There is a certain type of vulvar pain which until now was basically untreatable without surgery. The good news, we always told patients, was that with the right surgery there is a 98% chance that you will be pain free. The bad news, unfortunately, was that the surgery is pretty miserable. You’re out of work for many weeks and the recovery is really uncomfortable. We kept hoping we’d find another solution for our patients. So we have been keeping our ears out for new treatments. And the GOOD NEWS is that there is a new protocol out there specifically for neuroproliferative vulvodynia, using a low level laser which is having great results! Rather than surgery, you have twice weekly totally painless treatments with a laser. The laser treatments are 10-15 minutes and you need somewhere from 8-16 treatments.
This is a game changer, and we are excited to be offering it to appropriate patients.
Call us and we’ll talk to you about it.
