Dr Bedi pioneered the technique of beating heart surgery which with its modifications is being used all over the world . He also innovated a technique to save a leg by transplanting a hand artery . His work has been recognized by International experts .

Dr Bedi explained that in beating heart surgery the heart is allowed to beat while the area to be operated is stabilized . This does away with the heart lung machine which besides being harmful for the patient is also very expensive . Dr Bedi was more proud of the fact that all his innovations have taken place in Punjab . Besides medical journals they have also been included in Books .
