“Mesh reinforcement is just one ‘tool’ in today’s surgical toolbox, which may be recommended in select cases as an option intended to achieve a more durable surgery, or even to avoid the need for hysterectomy in some cases.”said Dr. Roger Goldberg, Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and Urogynecologist at Northshore University Health System in Evanston, IL. “What’s critical is whether or not the surgeon performing the procedure has the proper training. Choosing the right prolapse surgery, and deciding on whether mesh or a ‘traditional’ repair is right for you, is no different than boarding an airplane: you need to align yourself with a pilot who is experienced and confident in a variety of techniques” Dr. Goldberg added.
Dr. Roger Goldberg, Sherrie Palm, and Missy Lavender will discuss this further on Blog Talk Radio’s, “Real Women on Health” hosted by Kelley Connors, MPH, Wednesday, August 24th, from 11:30 pm CST – 12:00 pm CST. To share your story, email Molly Kirk Parlier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pelvic organ prolapse is an international women’s health concern. The impact of POP varies from country to country and region to region; in some areas the need is for education, in some it is for medical intervention. Throughout the world there is a need to establish awareness.

Sherrie is the Founder/President of Assoc. for Pelvic Organ Prolapse. Pelvic organ prolapse is an extremely common female health issue that ALL WOMEN need to know about.

Sherrie's book: "Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic" was an Award-Winning Finalist in the Women's Health category of the 2010 International Book Awards as well as in the Women's Issues category; and in the 2009 National Best Book Los Angelos.
Sherrie is going to share with us what the symptoms of POP are, as well as what we can do to help ourselves either avoid being diagnosed with POP, or is you have been diagnosed with POP, what the different treatment options are; as well as her own personal experience with POP.

Many women involved in intimate relationships may appear to be disinterested in sex. Her male partner may not understand why she keeps avoiding sexual contact. Low sexual desire can result from a wide variety of different physical and/or psychological issues. On this call Dr. Erica Goodstone, Author of Love Me, Touch Me, Heal Me, interviews Sherrie Palm, author of a book which explains a condition that many women have and may not understand: Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
Pelvic floor health is certainly not something women talk about during happy hour or over lunch. Occasional giggly references to ‘don’t make me laugh (I’ll pee!)’ or kegel exercises is about all that takes place when talking about this important aspect of a woman’s health.
However, the fact that this conversation can be awkward shouldn’t diminish its importance. Do you realize that in addition to controlling our urine, helping us to have babies, our pelvic floor also holds up our guts? There is much to learn about having a healthy pelvic floor – what it is and how to care for it. Join us to hear more.
