Welcome to Hrudaya Foundation, a non-profit organization, has been established primarily to raise funds that will be used to provide treatment to poor children affected with congenital heart diseases. Hrudaya also strives to create awareness about congenital and acquired heart diseases among general masses and doctors. Leading industrialists, corporate heads, and doctors are its patrons.

Dr. Gopichand Mannam graduated from Guntur Medical College, Guntur, AP, in April 1981. In May 1981 he went to Jamaica, West Indies, where he developed his initial skills in surgery. In 1983 he went to the UK to pursue his career in general surgery. He passed FRCS in General surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, in 1986 and The Royal College of Surgeons, Glasgow in 1987.

Dr Gopichand said the training centre, which would train one student at a time, would help young surgeons learn the technique. Seniors had the luxury of using the procedure on patients directly as they could switch over to the normal procedure, if need be. But the young doctors did not have this luxury due to lack of enough experience. The three-week training schedule included training on a `virtual heart' (a trademark product of Chamberlain of the US).
