Relief From
Vaginal Dryness,
Itching and Burning

Women are calling it “Life Changing”

Have you experienced urogynological changes? Changes like vaginal looseness, painful sex, vaginal burning or itching, multiple bladder infections or bladder leaks/urinary incontinence ? Or do you have difficulty with arousal and sensitivity? You are not alone! 

Millions of women suffer from problems with their vaginal health. Whether due to a decline in estrogen levels resulting from menopause, breast cancer or other, approximately 50% of women suffer from vaginal atrophy or other changes in their vaginal health, including severe dryness and painful intercourse. With limited treatment options, many women suffered in silence.

However, the days of "dealing with it" are over thanks to revolutionary treatments at the Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health, including the MonaLisa Touch®, Emsella, Geneveve and more. With virtually no discomfort, no down time, and symptoms improving after even the first treatment, you no longer have to live with vaginal atrophy or other problems with your vaginal health.

This is a new breakthrough in pelvic health. Just when we all thought there was no hope as women get older, now this is like a fountain of youth for the vaginal area. This new laser that Dr. Hettiarachchi uses treats many different symptoms including painful sex, mild incontinence, vaginal dryness, itching and burning. The procedure is painless and the results that we have seen are amazing. As women get older, they do not enjoy intimacy as much as they used to due to some of these symptoms and with this treatment, it makes this more enjoyable for women as well as their significant other and the men cannot keep up with the women now. Dr. Hettiarachchi is a caring physician that takes pride in his knowledge and strives to learn new and amazing treatments for his patients. The MonaLisa is a new amazing treatment that he uses to now treat women's symptoms.read more

Dr. Hettiarachchi is the only urologist in the area who is dual board certified in Urology and Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS). He was 1 of 1000 specialists in the United States to qualify for the FPMRS board certification. He was the first physician in the Greater Charlotte area to provide his patients with specialized care for sexual, urinary, vaginal and pelvic wellness that includes minimally and non-invasive therapies to manage vaginal pain, dryness, leaky bladder and improve sexual function. He is uniquely qualified to assess patients for this form of revitalizing vaginal therapy.

Physicians, physician spouses and health care professionals choose Dr. Hettiarachchi and Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health for their pelvic wellness and treatments. Women have traveled from out of state seeking Dr. Hettiarachchi's expert opinion for their symptoms of painful intercourse and leaky bladder. They are referring their mothers for recurrent UTI's and incontinence and their daughters for vaginal looseness and dryness. It is a true honor to be able to serve the growing community of empowered women.

Dr Hettiarachchi has surgical privileges with several local hospitals including Carolinas Health Care system hospitals, Lake Norman Regional Medical Center and Wilkes Regional Medical Center. Over the last 15 years, he has performed extensive and complicated surgeries on both men and women including bladder, kidney, prostate, penile and female pelvic prolapse procedures.

Even with Dr Hettiarachchi's unsurpassed experience in the field and his expertise with multiple treatment technologies, listening is still a major part of any treatment plan.

You can be assured that you will receive the best of care, your concerns will always be heard and you will always be treated with kindness by our long-standing expert team.

As the expert in his field and sole owner of his medical practice, Dr. Hettiarachchi has the ability to customize the therapy that is right for you, which won't be delayed by Insurance company's attempt to dictate medical care provided or limited by hospital resources.
