Chennai hospi­tal of­fers non-sur­gi­cal treat­ment

A proven so­lu­tion for women’s is­sues

As per avail­able sta­tis­tics, in women of the re­pro­duc­tive age group, nearly 50% were found to have uri­nary in­con­ti­nence and nearly 30% were suf­fer­ing from it post de­liv­ery. Of this, only around 15% of the women seek treat­ment or dis­cuss it with a health­care pro­fes­sional, doc­tors said.

Speak­ing at the in­au­gu­ral of a new cos­metic gy­nae­col­ogy unit at the In­digo Women’s Cen­tre, here, doc­tors sug­gested it was cru­cial to ad­dress the prob­lem early.

“Femilift, a new vagi­nal re­ju­ve­na­tion laser treat­ment, is non-sur­gi­cal and is a clin­i­cally-proven so­lu­tion for com­mon fem­i­nine is­sues such as stress uri­nary in­con­ti­nence and re­cur­rent in­fec­tions. Aware­ness about th­ese non-sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures, which def­i­nitely have fewer side-ef­fects, have to in­crease,” said Su­rak­shith Bat­tina, en­do­scopic sur­geon with the cen­tre.

Dr. Bat­tina went on to say that the non-sur­gi­cal treat­ment would only take about 15 min­utes per sit­ting. “Women sel­dom dis­cuss con­cerns such as in­con­ti­nence and are of­ten em­bar­rassed to speak about it. We want them to have more aware­ness and seek help from ex­perts in the field in­stead of just choos­ing to live with the con­di­tion,” he added.

Ac­tor Sneha in­au­gu­rated the fa­cil­ity.
