Has it been a smooth road?
The rapid advance of medical science and the high cost of doing business in California is an ever growing challenge faced by physicians specially along the coastal communities. We strive everyday to make each individual feel like family in our practice.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with South Coast Urogynecology – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are surgical sub-specialists for women’s health issues such as urinary leakage, fallen bladder/rectum/vagina/uterus, abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, failed prior surgeries, and unappealing vaginal appearance or function. We are known as the originators of radiofrequency use gynecology and the inventors of ThermiVa treatments and Dermoelectroporation for feminine restoration.

We specialize in gynecology, urogynecology, pelvic surgery, and aesthetic vaginal surgery or vaginal rejuvenation. We offer an extensive set of both surgical and non-surgical solutions for female genital restoration.

Our surgical sub-specialty is unique in that it enables one physician to integrate the skills of a gynecologist, urologist, and aesthetic surgeon. Our practice is one of the very few internet based practices that offers secure communications with patients along with rapid response. We use the iPhone to provide instantaneous and timely responses. “Phone tag” is eliminated. We are a one stop Women’s Health and Regenerative Center.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
We love the forward thinking of the Orange County medical community and the acceptance of innovative and disruptive technologies that emerge from this region that ultimately benefit women worldwide. Many original concepts are copied and used throughout various medical specialties. The least attractive characteristic of working in Southern California is the cost of doing business and the heavy regulatory atmosphere.
