Florida Hospital is rated among the top facilities in the nation for gynecologic care, and for good reason. At Florida Hospital Orlando’s Gynecology program, we focus on the treatment of a variety of advanced gynecologic disorders. We use the latest minimally invasive, robotic and single-incision laparoscopy techniques, which minimize our patients’ discomfort, downtime and scarring.
One of the conditions our multidisciplinary team specializes in is pelvic and vulvar pain. Pelvic pain is a catchall term for the pain a woman feels below her belly buttom. It’s a fairly common occurrence: roughly 15 percent of women of childbearing age report having pelvic pain that lasts at least six months. This pain can be steady or come and go; severe pain can interfere with the woman’s quality of life. There are several potential causes of pelvic pain, including adhesions, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, pelvic prolapse, uterine fibroids, urinary and fecal incontinence, and vulvodynia.
No matter the specific condition, women experiencing pelvic pain can rest assured that we have expert care and the latest technology at Florida Hospital Orlando. Dr. Georgine Lamvu is the medical director of the Gynecologic Unit of Florida Hospital. Dr. Lamvu is and internationally recognized expert in her field. In 2012, she was selected to serve as president of the International Pelvic Pain Society; she’s also been elected vice president of the American Associations of Gynecologic Laparoscopists’ Pelvic Pain Special Interest Group, and asked to serve on a federal government panel that’s been tasked with formulating new evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of chronic pelvic pain. She not only treats patients, but also teaches fellow physicians from around the country about new, cutting-edge ways to treat pelvic pain.
Along with her colleagues, Dr. Lamvu is committed to providing hope and healing to women suffering from pelvic pain. If you would like to make an appointment, please give us a call today at (855) 303-DOCS.
