Memorial Med Spa among first to complete stress urinary incontinence procedure training in U.S.
CARTHAGE, Ill. — Memorial Med Spa in Carthage was the host of a stress urinary incontinence procedure training on July 27-28.
The two-day training focused on an advanced procedure to address stress urinary incontinence, a prevalent and distressing bladder issue affecting women. This training was among 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. 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.
Luksenburg 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, Fla. He shared innovative techniques and best practices at Memorial Med Spa from his extensive experience with this procedure.
Stress urinary incontinence is a leakage of urine during moments of physical activity that increases abdominal pressure, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercising.
Bell specializes in gynecologic care, such as hormone replacement therapy, intimacy wellness and aesthetic procedures. She has been awarded numerous teaching awards, fellowships and humanitarian awards in basic sciences and women’s health.
Memorial Med Spa is at 630 Locust. To schedule an appointment for stress urinary incontinence or more services offered at Memorial Med Spa, visit mhtlc.org/services/memorial-med-spa/ or call 217-357-6560.
