“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.
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. Vaginal childbirth and menopause are the two leading causes of POP. Unfortunately, most women first hear about pelvic organ prolapse AFTER they are diagnosed with POP.
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.

Carol Pirika shares her story of personal recovery from huge physical and mental challenges through physical therapy and attention to the mind –body-spirit connection. Carol suffered major surgery at the age of 24 and as a young woman had to face the possibility of being unable to have children. She overcame that with inspiration and learning from teachers in the physical therapy and fitness world, who helped with whiplash rehabilitation from a car accident and consequent adrenal fatigue. She faced a further challenge to recover use and strength of her pelvic floor after an episiotomy with her first child and became passionate and determined to assist women to help and heal their own bodies.
Her personal journey took her into a career as a top level personal trainer, motivated to gather specialist tools and knowledge to help women recover from post-natal and post hysterectomy challenges. Carol now has two beautiful children, a great level of fitness and a very positive attitude to overcoming physical challenges!
Carol, (who runs Bump Post Natal and Pregnancy classes) shares her training philosophies, practical ideas and inspiration to raise your spirits - from the bottom up! If you’ve ever experienced post-natal sadness or loss of physicality from ‘women’s problems’ you will be inspired with practical information from a personal journey shared.
On the next Pelvic Messenger, Diane Lee will discuss the forces that affect the pelvic floor and how to maintain pelvic floor health!
Diane Lee has been practicing physical therapy for almost 40 years, and she is the owner and senior Therapist at Diane Lee and Associates. Diane is a member of the Canadian Physiotherapist Association since 1976, and she is a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy (FCAMPT) since 1981. In addition, she created the Com-pressor, a unique, patented sacroiliac support belt as well as the newly released Baby Belly Belt, a specialized pelvic support with broader applications
Diane is internationally recognized as an expert in the field of thoracic, lumbar, sacroiliac, and pelvic disability and pain. The fourth and latest edition of her popular book, The Pelvic Girdle, serves as a crucial guide for many practitioners. The theory behind The Integrated Systems Model for Disability & Pain, an approach co-developed with L-J Lee, is an evidence based whole body/person approach to help optimize function and performance. This approach considers regional alignment, biomechanics and control during meaningful task analysis and determines something called the ‘primary driver’ when there are multiple sites failing to transfer load well during the task being analysed. The primary driver is the area of the body that when treated will have the biggest impact on function and performance of the rest of the body. Diane treats, teaches, writes, and creates. Her enormous contributions to the world of pelvic floor physical therapy are recognized and appreciated.
The POP Awareness Campaign is an initiative to create much needed awareness about the common female health issue pelvic organ prolapse prior to POP occurring rather than after diagnosis. With recognition of symptoms and causes comes the potential for earlier detection and less aggressive treatment. POP is a global women's health issue.
When not working on the POP Awareness Campaign, Medhelp.org, or the APOPS support network, Sherrie likes to spend time with her local Special Olympics group and will donate a portion of book proceeds to her Special Olympics kids.
Sherrie Palm hosts educational seminars on POP. Her goals are:
1.Create awareness about pelvic organ prolapse and help women become comfortable talking about it.
2.Make the acronym POP for pelvic organ prolapse become commonly known.
3.Encourage the medical community to start educating women about the importance of of pc (pelvic floor) muscle awareness and Kegel exercises at the first pelvic exam rather than waiting until POP becomes an active physical condition.
4.Establish additional charters of the global support network APOPS to connect women in all phases of pelvic organ prolapse treatment.
5.Create awareness of POP issues that occur in undeveloped areas of the world.
