Treat­ing symp­toms safely and ef­fec­tively

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Advertising Feature -

DR NATALIE Kiesey-Cald­ing at Cairns Ob­stet­rics and Gy­nae­col­ogy of­fers Mon­aL­isa Touch laser treat­ment for women’s health. The safe and pain-free ef­fec­tive treat­ment us­ing laser tech­nol­ogy helps fight the symp­toms of vagi­nal at­ro­phy. This is some­thing which can oc­cur at any time in a woman’s life; dur­ing menopause, when breast­feed­ing af­ter a baby, in con­junc­tion with long-term oral con­tra­cep­tive pill use or when not ovu­lat­ing reg­u­larly. Mon­aL­isa Touch is ideal for woman for whom lo­cal treat­ment with es­tro­gen is not suit­able. Cairns Ob­stet­rics and Gy­nae­col­ogy is the only prac­tice where an ex­pe­ri­enced spe­cial­ist gy­nae­col­o­gist is per­form­ing this treat­ment in­te­grated into a to­tal gy­nae­co­log­i­cal care plan for the symp­toms of vul­val/vagi­nal at­ro­phy. The treat­ment is a walk-in and walk-out pro­ce­dure. It is pain free, and does not re­quire an anaes­thetic or time off work. It is highly ef­fec­tive, safe and hor­mone­free. Cairns Ob­stet­rics and Gy­nae­col­ogy has an all-fe­male team and care de­liv­ery is fo­cused on the woman at the cen­tre of the ex­pe­ri­ence. “We fo­cus on qual­ity ser­vice rather than high num­bers of pa­tients,” Dr Natalie says. Treat­ments are per­formed by Dr Natalie her­self, not a prac­tice nurse or tech­ni­cian. Dr Natalie started her ca­reer in gen­eral surgery, with time spent in plas­tic surgery and neu­ro­surgery. How­ever, as her main in­ter­est was in women’s health she grav­i­tated nat­u­rally to­wards ob­stet­rics and gy­nae­col­ogy. “Vul­val and vagi­nal at­rophic symp­toms are a real man­age­ment prob­lem, and as there is a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of pa­tients who are un­suit­able for lo­cal es­tro­gens, I was keen to find an al­ter­na­tive treat­ment – which we can now of­fer with the Mon­aL­isa Touch,” Dr Natalie says. “Symp­toms of vagi­nal at­ro­phy can com­pletely ruin a woman’s re­la­tion­ship/life. “By treat­ing th­ese symp­toms safely and ef­fec­tively we are making a huge dif­fer­ence to some­one.” “Un­like hor­monal-based treat­ments, this is safe to use in all women, even those who have sur­vived breast can­cer or have med­i­cal con­di­tions that means that es­tro­gen use is not an op­tion. “Un­til now, th­ese women had ab­so­lutely no other op­tion – and as a re­sult there was a lot of suf­fer­ing. The Mon­aL­isa Touch has the po­ten­tial to rev­o­lu­tionise th­ese women’s lives.”
