Get to Know Me
What are some of the specific conditions you treat?
As a Urogynecologist, I specifically focus on pelvic floor disorders in women such as pelvic organ prolapse ("dropped bladder"), urinary incontinence ("leakage of urine"), overactive bladder, frequent urination, urgency, interstitial cystitis (bladder pain) among other conditions.
What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?
There is a broad range of treatment options for pelvic floor conditions including non-surgical approaches, such as pessaries and physical therapy, as well as minimally invasive surgical procedure, such as robotic / laparoscopic and vaginal reconstruction. Some of the advanced in-office procedures that we offer include botox bladder injections, urethral bulking injections and peripheral tibial nerve stimulation.
