The incident took place in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh.

The 33-year-old had to be kept awake as the surgery was being performed to remove recurrent glioma in the left premotor area abutting the motor cortex. As the doctors conducted the surgery and removed the tumor, Vara Prasad stayed awake and enjoyed Big Boss and the Hollywood film, Avatar. It has further been revealed that he was operated earlier in 2016 in Hyderabad, but had not made a full recovery. The trio of doctors at the Government General Hospital of Guntur, Dr BH Srinivas Reddy, Dr Seshadri Sekhar (neurosurgeons), and Dr Trinadh (Anaesthetist) had performed the surgery.
