Hi, I wonder what you are describing. It does not read logical that a doctor has cut the respiratory pipe and it needs changing. Respiratory pipe can be injured and may need repair, stenting or resection anastomosis of trachea. If that is needed there are many places in India where this can be done and any trained head and neck surgeon will do this. But underlying cause which is the reason behind the poor general condition needs to be assessed and tackled accordingly. Regards
