While people often reminisce about their youthful romps, the bedroom door can slam shut...
Recently I spent a day with Dr. Vincent Lucente and Dr. Cristina Saiz who specialize in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Lucente and his fellow, Dr. Saiz are dedicated to providing excellent surgical care to their patients. They are willing to share their techniques with others and I greatly benefited from being in the operating room with them for the day. They are able to perform life changing procedures for women using minimally invasive methods. Dr. Lucente is very passionate about healthcare issues for women and he has agreed to join the board for Pass the Pearls and help with our mission to educate women about minimally invasive surgery options. Thank you Dr.s Lucente and Saiz for sharing! Lori Warren

If you suffer from urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control) or pelvic organ prolapse, you are not alone. This problem occurs in women of all ages. Sadly, many women try to hide the problem and limit their lives because they are not aware that urinary incontinence and prolapse can be treated very effectively. Most often, incontinence is not an isolated problem but an interconnected one. Loss of bladder or bowel control or prolapse ("dropping") of the uterus or other pelvic organs tend to occur in clusters and affect each other. Many women experience pelvic pressure, fullness or a bulging sensation within the vagina due to pelvic organ prolapse. In fact, the term "dropped" is misleading, as the true problem is a defect in vaginal support. During the past decade, women have benefited from a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology called urogynecology. The subspecialty was recently renamed female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery to more accurately describe the scope of diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic support disorders. The subspecialist evaluates all the structures and systems of the female pelvis, including organs, nerves, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels. The result is a much higher quality of care for you.
