the manipulator

9 Jul

This morning I spent over three hours “manipulating” a woman’s cervix.

Urogynecology is a wild field.  And patients LOVE their doctors.  Can you imagine suffering for years with urinary incontinence or vaginal prolapse…then you have a procedure and you’re cured??

Maybe I’m just feeling jaded, but it seems like there are so few procedures that can promise cure at such a high rate. Today was wonderful.

    What? CURED? I gotta research this.

      Amazing, right? Of course it’s not 100% cure in everyone, but close to it! And you have to weigh the risks of surgery, but patients selected for surgery do quite well.
