Do you suffer from any of the following?
Dr. Karram has extensive experience in evaluating and managing all types of bladder control issues, whether they be related to what is termed stress incontinence, urge incontinence/overactive bladder, or a combination of both. He also has extensive experience treating patients who have previously undergone surgeries that have NOT been successful in the management of their incontinence.
Pelvic organ prolapse is a very common problem that occurs in a high percentage of women. Dr. Karram continues to utilize very safe and efficacious procedures for this. Most notably, the majority of the prolapse repairs that Dr. Karram does are done transvaginally without the use of any mesh. He has published extensively on this with excellent long term outcomes with minimal complications. Also, Dr. Karram has developed surgeries that can correct uterine prolapse without removal of the uterus as well as not utilizing any mesh.
If you are in need of a hysterectomy, it is important to understand that the least invasive, safest and most efficient way to have your uterus removed is transvaginally. Many physicians promote robotic and laparoscopic approaches over vaginal approaches. In reality, any hysterectomy that can be done vaginally should be done vaginally. This has been very clearly stated by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Karram has extensive experience in performing vaginal hysterectomy in most situations that would otherwise require an incision or a laparoscopic or robotic approach.
If you have had a surgical complication related to mesh, Dr. Karram has had extensive experience managing mesh complications and again can usually do this through a transvaginal approach, maintaining vaginal function.
