Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
Leaky bladders are an issue that nearly 25% of women between the ages of 18 and 80 experience. Dr. Greg Owens, Greater Cincinnati urogynocologist specializes in performing surgery, as well as other treatments, which prevent leaking bladders from affecting the lives of so many women.
A large percentage of Dr. Owens surgeries are performed robotically. This relatively new and cutting-edge technique provides a less invasive procedure, a quicker recovery, and a shorter time in the hospital. All of these benefits make it a plausible choice for busy women. Dr. Owens was filmed in the operating room at Mercy Hospital, Fairfield, OH, (a Cincinnati suburb), while he performed a hysterectomy. The program details the equipment, the pre-operative measures, and the surgery itself. The entire program was broadcast on Make Your Life Healthy, which airs on Waycross Community Media and Time Warner Cable in Southwest Ohio and is in line for national broadcast on the Telos Digital TV Network.
“When you look at the way (abdominal) surgeries have evolved, from a six-to-eight inch incision to four or five smaller incisions with laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery is the next, most efficient surgery producing the fastest healing and recovery. It’s an excellent choice for most of our patients,” said Dr. Greg Owens. The entire program can be viewed on You Tube.
Dr. Greg Owens, and his gynecologist wife, Dr. Julia Lee, are both passionate about women’s health issues. In fact, they have spent several vacations in distant countries operating on women with fistulas. This painful and often ostracizing condition occurs when there is a tear in their bladder or colon causing continuous leakage. Rarely seen in the United States, it is a common post-delivery condition in many third-world countries.
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.
