Dr. Alinsod introduces himself and discusses vaginal reconstruction.
Hi, I am Red Alinsod. I am a urogynecologist in Laguna Beach, California. I am dealing mostly with women’s pelvic health issues such as incontinence and pelvic prolapse and the aesthetic vaginal surgeries that are available to the patients.
Vaginal reconstruction is a specialized field of gynecology where mostly urogynecologists and some general GYN surgeons are involved in reconstructing a pelvis, a woman’s pelvis that may have been damaged from childbirth, obesity, chronic cough, and results in a prolapse or a falling down of pelvic organs such as the bladder, the rectum, even the uterus can fall down.
So we rebuild the whole entire pelvic structure so that it’s in the condition it was before, hopefully before she had babies.
