Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) July 25, 2014
After many years of treating women with pelvic issues like bulging organs, urinary incontinence, fallen uterus and bladder, or pelvic floor disorders, Dr. Greg Owens has partnered with Kathleen Novicki, an expert in the area of pelvic rehabilitation. The two have worked together for several years, and Kathleen recently completed and passed the inaugural administration of Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification by the Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. This certification distinguishes Kathleen as an expert in the field of pelvic rehabilitation.
“We have worked together for several years,” said Dr. Greg Owens, “And the results that Kathleen achieves are remarkable. Many women, after a thorough and complete exam and initial diagnosis, are candidates for working with Kathleen and avoiding surgery all together.”
Urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse affects about 25% of women and can occur at any age, although most experience it after childbirth, aging, gaining weight or due to a lifestyle of lifting heavy objects or strenuous exercise.
Dr. Greg Owens has perfected the art of minimal incision robotic surgery, and when needed, the results are ground-breaking with quicker recovery, less in-hospital time, and the freedom to enjoy life without the burden of adult diapers or the humiliation of wet pants or clothing.
Leaking bladders are common due to many different circumstances and often occur when a woman coughs, sneezes, laughs or lifts. Unfortunately, about 60% of women affected with leaky bladders never seek medical help either due to embarrassment or the feeling that nothing can be done to correct it. However, Dr. Owens has made it his life’s work to correct these conditions.
While urinary incontinence is the most common, other symptoms like painful intercourse, inability to urinate or have regular bowel movements, or a heavy feeling in the pelvic area, can all be signs of pelvic prolapse.
