Polycystic ovarian disease – It is a hormonal disorder that affects nearly 10 – 15% of patients. It has a profound effect on a woman’s health and self-esteem. It is a hormonal disorder where the ovaries do not produce sufficient quantities of hormones that are required for the follicle to mature. As a result, the follicles remain in the ovaries and eventually turn into cysts.
It affects all age categories and the symptoms may be irregular or no menstrual cycle, infertility, increased hair growth on the face, chest etc, acne and oily skin, hair fall and weight gain or obesity. Later on, the patient may develop high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes etc. She is also at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and estrogen associated cancers like endometrial and breast cancer.
Treatment for the polycystic disease is tailored according to the patient and her symptoms.
Weight management is an important issue in patients of polycystic ovarian disease. Active exercises and good eating habits go a long way in controlling the polycystic ovarian disease.

Myomectomy – Removal of fibroid is called myomectomy. Usually, myomectomy is done in the younger age group where the uterus is required for childbearing. Depending on the number, size, and location of the route and type of myomectomy are decided.
laparoscopic surgery – These surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries which require minimum cutting and stitching. These surgeries are called keyhole surgeries.
