June 2012 marks a milestone for International Urogynecology Associates as Dr. Robert D. Moore and Dr. John R. Miklos perform their 24th Neovagina Surgery in 24 months
Date:6/19/2012

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 19, 2012

Dr. Robert Moore and Dr. John Miklos, are internationally renowned laparoscopic pelvic reconstructive surgeons that specialize in the laparoscopic creation of a neovagina in women born without a vaginal canal. Surgical treatment options to create a vaginal canal (Neovagina) are available, however finding the right surgeon that has treated multiple women with this condition can be difficult. Because this condition is so rare, gynecologists could go an entire career and never diagnose or treat a patient with MRKH.

In 2001, Dr. Miklos went to Moscow, Russia to learn a newer surgical technique in creating a Neovagina, called a Davydov procedure. This procedure utilizes the patients’ own peritoneum as the new vaginal canal and usually within 6 months from surgery, the peritoneum can transform into the patients own vaginal epithelium (meaning the new vaginal skin appears as traditional vaginal skin of someone that was born without this defect). Dr Moore and he have since modified the technique and have made the surgery less invasive for women as well as the recovery process with the development of new post-op packing that helps eliminate the painful process of vaginal molds and other devices.

Dr. Moore and Miklos have become experts in the laparoscopic creation of a Neovagina. They took the skills they acquired from the original Davydov procedure and combined it with their laparoscopic knowledge to developed an even more minimally invasive technique. The procedure takes between 1-2 hours and usually within 4-6 weeks, patients can begin to engage in sexual intercourse.    

In the past 24 months, Dr. Moore and Dr. Miklos have surgically treated 24 patients with MRKH using their laparoscopic technique. They have become one of the busiest centers in the Country in the creation of neovaginas.

Patients have traveled from all over the United States including Washington State and Maine and parts of Europe to be treated by Moore and Miklos. This summer, Dr. Moore and Miklos will be surgically correcting 4 more patients (ages ranging from 16 – 64 years old) and are currently interviewing 6 more patients that are considering surgery as well.
