FDA Inquiry: Why You Need a Qualified Professional For Pelvic Health Treatments

FDA Inquiry: Why You Need a Qualified Professional For Pelvic Health Treatments

At the Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health, patients are our first priority. Patients should expect their medical providers to deliver the most competent, beneficial advice and treatments available. That is why the statement released by the FDA on July 30, 2018 regarding treatments for “vaginal rejuvenation” is very concerning to us.

The FDA’s statement details concerns about medical procedures designed for “vaginal rejuvenation.” When performed incorrectly or by unqualified administrators, these treatments can worsen problems rather than solving them. It advises patients to always consult a qualified, experienced physician when considering options for vaginal rejuvenation.

Where the FDA cited concerns about medical procedures designed for “vaginal rejuvenation,” Dr. John Hettiarachchi of the Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health doesn’t perform cosmetic or unnecessary treatments. Instead, he treats diseases and conditions. In conditions such as breast cancer, lichens sclerosis or urinary incontinence where medications or hormone therapy have failed to adequately provide vaginal or pelvic relief for patients, Dr. Hettiarachchi, as the only board certified female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery specialist in Charlotte, North Carolina, can provide the right tests and treatment options at a level of speciality unmatched in the area. As such, every patient gets a detailed review of her medical history, a detailed exam, and a fully customized treatment plan.  Unlike most plastic surgeons, dermatologists, med spas and general gynecologists performing pelvic and vaginal rejuvenation procedures, Dr. John Hettiarachchi specializes in, and regularly performs, vaginal reconstruction.

If you have any questions about the treatment options available at the Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health, please feel free to contact us for more information.
