This research work has been carried out to investigate the influence of treatment parameter on flow of blood in a stenosed artery in the presence of magnetic field with heat transfer. The momentum equation governing the flow field has been solved by scaling it to dimensionless structure with the aid of some dimensionless parameters. The equations have been analytically solved using modified Bessel equation and by the method of undetermined coefficients in order to obtain the temperature profile and velocity profile of the blood flow. The characteristics of the flow have been derived for a certain set of values RT ; Da; \theta; Gr; Re; Pr; \omega; \delta involved in the model analysis and are presented graphically with the help of software Mathematica. Moreover the velocity of the blood is adopting a wavy pattern as the values of the parameters vary. The study can be useful in providing a perception of the treatment caused by the superfluous consumption of fatty foods hence decreasing the risk of cancer, hypertension and many heart related diseases.
