As one of the world's leading urogynecologists, Dr. Riachi has traveled the globe to teach other physicians the procedures he performs. His mission, as he sees it, is to try to help every woman who needs diagnosis and treatment for their female incontinence and prolapse problems.
The specialty of urogynecology involves the urinary aspects of gynecology, and is a specialty that has grown as the staggering number of women with urinary problems have been estimated, documented and brought to light.
Dr. Riachi's approach to female urinary incontinence incorporates different approaches to stress incontinence, which is the leakage or urine upon any pressure on the bladder, urge incontinence, which is the constant and uncontrollable urge to urinate (with leakage), and mixed incontinence.
For patients with female vaginal prolapse, Dr. Riachi has surgical options that include the use of plastic mesh to "hold up" a woman's anatomy, exercise programs and other options.
Dr. Riachi uses various tools at his disposal to help his patients, from conservative methods such as pelvic floor exercises to radical methods like minimally-invasive surgery. His dedicated and compassionate staff works with women of all ages to help them regain what they thought they could never have--a normal life, free of constant discomfort, worry and (in many cases) shame.
The psychological effects of these problems are devastating to many women. According to Dr. Riachi, while he is a urogynecologist by training, an additional benefit of his work is that it helps solve emotional and psychological issues many women have from dealing with these problems on a daily basis.
