhi has been admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital for a minor treatment procedure as per previous plan. She is doing well and undergoing physiotherapy and rehabilitation,” Dr S P Byotra, Vice Chairman (Board of Management) of the hospital said today.

In a medical bulletin, the hospital said, she was admitted yesterday “as planned at the time of her discharge from the hospital” on August 14.

The Congress president had visited the hospital yesterday for removal of her stitches from the surgery that she had undergone during her 11-day stay there.

“She is likely to stay at the hospital for a couple of days,” sources said.

“At the time of her discharge from the hospital last week, doctors had said that she was likely to revisit the hospital for further evaluation of her condition. So, she is here for that,” the hospital source said.

Party sources also said she has been admitted again and will be at the hospital for a couple of days.

The 69-year-old leader was admitted to the hospital on August 3 after she had fallen ill during a roadshow in Varanasi. Doctors treating her at the hospital, during the time of discharge, had said she had recovered from her illness and injury to the left shoulder and was stable.

“Mrs Gandhi is likely to visit the hospital for further evaluation of her condition in the coming week,” D S Rana, Chairman of Board of Management of the hospital, had said the day she was discharged.

Gandhi was admitted under the care of Arup Basu, senior consultant, Department of Pulmonology and Chest Medicine and his team.

She was operated upon for a shoulder injury by Prateek Gupta, senior consultant and his team from Department of Orthopaedics and Sanjay Desai from Mumbai.

Gandhi was shifted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital from Army Research and Referral Hospital, where she was rushed soon after her arrival from Varanasi around midnight of August 2.
