Dr. John Hettiarachchi appeared on Charlotte Today this morning to discuss how aging affects the pelvis. While so much attention is given to looking and trying to feel younger, the affects of aging on pelvic function are frequently either ignored or dismissed as a part of life.
“It’s funny that so many doctors and patients don’t talk about something that is so essential to their health,” said Dr. Hettiarachchi referring to how aging affects pelvic function.”
As women age, they can experience issues with bladder control, loss of vaginal sensation, vaginal atrophy, incontinence and more. In his Charlotte Today appearance, Dr. Hettiarachchi discusses these pelvic problems and new treatments to solve them. “We now have treatments [for pelvic problems] that overcome both surgical and medical needs.” said Dr. Hettiarachchi. He then discusses how treatments such as Emsella® and MonaLisa Touch® help patients overcome the affects of aging on their pelvic health without need for medication or surgery.
