Memorial Med Spa in Carthage recently hosted a stress urinary incontinence procedure training on July 27 and 28. The two-day training focused on a new advanced procedure to address stress urinary incontinence, a prevalent and distressing bladder issue affecting women. This was a groundbreaking moment as this training was amongst the first to debut in a clinical setting within the United States.
Dr. Ariel Luksenburg, the inventor of the stress urinary incontinence procedure from Uruguay, also trained Dr. Jessica Fang from Taiwan, Dr. Jason Bailey from Georgia, Dr. Jan Grewal from California, as well as Memorial Med Spa physician Dr. Gina Bell, OB/GYN. The collaboration between these physicians aimed to revolutionize the treatment for stress urinary incontinence, enabling women to access relief through a minimally invasive office-based procedure. Offering an office-based procedure eliminates the need for general anesthesia and hospitalization.
Dr. Ariel Luksenburg, a gynecologist from Uruguay, introduced his system for the treatment of severe stress incontinence to the U.S. in 2021 at Marco Pelosi’s International Society for Cosmetogynecology Pre-Congress workshop in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. His expertise and insights proved invaluable during the training event at Memorial Med Spa, as he shared innovative techniques and best practices from his extensive experience with this procedure. The participating physicians brought diverse perspectives, which fostered a dynamic learning environment.
Stress urinary incontinence is a condition that significantly impacts the quality of life for millions of women worldwide. Stress urinary incontinence is a leakage of urine during moments of physical activity that increases abdominal pressure, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. However, with the successful training session conducted at Memorial Med Spa, new hope has emerged for affected patients seeking an efficient and less invasive solution to their bladder issues.
Dr. Gina Bell, OB/GYN at Memorial Med Spa, specializes in Gynecologic care, such as hormone replacement therapy, intimacy wellness, and aesthetic procedures. She has a passion for serving her patients at every stage of life and integrates an individual holistic approach to healthcare delivery. Dr. Bell is renowned in her area of practice and has been awarded numerous teaching awards, fellowships, and humanitarian awards in basic sciences and women’s health.
