Undescended Testis In Children
What is an Undescended Testis?
An undescended testis is a defect that happens before birth when a testicle has still not moved to its correct position, which is the scrotum or the bag of skin hanging below the penis.
This condition usually affects one testicle, but, in a few cases, the condition may effect both testicles, thereby keeping them undescended.
An undescended testis is commonly seen in premature male child.
In most cases, Undescended testis gets rectified on its own, as the undescended testis moves to its appropriate position within the first few months of life.
However, if this condition is not corrected on its own till 6 months of age, then a surgery is required to move the testicle in to its correct position.

What are the signs or symptoms of an Undescended Testicle
If you cannot see or feel a testicle in the baby’s scrotum, then this may be due to an undescended testicle.
When the foetus is still developing, testicles are formed inside the abdomen.
In normal development of the foetus, the testicles descend from the abdomen, into the scrotum, through the tube-like passage, into the groin (inguinal canal).
The above process, happens in the last couple of months of normal foetal development. When this process is halted or delayed, it leads to the condition called Cryptochordism or Undescended Testicle.

Diabetes and Cholesterol Connection
Triglycerides.These are fats from the food you eat that circulate in your body, which can be stored in fat cells. Triglycerides aren’t actually a type of cholesterol, but their levels are measured along with HDL and LDL to see if you are at risk for, or have, atherosclerosis. (That's when fatty deposits build up in your artery walls, restricting blood flow and leading to a variety of issues like aneurysms and heart attacks.)

The main risk from high cholesterol is coronary heart disease, which can lead to death from a heart attack. If your cholesterol level is too high, cholesterol can build up in the walls of your arteries.

If you have diabetes, that can upset the balance between levels of HDL, or “good” cholesterol, and LDL or “bad” cholesterol.

Take Care of Your Heart
These lifestyle changes can help lower your risk for heart disease or keep it from getting worse, as well as help you manage diabetes:
Follow a healthy diet.
Aim for a healthy weight.
Get active.
Manage your ABCs:
A: Get a regular A1C test to measure your average blood sugar over 2 to 3 months; aim to stay in your target range as much as possible.
B: Try to keep your blood pressure below 140/90 mm Hg (or the target your doctor sets).
C: Manage your cholesterol levels.
s: Stop smoking or don’t start.

Manage stress. Stress can raise your blood pressure and can also lead to unhealthy behaviors, such as drinking too much alcohol or overeating. Instead, visit a mental health counselor, try meditation or deep breathing, get some physical activity, or get support from friends and family.

PHPC Compound is the patent and proprietary medicine developed by Benmoon Pharma Research Pvt Ltd., Ahmedabad. The entire study was planned to do evaluation of efficacy and safety of PHPC Compound in experimental animal’s models. First it was screened in-vitro using breast cancer cell line using MTT assay method, wherein it has shown significant reduction in viable cancerous cells.
After promising result in in-vitro study, safety was checked using Acute toxicity study (OECD 425), wherein it was found safe till the dose of 2000-5000mg/kg, orally.

Further, for long term usage of this formulation, its sub-chronic (90 days) oral toxicity study was done (AYUSH & OECD 408 guideline) in rats and guinea pigs, wherein it shows no significant toxic sign, symptoms and in histology too. To check whether it retards toxic effects against chemotherapeutic agents induced toxicity, it was evaluated against 5-FU model, wherein also it has shown chemo-preventive activity.

To check its effectiveness against breast cancer, it was further screened against DMBA-induced cancer model, wherein also it has shown significant reduction in occurrence of tumor, reduction in tumor size and volume. DMBA induced breast cancer by DNA mutation and increasing free radicals level. The treatment of PHPC Compound reduces free radical levels as evident by significant increase in SOD and Catalase level. Further, it reduces serum level of SGOT and SGPT level, which usually get secreted during tissue damage.
Further to check the effectiveness of the PHPC Compound on DNA damage in individual cells of cancer cell line. In the present study, in 5-FU (5.0μg/ml ) treated cell line, there was reduction in % Head and increase in % Tail, which indicates DNA damage in L929 and MCF-7 cell line. Wherein in case of Test drug (20, 40 and 60 μg /ml) groups, there was significant increase in % Head and decrease in % Tail, which indicates that test drug provides chemo preventive effects. In brief, PHPC Compound has shown promising level of safety and efficacy in experimental animal models.

The purpose of the research study on cancer is to develop safe and effective methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, treat, and, ultimately, cure the collections of diseases we call cancer. Ideas for new cancer research studies are often inspired by findings from earlier research, research on other cancers, and even findings from research done on other diseases, such as diabetes or immune disorders. Its aim is to reduce the number of deaths from cancer.

Dr. Dinesh Kacha Diabetes Reversal Through Ayurvedic Lifestyle
For more than 32 years, Dr. Dinesh Kacha has led the health care industry with innovative products and discoveries. Known as the 'Follower of Ayurveda , Dr. Dinesh Kacha compiles traditional blend of ancient wisdom with modern-day Science to develop research based formulations for patients across generations and geographies with his deep-rooted philosophy of creating perfect health for everybody.

Dr. Dinesh Kacha addresses the root cause of insulin resistance and lack of insulin, reversing diabetes through ayurvedic lifestyle & fixing the metabolic damage  that will not just prevent the disease but also reverse it as his researches believes that focus on lifestyle through the approach of Aahar Vihar Ausadh  based on ayurvedic principles and processes will help the management of disease.

The underlying cause of diabetes varies by type. But, no matter what type of diabetes you have, it can lead to excess sugar in your blood. Too much sugar in your blood can lead to serious health problems. To understand diabetes, first you must understand how glucose is normally processed in the body.
Glucose comes from two major sources: food and your liver.

Sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, where it enters cells with the help of insulin.
Your liver stores and makes glucose.
When your glucose levels are low, such as when you haven’t eaten in a while, the liver breaks down stored glycogen into glucose to keep your glucose level within a normal range.

Metabolic damage occurs when our body’s metabolism (essentially how our bodies utilize energy) has adjusted into “survival mode” from periods of intense restriction, exercise, and/or stress. It’s actually better described as ‘metabolic acclimation’ because it has acclimated or gotten used to the new ‘norm’ of energy utilization it is experiencing.

Research suggests that people who are obese are up to 80 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who are not. In obese persons, cells of fat tissues have to process more nutrients than they can manage. The stress in these cells triggers an inflammation that releases a protein known as cytokines.

Studies suggest that abnormal fat causes fat cells to release
‘pro-inflammatory’ chemicals, which can make the body less sensitive to the insulin it produces by disrupting the function of insulin responsive cells and their ability to respond to insulin.
Diabetes cases in the world have increased due to drastic change in lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits and high stress levels. People with diabetes are 2 to 4 times more likely to suffer from heart disease or a stroke as compared to those who do not have diabetes. Diabetes is a condition that hinders your body's ability to respond to insulin that eventually leads to abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, leading to spiked blood sugar levels
Ayurveda can control diabetes. Since the disease is an acquired lifestyle disorder, Ayurveda can trigger the remission process. The focus must be to reduce the dependency on medication (Ayurveda/Allopathy) and to adapt to a newer, improved lifestyle. Efforts must be made to improve your diet, daily routines, yoga or exercise schedule, and stress management techniques.

ALL About to know Fistula
Dr. Samrat Jankar is one of the most expert reliable and ethical fistula specialists in Pune. He is a qualified surgical gastroenterologist and colorectal surgeon and had been awarded a gold medal for fellowship in colorectal surgery by the ACRISI (Association of Colon & Rectal Surgeons of India) board. Furthermore, he has been an international faculty member in this field. Recently, he has been awarded the First Prize for the best video presentation at FISTULACON 2021 for the LASER LIFT procedure in complex fistula in Ano in an international summit organized by ACRSI. He delivered talks on fistula at many national and international conferences and had a live demonstration of fistula surgery at many conferences. He had trained many surgeons for LASER fistula surgery. Dr. Samrat Janakr had been trained for complex fistula in ano surgery under renowned fistula surgeons Dr. Parvez Sheikh (Mumbai) and Dr. Arun Rajunasakul (Bangkok). He is an expert in many surgical procedures for fistula treatment and also pioneered his own surgical technique PILTEC for complex fistula treatment which has the highest success rate. Dr. Samrat Jankar had successfully Performed more than 5000+ successful Anal Fistula Surgeries.

Fistula (Bhagandar) Treatment in Pune
An anal fistula is a tunnel connecting the skin near the anus to the inside of the bowel (usually the rectum). This means that the inside of the bowel is connected to the outside of the body through an additional opening. An anal fistula often results from a previous or current anal abscess. As many as 50% of people with an abscess get a fistula. However, a fistula can also occur without an abscess.

Fistula in Ano treatment options
Surgery is usually necessary to treat an anal fistula as they usually do not heal by themselves or only with medication. The goal of any surgery for a fistula in ano is to balance between getting rid of the fistula and protecting the anal sphincter muscles, which could cause incontinence if damaged. In fistula treatment in Pune what matters most is recurrence and incontinence, the only expert in fistula surgery will have a clear understanding of it. Looking for the best doctor for fistula in ano treatment in Pune, Dr. Samrat Jankar an Internationally recognized surgeon at KAIZEN Gastro care, Wakad Pune offers holistic treatment for complex fistula with the least recurrence rate & almost zero incontinence rate.

Types of Fistual in Ano
Fistulas are classified by their relationship to parts of the anal sphincter complex (the muscles that allow us to control our stool). They are classified as

Intersphincteric is the most common and Extrasphincteric is the least common. These classifications are important in helping the surgeon make treatment decisions

What is Complex Fistula?
The Standards Committee for the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) divided anal fistula into simple and complex types based on the complexity of fistula, risk of recurrence, and risk of incontinence.

Simple fistula:

Simple fistulas are those that are Intersphincteric or low Transsphincteric involving less than 30% of the external sphincter where the risk of incontinence is low.

Complex fistula:

“Complex” fistulas included those with

More than 30% sphincter muscle involvement
Anterior fistulas in female patients
Recurrent fistulas
Fistula associated with preexisting fecal incontinence, inflammatory bowel disease, or prior radiation.
There are several different procedures. The best option for you will depend on the position of your fistula and whether it’s a single channel or branches off in different directions. Surgery aims to heal the fistula while avoiding damage to the sphincter muscles, the ring of muscles that open and close the anus, which could potentially result in loss of bowel control.

The main options are outlined here:
1. Fistulotomy:
The most common type of surgery for anal fistulas is a fistulotomy. This involves cutting along the whole length of the fistula to open it up so it heals as a flat scar. A fistulotomy is the most effective treatment for many anal fistulas, although it’s usually done in simple fistula where the risk of incontinence is less. This procedure is not suitable in complex fistula in ano in cases where the risk of incontinence is considered too high, sphincter preserving procedures are recommended.

At KAIZEN Gastro Care, Dr. Samrat Jankar Fistula Specialist Surgeon in Pune uses a LASER as an adjunct to Fistulectomy to minimize the risk of damage to the sphincter muscle. Thus, with the added advantage of Laser, the chances of post-operative pain will be negligible.

2. Ligation of the intersphincteric Fistula Tract (LIFT):
The ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) procedure is a best treatment for fistulas that pass through the anal sphincter muscles, where a fistulotomy would be too risky. This is a Highly efficient procedure with almost no recurrences or incontinence. Dr. Samrat Jankar, a well-known colorectal surgeon in Pune, specializes in complex fistula surgery

Moreover, he is adept in LIFT, an advanced procedure for fistula treatment in Pune. Being well-trained with the LIFT procedure under Dr. Arun Rajunasakul (pioneer of the LIFT procedure, to date, Dr. Jankar has performed more than 1000 modified LASER LIFT procedures with excellent results. Had been awarded the best video award at an international conference for the management of complex fistula.

3. FiLaC ( Fistula-tract Laser Closure):
It is a minimally invasive fistula-in-ano surgery that keeps the sphincter intact. This technique attempts to gently remove the anal fistula by using laser energy. The flexible, all-around radiating fiber-optic probe is inserted into the fistula tract from the outside. Then the laser is slowly withdrawn. The inflammatory tissue is destroyed in a controlled manner and the fistula tract contracts. The anal gland that originally caused the fistula is inactivated


Video-assisted anal fistula treatment (VAAFT) is a new minimally invasive and sphincter-saving endoscopic treatment for complex fistulas. The fistula tract and internal fistula are localized using a fistuloscope inserted through the external opening and under direct vision fistula tract is destroyed from the inside and closure of the internal opening is done by stapling or suturing or cutaneous-mucosal flap.


No surgical wounds on the buttocks or perianal region.
The internal opening is precisely located which is important in the treatment of any fistula.
Less chance of damage to the sphincter muscle
Potential drawbacks

The biggest argument against VAAFT is its high rate of recurrence (~30%)
Higher cost of treatment
The fistula plug is a 100% synthetic bio-absorbable scaffold. This plug is placed in the fistula tract. Over time cells from the body migrate into the scaffold and new tissue is generated as the body gradually absorbs the plug material, leaving no permanent material in the body.

Advantages of Fistula Plug

No cutting involved and no operation wound. Therefore it is associated with less pain and faster recovery.
No damage to the sphincter muscle.

Potential Drawbacks

Failures can occur due to the dislodgement of the plug from the fistula tract.
The plug can get infected
Failure of treatment can occur in 25-30% of cases
6. PILTEC: a modification of the LIFT procedure
Dr. Samrat Jankar an internationally recognized fistula surgeon pioneered the LASER procedure named PILTEC having the highest cure with zero incontinence rate. He had demonstrated at many surgical conferences and workshops. He had trained many surgeons in fistula treatment using the PILTEC procedure.

Why does the Fistula recur again and again?
Anal fistula treatment remains a challenge for surgeons owing to its persistence or recurrence. Recurrent anal fistulas after surgery are more difficult to treat as there is even more risk of re-recurrence. Now, the challenge is that, even with the availability of so many techniques, there is a high risk of recurrence of the fistula after surgical intervention depending upon the location of the fistula, the kind of procedure performed, the expertise of the surgeon, extent of disturbing anatomy of the perianal region, unexpected findings, the effect of excess fibrosis and scarring after surgery and lack of proper postoperative care in the early and late periods following the surgery. This means that fistulas can keep on coming back even after surgery.

According to Dr. Samrat Jankar, a successful fistula surgery requires proper diagnosis, a perfectly performed and reported MRI, along with the surgeon’s expertise and the method of surgery. Dr. Samrat Jankar, the best fistula surgeon in Pune pioneer of the PILTEC procedure. In almost all cases Dr. Samrat Jankar performs a single-setting surgery with a success rate of more than 98% including fistula with perianal abscess. It is not only about surgery at kaizen gastro care dr Samrat Jankar and their team provide very good postoperative care which is one of the most important components in the complete cure of fistula.

What symptoms does anal fistula surgery address?
The signs and symptoms of an anal fistula include:

Frequent anal abscesses
Pain and swelling around the anus
Bloody or foul-smelling drainage (pus) from an opening around the anus. The pain may decrease after the fistula drains.
Irritation of the skin around the anus from drainage
Pain with bowel movements
Fever, chills, and a general feeling of fatigue
Anal fistula surgery aims to correct an anal fistula and treat all of its associated symptoms. If you have any of the above symptoms or you’re concerned about having an anal infection, abscess or fistula, speak with Kaizen fistula specialist Dr. Samrat Jankar, the best fistula doctor in Pune.

How is an anal fistula diagnosed at Kaizen Gastro Care:
Dr. Samrat Jankar at KAIZEN Gastro Care usually diagnoses an anal fistula by examining the area around the anus. He will look for an opening (the fistula tract) on the skin, then try to determine how deep the tract is, and the direction in which it is going. In many cases, there will be drainage from the external opening. Some fistulas may not be visible on the skin’s surface. Most of the time need further tests to better understand fistula relations with sphincter. An anoscopy is a procedure in which a special instrument is used to see inside your anus and rectum. Also in most cases, he advises an MRI fistulogram of the anal area to get a better view of the fistula tract. Some atypical cases need a colonoscopy to rule out IBD which will be the cause of the recurrence of fistula.

What causes an anal fistula?
The leading causes of an anal fistula are clogged anal glands and anal abscesses. Other, much less common, conditions that can cause an anal fistula to include:

Crohn’s disease (an inflammatory disease of the intestine)
Radiation (treatment for cancer)
Sexually transmitted diseases

Liposuction in Delhi for Fat Removal by Dr Ashish Khare
Body contouring with liposuction surgery is a popular procedure for removing fat from areas such as the waist, abdomen, hips and thighs. Liposuction is especially effective for people with localized pockets of fat that diet and exercise cannot seem to remove. For those looking for Liposuction near me, there are many experienced surgeons in Delhi who specialize in body contouring with liposuction.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that sucks fat from the body by using a suction device. Local, or general anesthesia can be used depending on the area and size of the area being operated on. The procedure involves making small incisions in the targeted area and sucking out the fat cells to contour the body. It usually takes 1-2 hours depending on the extent of the operation.

When performed by a qualified surgeon, liposuction will remove fat cells permanently. Patients should be aware that some amount of fat may come back if they are not aware of their diet and exercise regime. After surgery it is important to keep the affected area clean and dry to allow the area to heal properly.

Overall liposuction is a safe and effective way to improve body shape and contour.

To avail the benefits of liposuction in Delhi, book a consultation with Dr. Ashish Khare today!
