Partners in Pelvic HealthRating 5 "Dr. Gandhi and his staff are very caring and knowledgeable in their area. It is comforting to know that Dr. Gandhi is only a phone call away if there is an emergency at home. Our 1+ hour trip to Park City is worth it. Thank you."
Sling / Vaginal MeshPelvic floor prolapse patients may benefit from the placement of a vaginal mesh or a sling. These help hold up the organs to reduce incontinence concerns. Dr. Gandhi can place, revise, and remove these as necessary. He has found that many patients experience better bladder functionality with these in place.
InterStim NeuromodulationInterStim neuromodulation requires surgery to implant into the vagina. This neuromodulator is a small device that sends electrical stimulation to the nerves to tighten and reduce problems associated with an overactive bladder. This is done as a permanent solution, and is similar to the way a pacemaker is used to stimulate the function of the heart. Patients interested in InterStim neuromodulation can have a temporary surgery done for placement to utilize short-term. This allows a patient to determine the improvements that it provides before having the permanent surgery performed.
Vaginal Tightening / VaginoplastyWhen women have a loose vagina, they may experience both medical and sexual problems. A tighter vagina will improve sexual function, allowing both woman and man to experience better sexual satisfaction. Tighter vaginal muscles can also reduce functional conditions such as urinary incontinence. Patients with pelvic organ prolapse can also benefit from a vaginoplasty. Women considering this surgical procedure are encouraged to visit for a thorough examination and consultation with Dr. Gandhi to determine their candidacy and the need for this procedure.
