New Treatments For Female Incontinence: Breaking the Taboo

"The condition can be devastating socially," Dr. Riachi said. "Many women are afraid to face it and live with it for years. We want to make them aware this is not something they have to live with. There are many treatment techniques available, including minimally invasive surgery." Dr. Riachi was one of the first on the East Coast to perform the technique… He has traveled to the Middle East to teach in hospitals in the region, where there's even more of a taboo against talking about women’s personal problems than in the US, and has taught the technique to more than 100 doctors in the US so that the revolutionary technique can be brought to more women.
