Effective Solutions for Female Pelvic Health

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.

I have been experiencing extreme fatigue. So tired at times that I could not lift my arms. Had hormone pellet therapy and within 5 days I was already feeling better. Was having trouble losing weight. i now realize that I was overeating trying to gain some energy. Now my appetite is more in line and I've lost several pounds within a few weeks. I am amazed something this simple has had such a positive impact on my life. Well worth the investment!!

Dr John Hettiarachchi is as friendly as he is professional. His quick wit is a great relief to anyone feeling somewhat anxious about the procedure (I had a vasectomy) and his knowledge of the system shows with his quick hands, as he process takes only around 15 minutes in all. I highly recommend the practice for any pelvic/urinary health related services.

Had a vasectomy this morning. I've never been so comfortable with my pants down around strangers. Joking aside, the people in this office are very personable and professional at the same time. I would give a higher rating if possible. I couldn't be more pleased with the completely painless procedure and hospitality of the employees.

Excellent experience from beginning to end. As someone having their first surgery obviously there was some anxiety. On a scale of 1-10, I maybe experienced a level 2 of pain for the first 24 hours, and a level 1 for 72 hours in my abdomen. Quick recovery time, no prescription pain meds were used, just Tylenol. The Dr. truly has the hands of an angel and the anesthesiogist also spoke to the entire process very well prior to and was very professional as well. Going under wasn't needed, for me was more to ease the level of anxiety I experienced. Gentleman, if you've been considering. Just do it! Do not listen to other horror stories. It's 2019 and science has advanced. ***This is NOT a paid advertisement/posting but rather a true life experience. *** Katherina you deserve a raise 😉

Lovely and smooth experience! The Dr was really friendly and informative. Sedation was very nice, used with an IV. A pinch from the IV going into your vein is all the pain you will go through with the sedation vasectomy. All I remember from the surgery is being cleaned and then waking up with the surgery completed. I was a little loopy when waking up and when I got home I passed out for a good 4 hours. The anesthitist was also amazing with helping me before and after the surgery plus giving me all the information I could need. He even gave me his personal number if I had any problems later that day. Highly recommended!

Dr. H was very professional and friendly with a great bedside manner. The procedure was essentially painless with only slight discomfort. The next day (today) has been normal daily activities with no pain or discomfort. I haven’t taken anything for pain yesterday or today. Overall I am extremely pleased with Dr. H and his staff. They explained everything well, answered all my questions, and made the entire procedure very easy. I could not have imagined being this active and pain free the day after my procedure. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others!

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.

Thorough Evaluations = Better Outcomes

What to Expect at Your Consultation


Our friendly staff provides you with a most warm welcome. We do all we can to ensure that you feel comfortable discussing issues that may not be easy to talk about.

Comprehensive Medical History

Rather than a "one-size-fits-all" approach, Dr. Hettiarachchi and our staff take a detailed medical exam to be as familiar as possible with your history, symptoms and concerns. We make sure to understand your medication list and prior surgeries. We also evaluate the following:

  • Female sexual function index (FSFI)
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Function Questionnaire (PISQ-12 )
  • Vaginal looseness scale

Physical Exam

Dr. Hettiarachchi then performs a physical exam to thoroughly understand your physical condition. The exam may include the following:

  • Evaluating vaginal tissue quality/ lubrication.
  • Vaginal support : collagen and pelvic muscle strength
  • POPQ assessment
  • Vaginal Health index


We then perform the labs recommended for hormonal evaluation.

Treatment Recommendations

Only after the above analyses are completed to provide treatment recommendations—all at your initial consultation. This thorough process enables us to provide you with a customized treatment plan most likely to help you with your unique condition. As Charlotte's most experienced female pelvic health specialist, Dr. Hettiarachchi provides the most thorough evaluations and comprehensive treatment plans.
