PUNE: Women can suffer from similar diseases like Piles, Fissures, Fistula, Haemorrhoids, Rectal bleeding, Gall bladder stone, pancreatic stones, Hernia and many more. Due to nature of these diseases, majority of the women try to avoid and neglect themselves because of  reservations in their mind to get examined by a male surgeon. 

To address this unspoken problem, Sahyadri Hospitals come up with a unique initiative called EVA clinic. Eva Clinic - A unique all Women’s Surgery Clinic. For Women - Specialized, dedicated unit offering comprehensive consultation & Surgical Services for women.

The Clinic was inaugurated at a function held at Sahyadri Super Speciality Hospital Nagar Road at the hands of Chief Guest Honourable Mayor Mukta Tilak in the presence of Guest of Honour Commissioner of Police Pune Rashmi Shukla.
