"I believe strongly in patient education. I take a lot of time explaining to my patients and their loved ones what the pathophysiology of their defect is. A lot of women present to me quite scared of not only what is happening to their body, but also of consequences and treatment. I try to alleviate that fear through education. Many women think that surgery will be debilitating and painful. While surgery is an option for many women, it can be done in a minimally invasive way and oftentimes it is not a necessity. Often, I can offer more conservative treatment options to relieve symptoms."
