A battle beyond the ordinary aches and pains of life

Ankita had been the epitome of health and vitality. As a yoga instructor and an advocate for wellness, she rarely faced health issues that she couldn’t overcome with her regimen. But when she and her husband decided to start a family, what was supposed to be a journey filled with joy and anticipation turned into a perplexing struggle.

Months turned into years, and the dream of holding their baby seemed to drift further away. It was during a routine wellness check-up that Dr. Smeet Patel, an Endometriosis Expert at Mayflower Women’s Hospital, noticed something amiss. He suggested more detailed examinations, suspecting that the root cause of Ankita’s infertility might be more complex than initially thought.

The turning point in Ankita’s life.

Mayflower Women’s Hospital is renowned for its pioneering work in women’s health, with a special focus on treating endometriosis—a condition often overlooked and misunderstood. Dr. Smeet Patel, alongside his colleague, Dr. Sanjay Patel, a leading fertility specialist, took Ankita’s case to heart. Their dedication to uncovering the hidden aspects of her condition was relentless.

Endometriosis is a challenging adversary, often masquerading as normal menstrual pain, but in reality, it can lead to severe complications, including infertility. Through advanced diagnostic imaging, they discovered extensive endometrial tissue growth beyond Ankita’s uterine lining—a clear diagnosis of endometriosis that finally explained the years of unsuccessful attempts at conceiving.

Facing the diagnosis head-on.

The decision to undergo surgery wasn’t easy. Ankita, buoyed by the unwavering support of her husband and the expertise of her medical team, chose to face her condition head-on. Dr. Vidyasagar, a skilled laparoscopic surgeon, and Dr. Ripal Patel, an adept IVF specialist, were brought into the team. Together, they crafted a meticulous plan to remove the endometrial tissue while preserving Ankita’s fertility.

“The courage Ankita showed was remarkable. Our goal was not just to treat her condition but to restore her hope for a family,”

reflected Dr. Smeet Patel.

The surgery was a testament to the power of collaborative medicine. Dr. Helly Ramanuj, Mayflower Gynaecologist, confirmed the complete removal of the endometrial tissue post-surgery, ensuring that the path to recovery and fertility was clear.

Ankita’s resilience was matched by the dedication of the entire Mayflower Women’s Hospital staff. From the compassionate nurses who cared for her post-operation to the follow-up visits with Dr. Sanjay Patel, ensuring her recovery was on track. Every step was a demonstration of collective effort towards a single goal—Ankita’s well-being and the fulfilment of her dream to become a mother.

A new chapter begins.

Months after the surgery, Ankita’s journey took a joyful turn. The news of her pregnancy was a moment of triumph over adversity, a testament to her courage and the expertise of her medical team.

“Seeing Ankita’s journey from diagnosis to motherhood has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career,”

said Dr. Sanjay Patel, reflecting on the journey.

Back to the heart of her family.

Today, Ankita is not just a yoga instructor; she’s a beacon of hope for many facing similar struggles. Her story is a reminder of the strength within and the incredible potential of modern medicine at Mayflower Women’s Hospital.

“I’m beyond thankful to have been under the care of such a dedicated team. My baby is a healthy, beautiful reminder of our journey, and I feel stronger than ever,”

shared Ankita, holding her newborn with tears of joy.
