Vulvodynia, simply put, is chronic vulvar pain without an identifiable cause. The location, constancy and severity of the pain vary among sufferers.

Please join us in talking with Dr. Lamvu about this complex and often misunderstood condition.

Dr. Lamvu is Medical Unit Director of Gynecology and Director of the Fellowship in Advanced Gynecologic Disorders and Minimally-Invasive Surgery at Florida Hospital. She serves on the board for the International Pelvic Pain Society and is internationally recognized for promoting research of chronic pelvic pain disorders. Dr. Lamvu and the physicians at Advanced & Minimally Invasive Gynecology offer patients new and advanced treatment options for advanced gynecologic disorders. These include chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, abnormal bleeding and benign pelvic masses such as fibroids and ovarian cysts.  This advanced gynecology practice is located in the Health Village by Florida Hospital Orlando.
