This is often a consequence of childbirth and menopause and millions of women worldwide continue to put up with it as a 'woman's lot'.
There is no need to do this since highly effective options exist for alleviating the stress, embarrassment and hygiene issues that these problems cause. These treatments include physiotherapy, tablets, devices and operations.
New surgical techniques using minimally invasive slings have revolutionised the treatment with cure rates around 90%. Sometimes (for patients with urinary incontinence), detailed tests called urodynamics are organised which help to diagnose the exact problem.
This aids in planning the most effective treatment with the least side-effects. Anil has his own state of the art urodynamics facility with a highly trained and empathic nurse in attendance. Referral to expert pelvic floor physiotherapists is also worthwhile and in some cases can alleviate the need for surgery.
Dr Sharma strikes the perfect balance between approachability and professionalism. In this way he engenders trust and confidence in his assessment and surgical intervention.
I cannot thank Dr Sharma and Anne enough for their kind, compassionate and life-saving care. Anne went out of her way to find me an appointment when I was in a bind. Dr Sharma was amazing from the get-go, listened to my concerns, thoroughly explained my situation and immediately provided me with top notch medical care. I will forever be grateful.
Dr Sharma is an outstanding practitioner. He is clearly well-versed in the area of Gynaecology and can discuss with you the pros and cons around even the newest advances in the field to help you make an informed choice. He also takes the time to ensure that you fully understand what lies ahead. Rest assured, you are in safe hands.
Anil is a very kind-hearted person, who is attentive, listens, and genuinely cares about you as a patient. He works hard to acknowledge and understand your perspective around other aspects of your life, in order to determine an appropriate plan forward for medical care and recovery. I'm really grateful to have had Anil on my team. Thanks so much!
