"We removed a non-functional womb (uterus), fallopian tubes, cervix, and partial vagina from his body. His recovery is good," said Dr. Gite.

"The body scan showed that the patient's testes were still in the abdomen. There is a surgical solution for this. But when we started the operation, we found a uterus-like structure inside," added Gite.

According to the doctor, the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan of the man showed other female reproductive organs such as fallopian tubes, cervix, and vagina.

Even though the surgery was a success, the person will not have children as he suffers from azoospermia, a condition where the semen contains no sperm.
