“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 email@example.com.

This show will provide you with website resources for bladder, bowel, and pelvic pain conditions. Patients frequently ask for reputable resources so I thought it would be helpful to create a show with a comprehensive list. This is not all-inclusive but would be a good starting point if you are looking for resources and/or support.
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.
