According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly a quarter of U.S. women are affected by pelvic floor disorders (PFDs), a cluster of health problems that causes physical discomfort and limits activity. PFDs arise when you are unable to control the muscles and ligaments that form a sling across the opening of a women's pelvis.
In an effort to raise awareness of the importance of PFDs, Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus presents a Women's Pelvic Health Lunch and Learn on Wednesday, July 22, from 12 to 1:30 p.m. Led by Martin P. Michalewski, M.D., FACOG, a urogynecologist at Monmouth Medical Center, this informative session will discuss PFDs and treatment options that might just change your life.
This free program is open to the public and will be held at the Center for Healthy Aging at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus located at 500 River Avenue, Suite 200 in Lakewood. Registration is required by calling the Barnabas Health LINK at 1-888-724-7123. Free.
