About

Bio

My primary care philosophy is to provide women with the highest quality pelvic care by the least invasive means possible. With a wide range of treatment options, pelvic floor disorders may be treated with office procedures and pelvic muscle rehabilitation or surgically. Having done more than 10,000 surgeries for vaginal support issues and bladder and bowel control, you can be sure that experience matters and that you will be in good hands I also offer non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with CO2 laser for vaginal dryness (Core2Intima and MonaLisa Touch), radiofrequency heat treatments for vaginal tightening and sensitivity and vulvar appearance enhancement (ThermiVa), as well as platelet rich plasma injections into the clitoris and G-spot to enhance sexual response (O-shot).

Specialties
