    What is Polycystic Ovarian Disease?

    PCOD or Polycystic Ovarian Disease is a hormonal abnormality with a metabolic and endocrine disorder. The disorder affects women of reproductive age groups between 12-45 years. The disease may occur in any age group after menarche to menopause. Every 1 out of 10 females suffers from PCOD in the world.

    The disease causes excessive production of male hormones or androgens. The ovaries enlarge and discharge partial or immature eggs. As a result, the eggs turn into cysts. These cysts tend to create complications in female reproductive systems and can even cause infertility.

    After enduring knee pain for the past decade, my mother sought advice from various doctors in Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune. They all recommended knee replacement surgery, but it was only when we discovered Dr. Aashish Arbat and the option of robotics surgery that we made the decision to proceed.

    The surgery took place on June 23, 2023, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. To our astonishment, on the morning of June 24, my mother was able to stand on her own legs and even take a few steps. This remarkable progress was made possible due to the advanced assistance of robotics arm and Artificial Intelligence.

    Dr. Aashish Arbat is an exceptional and highly experienced surgeon, and we are immensely grateful for his expertise. We also extend our appreciation to his colleagues, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Ram, for their excellent skills and compassionate nature. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the entire team for enabling my mother to live a pain-free life
