Ask any women in their 50s and above, especially who have given child birth, what their number one health issue is. More than likely it will be related to their pelvic floor. Most common is the urinary incontinence. Most women suffer from this and often do not to choose to seek treatment. Other life limiting concerns like prolapse also is rarely discussed with their doctors. 

So many patients who have come to see me at my clinic for pelvic floor issues always tell me after the treatment that they wished they had sought treatment much earlier in their life. The reason ranges anything from embarrassment to giving up hope for any permanent treatment. Some of them believe that this condition is part of aging and learn to live with it, which of course, is not true.

The good news is that more and more women are talking about these issues with their doctor and even better news is that there are indeed many treatment options available now. So many patients who have gone through different types of treatment at our clinic have expressed so much relief and gratitude.

So, one should start first with what symptoms they have and seek help. Ask yourself If you have any of these symptoms:

  1. Accidental urine leakage when coughing, laughing, intercourse, sneezing, exercising etc.
  2. Sudden, intense urge to urinate
  3. Constant dribbling or frequent urination
  4. More than one of the above

Other indications of pelvic floor issues include pelvic pain and a bulge in the vagina (prolapse).

If you have any of these symptoms, yes, please do not hesitate to call us to discuss options. We use the latest technology to accurately diagnose and treat with the best option possible for you. You won’t believe how your life will change after the proper treatment.
