GENERAL INFORMATION

Educational Objectives

ABOUT THE CONGRESS:

The concept of teaching aesthetic gynecology had its birth in 2006 when the National Society of Cosmetic

Physicians was in its infancy. Yearly Congress meetings of forward thinking and like-­‐minded physicians have

spurred the growth and interest in this arena. The Congress on Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery (CAVS) builds on a

distinguished history of education specifically tailored for the growth and development of Aesthetic Vaginal

Surgery in a friendly and collegial atmosphere. It is not restrictive of specialty, politics, or interest group, but

is bound by the desires of its participant members for higher learning. Its core belief is “Education

without Barriers.”

CAVS 2012 brings together a dynamic group of individuals who are acknowledged leaders in their respective

fields. We welcome all those who have traveled from overseas and from far away lands. A global span of

specialty experience is represented from gynecology, urogynecology, plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery,

dermatology, medico-­‐legal, marketing, to Search Engine Optimization. This collection brings balance and a

broad perspective of the specialty that goes beyond simple marketing or self-­‐promotion. All speakers are

welcoming and eager to share their experience. All speakers are uncompensated and are present because of

their passion.

Day 1, Saturday, October 20, 2012

Symposium on Aesthetic Labial Surgeries

Program Chairman: Red Alinsod, MD

07:00 – 08:00 Breakfast, On-­‐Site Registration

08:00 – 08:10 L0: Welcome

NSOCP and CAVS: From Evolution to Revolution

Red Alinsod, MD

08:10 – 08:45 Keynote Address

L1: New and Evolving Treatments for

Female Sexual Dysfunction

Jennifer Berman, MD (35 min)

Medical Medical management and treatment of female sexual function

complaints is becoming more mainstream and gradually evolving as

more clinical and basic science studies are dedicated to solving this

problem. Aside from hormone replacement therapy, medical

management of female sexual function complaints still remains in the

experimental phases and requires "off label" use. The goal of this talk is

to educate health care professionals that not all female sexual

complaints are psychological/emotionally based and that there are

possible medical treatment options available. Attendees should gain a

general understanding of female sexual function complaints, the

etiologies that are medically based, as well as a comfort level with the

treatment options available. Studies are currently in progress assessing

the effects of vasoactive substances, adrenal and gonadal hormones and

pituitary activating hormones, as well as other neuromodulators on the

female sexual response. Aside from hormone replacement therapy, all

medications discussed in this talk, other than over the counter products,

are not FDA approved for use in women, are still in phases of clinical

trials, however, some can be prescribed off label.


6


08:45 – 09:05 L2: The Evolution of AVS: A Literature Review

Michael Goodman, MD (20 min)

This presentation will review the peer-­‐reviewed medical literature to

date in the following areas:

1) Reasons women give for requesting aesthetic vulvovaginal surgery

(AVS).

2) Psychological, sexual, and body image makeup of women

requesting AVS.

3) Outcome studies of AVS.

The goal of this lecture is to familiarize attendees with the sum of peer-­reviewed

medical literature involving the areas outlined above.

Excluded are all “opinion pieces,” anecdotal information, and

theoretical editorializing.

Suggestions will be made for areas of useful potential study with

answers to audience queries regarding the mechanics of writing a study

protocol and coordination a publishable study.

“…Only the facts, Mam..!”

09:05 – 09:25 L3: Body Image and AVS

Otto Placik, MD (20 min)

Issues of abnormal body image, real and imagined, are discussed to help

the surgeon analyze patient reasons for requesting surgery and to help

set achievable end points and expectations

09:25 – 09:45 L4: The G-­‐Spot: Science and Fiction

Gul Zikria, MD (20 min)

Since the term was coined in the early 1980s. The G Spot has been a

concept that has intrigued the lay public. It has also been a boon for

sexologists and therapists publications and practices. In the 1990s it

reemerged as a marketing term as G Spot Amplification by Dr. David

Matlock. Whereby the area called the G Spot was bulked up with

collagen. Despite the lack of scientific evidence, the public influenced

by lay press and marketing gimmicks, is demanding this procedure as a

panacea for their sexual enhancement. In this lecture I will be discussing

the Myth and science of the G Spot.

09:45 – 10:05 L5: Labia Minora Plasty Techniques: A Review

Bernard Stern, MD (20 min)

Background: Once uncommon and rarely asked for surgery, now

enormous demand by women from all walks of life.

Methods: Sculpted linear resection, deepitheliazation, Modified V-­wedge,

and Z-­‐plasty techniques.

Results: “Satisfied” cosmetic result initially 91.6%

Conclusions: The aesthetic and functional results achieved by these

evolving and continuously refined techniques, are remarkable. The

results are based on individual surgeons skills at “his” technique, not

the technique itself!


7


10:05 – 10:45 Panel Q&A, Break & Exhibits

10:45 – 11:00 L6: Natural V-­‐Wedge Labiaplasty

James Apesos, MD (15 min)

Wedge labiaplasties are a staple in plastic surgery practices. Dr. Apesos

will review indications, techniques, and results for this surgery.

11:00 – 11:15 L7: Radical Labia Minora Plasty:

A Eight Year Report

Red Alinsod, MD (15 min)

The controversial technique developed by Dr. Red Alinsod is described

and shown with a discussion on its risks and its merits.

11:15 – 11:30 L8: Sculpting of the Labia Majora and Mons with

Fillers and Fat

Christine Hamori, MD (15 min)

Recent advances in facial fillers and autologous fat grafting may be

extended to the perineal area. Volume restoration of the labia majora

and Mons pubis rejuvenates the entire pubic area giving a fuller more

youthful appearance. Improvements may be seen not only in the

overall plumpness of the area but also may have a secondary benefit to

patients bothered by visible dangling of the labia minora. Plumping of

the labia majora actually obscures the dangling labia minora making

them less visible in the standing position. Labia minora visibility is

bothersome to most patients seeking aesthetic procedures of the

vaginal area. Hence, volume restoration of the labia majora and Mons

pubis may improve the overall aesthetics of the female perineum. I will

review my techniques of volume augmentation of the perivaginal area

using hyaluronic acid and autologous fat.

11:30 – 11:47 L9: Video: Augmentation of the Female Mons

Pubis and Labia Majora

Christine Hamori, MD (22 min)

Vaginal aesthetics has become more and more important over the past

ten years as grooming habits of the area have evolved. Traditionally,

pubic hair camouflaged the Mons, clitoral hood, labia minor and labia

majora. Now over the past several years, grooming habits of the area

have changed dramatically where most patients have non or very little

pubic hair coverage of the area. Dangling labia minora, majora and

Mons flattening are now in full view, open to scrutinizing patients and

their partners. Labia minora and majora techniques reduce the skin and

mucosal excess but do not address the fat atrophy that is primarily

present in the over 40-­‐age group of women.


8


11:47 – 12:00 L10: Labial Revision Surgery

Red Alinsod, MD (13 min)

Labiaplasty surgery that has not healed properly, has separated, or has

removed too much tissue are issues faced by the Aesthetic Vaginal

Surgeon. The majority of the medical legal cases involve the removal of

too much labia minora and asymmetric bumpy wound edges.

Presented will be advanced resurfacing techniques to smoothen out

these areas of concern. These are done under local anesthesia.

12:00 – 13:00 Lunch Break & Exhibits

Panel Discussion:

Controversies of the Clitoris and G-­‐Spot

Royal Benson, MD

Michael Goodman, MD

Gul Zikria, MD

13:00 – 13:15 L11: Aesthetic Management of the Clitoral Hood

Royal Benson, MD (15 min)

This presentation discusses various aspects of managing a request for

clitoral hoodectomy. Discussion will include identification of

appropriate surgical candidates and those which are better off being

avoided. Anatomical considerations will be discussed. Basic techniques

that are easily learned and reliable will be presented.

13:15 – 13:30 L12: The Hypersensitive Clitoris

Royal Benson, MD (15min)

A difficult management problem that sometimes occurs naturally and is

sometimes iatrogenic. Discussion will cover areas of management of

Clitoral hypersensitivity and how to avoid iatrogenic causes.

13:30 – 13:45 L13: Management of the Prominent Mons Pubis

Otto Placik, MD (15 Min)

Incorporation of the Mons Pubis is an essential component in the

planning of a comprehensive approach to Vulvo-­‐Vaginal Aesthetics. This

area is often overlooked and neglected in favor of more popular

procedures. The importance of this aesthetic unit and a review of the

limited pertinent literature will be presented. Specific technical details

of the described procedures will be discussed along with a critical

analysis of the outcomes. I will also present my personal surgical

method with an intraoperative video.

13:45 – 13:55 L14: Radiofrequency Treatments for Labia Majora Laxity

Red Alinsod, MD (10 Min)

Minimally invasive Labia Majora Pelleve treatments for skin tightening

are presented. This is an excellent and exceptionally safe choice for

patients unhappy with the looseness and sagging of their Labia Majora

but do not want to have surgery.


9


13:55 – 14:10 L15: Surgical Management of the Camel Toe

Red Alinsod, MD (15 Min)

A modification of a standard Vulvectomy, Labia Majora Plasty, is

presented for the purpose of reducing the discomfort, sagging and

looseness of the Labia Majora in an aesthetically pleasing and elegant

manner. The first long term results of this technique is presented

performed over seven years.

14:10 – 14:45 Panel Q&A, Break & Exhibits

14:45 – 14:55 L16: The Unified Approach to Labiaplasty:

Minora/Majora/Hood Combined Surgery

Red Alinsod, MD (10 Min)

An advanced technique is presented that combines labiaplasty of the

minora, majora, and clitoral hood as a unified whole. This radical

labiaplasty technique allows for one single layered closure per side. This

technique is used in a select subset of patients who request maximum

comfort and elimination of the labia minora. (video presentation)

14:55 -­‐ 15:10 L17: Herpes Outbreaks Complicating Aesthetic Vaginal

Procedures

Bernard Stern, MD (15 Min)

Although herpetic outbreaks have been well documented in Cosmetic

Surgery literature (almost exclusively though in relation to cosmetic

facial procedures mostly laser and/or TCA peals), there is nothing in

Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery literature addressing this problem. Preventive

pre/intra/and post operative treatment with Acyclovir or Valtrex has

become commonplace for these procedures. Having had 3 outbreaks in

the previous year’s cosmetic vaginal procedures, no patient of which

admitted to previous exposure to the virus, one with a significant

sequellae, preventive prophylactic treatment is now being suggested.

15:10 – 15:25 L18: Medical Photography and Videography for Idiots

Red Alinsod, MD (15 Min)

A medical practice is often judged by the quality of its photographs. It is

imperative in a cosmetic practice to know how to take advantage of

today’s technologies in photography. Medical photography can be low

cost and simple when basic tenets are followed. Medical photography

can be used for medical documentation, medico-­‐legal protection,

marketing, advertising, staff training, and patient education. This

presentation focuses on the typical types of photography done for an

aesthetic vaginal surgery practice.


10


15:25 – 15:50 L19: Relationship Marketing 2.0: The Science of

Subtlety (25 Min)

Monique Ramsey

It's not about the tools it's about how you use them. This session

will cover the elements of a successful relationship marketing and social

media strategy using new media tools, such as Facebook, Google+,

Pinterest, Twitter, and more. We'll explore the top mistakes made by

practices (and what to do instead). We'll also cover how to build a

thriving, engaged community while avoiding to fall back into the trap of

"traditional" intrusive marketing and sales promotions.

15:50 – 16:05 L20: Search Engine Optimization: Keys to Success

Sergei Baghdasarian, LLP (15 Min)

Every few months the major search engines change their algorithm for

search terms. This update will help practices avoid pitfalls and

problems.

16:05 – 16:25 Video Fest

18:30 – 22:00 Welcome Reception Cocktail & Dinner

Meet the Faculty

Specialty recognition and gifts of gratitude

Day 2, Sunday, October 21, 2012

Symposium on Aesthetic Vulvo-­‐Vaginal Surgeries

Program Chairman: Red Alinsod, MD

07:00 – 08:00 Breakfast and Registration

08:00 – 08:10 Welcome

L21: AAAVS: Helping Humanity

Carlos Diazcadena, MD (10 Min)

The need for surgical repair and revisions for genital mutilation and

botched surgeries is an ever growing problem. A new foundation has

been formed to help those less fortunate needing specific gynecologic

surgeries to improve their lives.

08:10 – 08:20 L22: West Africa Fistula Foundation

Darius Maggi, MD (10 Min)

The non-­‐profit WAFF has transformed lives and has freely given its time

and efforts in Africa. They seek the aid of interested pelvic surgeons to

expand their vision.

08:20 – 08:40 Keynote Address:

L23: Female Genital Mutilation in Africa and the

Middle East

Amr Seif-­‐Eldin, MD (20 Min)

Background: Female Genital Mutilation (circumcision) is widely

practiced in sub Saharan Africa, dating as far back as 2000 B.C, It is

estimated that 140 million women have been circumcised world wide,

and an additional 3 million women are still circumcised every year.

Although new human rights and health care laws have been

implemented for banning FGM practices in many African countries,

FGM still remains a strong cultural tradition and a severe health hazard

to many young women in the region.

Genital reconstructive surgery after FGM (female circumcision) remains

a major challenge in cosmetic gynecology; new techniques of labial,

clitoral and clitoral hood reconstruction have been adopted to reverse

the effects of FGM; restoring a sense of dignity, self esteem, and

pleasure to these unfortunate women subjected to this brutal tradition.

Objective: To explain, present, and update, a holistic and

comprehensive review of FGM practices in Africa and other parts of the

world, introducing the history, reasons, prevalence, geographic

distribution, types, anatomical & physiological considerations,

complications, and evaluate methods of cosmetic and reconstructive

repair.

Key words: Female Genital Mutilation -­‐ Circumcision

– Female Genital Reconstruction.


12


08:40 – 08:50 L24: WHO and Genital Mutilation

Otto Placik, MD (10 Min)

The World Health Organization (WHO) currently classifies Female

Genital Mutilation as falling into one of four categories. Given these

guidelines, the end result is that any non-­‐medical procedures, and

specifically elective interventions, on the female genitalia could be

loosely interpreted as a form of genital mutilation. The specific

implications of this and communications with the WHO to provide

insight about their approach as well as concerns will be presented. A

statement which advocates the benefits of Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery

will be proposed with time for discussion and audience input.

08:50—09:10 L25: De-­‐Infibulation Treatment and Management

Amr, Seif-­‐Eldin, MD (20 Min)

Background: Infibulation is a severe form of Female Genital

Mutilation (type III), also known as Pharaonic circumcision, and is still

practiced in sub Saharan Africa, regarded as a strong cultural tradition.

The vulva and vagina are covered and closed by skin leaving only a 1-­‐2

cm opening for urination and menstrual flow; this usually makes sexual

intercourse very difficult and painful, with female sexual aversion and

marital problems.

De-­‐infibulation, is the surgical cutting or opening the hood of skin

covering the vaginal inlet, allowing normal and painless sexual

relationship.

Objective: To evaluate the outcome and patient satisfaction from

cosmetic and reconstructive genital surgery procedures on previously

infibulated (circumcised) women, regarding cosmetic appearance and

improved sexual function.

Method: 24 infibulated women were subjected to a de-­‐fibulation

procedure for surgical separation of the joined/sutured labia after

infibulation circumcision, have been studied in this work.

Results: Patients with type III circumcision (infibuation) have been

evaluated in this study Patient age was between 17 and 42, mean age

was 25.4 years.

Cosmetic outcome: 22 patients had no complications and were

satisfied with the cosmetic outcome.

2 patients had minor pain and complications and did not comment on

cosmetic outcome.

Sexual function: 21 patients felt improved sexual function and no pain,

4 weeks after the procedure.

2 patients felt no difference in sexual function

1 patient had an infection and pain that lasted for more than 4 weeks

Conclusion: approximately 92% of patients were satisfied with the

cosmetic outcome of the procedure, while 88% said they had improved

sexual function and no pain during intercourse.

So far the de-­‐infibulation procedure for (Type III) circumcision has given

us satisfactory results, pain after the procedure has been attributed to

minor infection and poor hygiene and was treated.

Key words: Female Genital Mutilation – Infibulation

– de-­‐infibulation circumcision repair.


13


09:10 – 09:25 L26: Labial and Clitoral Anatomy

Marci Bowers, MD (15 min)

Dr. Bowers will give an intensive review of this small area of the body

that has garnered a great deal of interest for the WHO vaginal surgeon.

Dr. Bowers will give

09:25 – 09:55 L27: FGM Restoration of Form and Function

Marci Bowers, MD (30 min)

Discussion on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) /ritual female

circumcision, its WHO classification, incidence, etiology and Reversal

techniques including technical details, Photos and postoperative follow

up.

09:55 – 10:15 L28: Transgender Medicine: Aesthetic and

Functional Option for the MTF and FTM

Marci Bowers, MD (20 min)

A review of Transgender Medicine with an emphasis on surgical

technique for both Male-­‐to-­‐female (MTF) and Female-­‐to-­‐male patients.

A video of a complete MTF Vaginoplasty will be included in the

presentation. Information regarding WPATH standards of care, pre-­‐op

evaluation of subjects and postoperative follow up will also be offered.

10:15 – 10:45 Panel Q&A, Break & Exhibits

10:45 – 11:00 L29: The Physiology Behind Vaginal

Tightening Operations: Why They Work

Michael Goodman, MD (15 Min)

Peer-­‐reviewed statistical studies confirm the effectiveness, when

“enhancement of sexual function” is the endpoint, of vaginal tightening

operations.

This presentation will discuss the biomechanics, innervations and

physioglogy of the clitoral complex, anterior and posterior vaginal wall,

and cervix as they relate to orgasmic function, and may even theorize

on the differences between clitoral and vaginally activated orgasms.

It will discuss the varying modalities utilized to provide vaginal

tightening, and “…how they work.”

11:00 – 11:15 L30: In-­‐Office Vaginoplasty: Eight Year Experience

Red Alinsod, MD (15 Min)

Patient safety should be the paramount issue in any surgical approach.

New technologies have been developed in the recent years that allow

for safe awake surgeries that can be done in one’s office without the

need for IVs, spinals, or general anesthesia. Properly trained surgeons

can achieve excellent results with in-­‐office perineoplasty, posterior

repairs, and vaginoplasty surgery. For fee-­‐for service patients the price

advantages are tremendous. Presented are emerging technologies and

advanced techniques to aid in this vision of more effective and efficient

healthcare.


14


11:15—11:30 L31: Vaginal Rejuvenation in a Compromised Pelvis

Joao Brito Jaenisch, MD (15 Min)

The speaker recently received an award for “Best Aesthetic

Gynecologists” in Southern Brazil. As a renowned laparoscopist and

gynecologic surgeon, he stresses the importance of a complete workup

for pelvic floor defects prior to surgery. Restoring these abnormalities at

the time of vaginal rejuvenation/vaginoplasty is stressed from a

Brazillian technical point of view. Dr. Jaenisch will update our

knowledge and suggest ways to improve outcomes.

11:30—11:50 L32: The Dilemma of Vaginal Mesh Repairs in AVS

Arturo Menchaca, MD (20 Min)

It has been estimated that up to 45% of adult women suffer from

Urinary incontinence and 5% to 10% pelvic organ prolapse. Vaginal

Prolapses affect a woman’s quality of life and affects pelvic function

Including sexual. Over 300,000 women/year will undergo reconstruction

and vaginoplasty for POP. The goal is to restore anatomy, function and

sexual satisfaction. Different methods of repair reveal an average failure

rate as follows; 29% without mesh, 23% with absorbable synthetic

mesh, 18% for absorbable biological mesh and 9% for non-­‐absorbable

synthetic mesh. Adverse events have been reported with the use of

mesh. In the July 13, 2011, the FDA put out a Safety Communication:

UPDATE on Serious Complications Associated with Transvaginal

Placement of Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse stating that from

Jan. 01, 2008 through Dec. 31, 2010, the FDA received 2,874 additional

reports of complications associated with surgical mesh devices used to

repair POP and SUI, with 1,503 reports associated with POP repairs and

1,371 associated with SUI repairs.” The two most common reasons for

legal action are mesh erosion and dyspareunia. In this lecture I will

update the outcome after the FDA warning, the extraordinary decrease

in mesh usage and will present my method to reduce the possibility of

adverse events to less than 5% and the rate of erosion less than 1%.

11:50 – 12:05 L33: Complications of Labial and Vaginal Surgery

James, Apesos, MD (15 Min)

How to avoid trouble, identify trouble, and fix trouble in the

vulvovaginal area.

12:05 – 13:00 Panel Q & A, Lunch Break, Exhibits


15


13:00—13:15 L34: Management of Vaginoplasty Complications

Arturo Menchaca, MD (15 Min)

Vaginoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that in the last few years is being

requested with greater frequency. Some authorities state that this

along with labioplasty, are the two cosmetic procedures with the

greatest rate of increase in the recent past. With the increasing number

of procedures and the novelty to many surgeons the complication rate

will likewise increase. To avoid complications it is imperative to clearly

understands what the patient wishes, to assess its validity, to formulate

a plan that include preoperative preparation, precise execution during

the procedure, recognition of complications during the procedure and

postsurgically. Complications during surgery may be obvious and

immediately repaired, other complications will present with time. In this

lecture the most frequent complications will be presented along with

how to avoid them and how to resolve them once they become evident.

Some complications may be avoided in the preconception period and

some will resolution after the procedure. If possible one should activate

the least number of factors in accomplishing the patients desires and

thereby bringing satisfaction and happiness as the end result. Non-­surgical

laser treatment being an option in some cases.

13:15 – 13:35 L35: The G-­‐Peel: Advanced Vulvar Skin Care

Clara Santos, MD (20 Min)

The concept of anti-­‐aging is now more popular than ever all over the

world.

Today everyone wants to look more vibrant and youthful. In recent

years, the quest for beautiful, healthy & vibrant skin has begun to

include patients' strong desire to rejuvenate the intimate areas, like

vulvar skin.

The number of patients seeking vulvar skin rejuvenation has increased

dramatically over the past several years and its popularity is forecasted

to grow significantly over the next five years.

Various pathologies can affect the vulvar skin area, such as: Lichen,

Nevus and Dyschromias; all of which negatively impacts ones self-­esteem

and should be treated properly.

This presentation will focus on Dyschromias, especially hyper

pigmentation of the vulva area and its approach and treatment with a

special peel, called G-­‐Peel.

13:35 – 13:50 L36: Carboxitherapy and Stretch Marks

Clara Santos, MD (15 Min)

For years Stretch Marks have caused emotional stress for many women

around the world.

Although, stretch marks are only a minor skin condition, most women

hate having these unattractive lesions on their bodies. I have see

patients, who suffer from stretch marks, presenting with tremendous

disappointment, low confidence and low self-­‐esteem.

Stretch marks appear especially during puberty or

pregnancy. Sometimes it occurs in young people who workout heavily,

lifting weights. Stretch marks can also be caused by obesity or when a

person has dramatic shifts in either weight gain or loss.

For many years, the conventional wisdom was non-­‐treatment, as there

was the established belief that there were no effective treatments for

stretch marks.

For quite some time, I have disagreed with the conventional wisdom

and have tried different options to treat this unpleasant condition and

improve patient’s life quality.

Based on my own clinical experience, and after much trial and error, I

have found that the most effective treatments for stretch marks are,

Carboxy Therapy and Cromo Peel. These treatments are safe and easy

to perform. Patient’s satisfaction is high and they have showed

incredible results.

13:50 – 14:05 L37: Tumescent Liposuction in the Office

Joao Brito Jaenisch, MD (15 Min)

14:05 – 14:15 L38: Fundamentals of Nutrition for Wound Healing

Jacqueline Jacques, ND (10 Min)

Normal wound healing requires good nutritional status. In addition,

surgical wounds may place further nutritional demands on the body,

which, if not met, may impair immunity, healing and function. Poor or

borderline nutrition is much more common in the general population

than many believe, and comprehensive nutritional assessments are not

a common part of pre-­‐surgical assessment. Assuring good nutrition –

ideally before a cosmetic surgery procedure – may help people to heal

better and faster. This lecture will give an overview of the key

nutritional elements that can be used to support and optimize wound

healing. We will also look at how to incorporate this knowledge into an

aesthetic surgical practice.

14:15 – 14:45 Panel Q&A, Break & Exhibits

14:45 – 14:55 L39: Probiotics and Urogenital Health

Jacqueline Jacques, ND (10 Min)

The human microbiome has proven to be a rich area of study in

women’s health. The association between abnormal vaginal microbiota

and increased risk for sexually transmitted infections, bladder and

vaginal infections, and a higher rate of preterm labor all point to the

possible use of supplemental flora – commonly referred to as probiotics

– as possible therapeutic agents. This presentation will review literature

related to the use of probiotics in maintaining female vaginal and

bladder health. We will focus on commonly encountered health

challenges and the areas best supported by clinical research data.


18


14:55 – 15:15 L40: Social Media in Modern Medicine

Jennifer Berman, MD (20 Min)

We see the way relationships build, the way messages spread, and the

tremendous amount of data that’s been assembled about who we are

and what we do with the intorduction of Facebook. While the potential

platform for information and networking is huge, physicians have been

largely unable to take full advantage of what social media connections

have to offer. Specifically, the Health Insurance Portability and

Accountability Act (HIPAA) prevents doctors from using email or text

messaging, much less open platforms like Facebook or Twitter, to

communicate about patient care without risk .

But research has shown that as far as technology goes, doctors

themselves have proven to be early adopters. With physicians

connecting in real time across specialties and beyond the traditional

bounds of hospital walls, patients may soon be able to stop worrying

about getting access to the right specialist. Medicine’s brightest minds

will be accessible from the remotest spots — on an airplane, at an

underserved clinic, or in the thick of a disaster zone. Soon, any doctor

with a mobile device will have the resources and reach to pull together

a personalized, patient-­‐specific team of experts for any given case.

Sometimes, it will take as little as a question to the right expert in a sub-­specialty

to change the course of treatment for the better. In other

instances, more lasting and meaningful collaborations might take shape.

For doctors, who have historically relied heavily on sifting through a

surfeit of medical journals, this kind access online and real time can

help ensure that the most promising and thought-­‐provoking research or

techniques rise to the surface and reach a wider audience. Moreover,

by posting, sharing, and commenting on articles and cases within their

professional networks, physicians will become more active and engaged

participants in the future of medical research and learning.

The creation of these overlapping communities of doctors could tap a

goldmine of public health data. Using discussion threads about

symptoms and outbreaks, the spread of infectious disease can be

tracked automatically, as can the efficacy and speed of treatment plans.

Complications of new therapies, previously unknown risk factors for

common diseases, even entirely new disease entities may be identified

from increased sharing of data that has until now lived in the filing

cabinets and memories of individual physicians.

The social power of networks like Facebook and Twitter to connect,

entertain, and enrich our lives is undeniable. It’s time to extend the

networking paradigm to healthcare and our practices.

15:15 – 15:35 L41: Media and Marketing

Otto Placik, MD (20 Min)

Aesthetic Vulvo-­‐Vaginal Surgery presents some unique concerns when it

comes to media and marketing that are not traditionally encountered

with other cosmetic surgery procedures. The emerging public

awareness of these increasingly popular procedures will be reviewed.

My approach to marketing these procedures with specific examples of

marketing materials used in an office based practice as well as my

experience with the internet and lessons learned will be presented.

15:35 – 15:55 L42: How To Be Successful in Genital Plastics:

From Marketing to Staff Training to Patient Relations

Michael Goodman, MD (20 Min)

No, Virginia, you can’t “just go out there and do it…” without expecting

mediocrity at best and damage and litigation at worst.

This presentation will explore the presenter’s experience, views, and

recommendations in regards to:

1) What training do you need prior to performing genitoplasties?

2) OK. Now you’re trained. How do you integrate Genital Plastics into

your practice:

a) Staff education and training

b) Patient relations

c) Marketing

d) Separating yourself from the competition

3) Why you need to be facile in Sexual Medicine.

15:55 – 16:10 L43: Research in AVS: The Cutting Edge

surgery. He was the first Rutledge Fellow at MD Anderson Cancer and Tumor Institute and was also accepted

to Yale’s Gynecologic Oncology fellowship. While heading the Gynecological Services at George Air Force

Base, California, and Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. Dr. Alinsod concentrated on benign gynecology,

urogynecology and pelvic surgery. During his 12-­‐year military career, he trained extensively in vaginal

surgery, hysteroscopic, and advanced laparoscopic surgery. He became a fellow of The Accreditation Council

of Gynecologic Endoscopy in 1995, Certificate #20, the first surgeon to achieve this distinction in Nevada. He

is one of the first surgeons in the United States to perform and teach the “trans-­‐obturator tape”

incontinence sling, Anterior IVS sling, and Posterior IVS vaginal suspension. He has taught pelvic

reconstructive surgery for various companies (AMS, BARD, Boston Scientific, Tyco, Caldera Medical,

Coloplast/Mpathy Medical) over the past 15 years and knows of the products and technologies that relate to

incontinence and pelvic reconstructive surgery, specifically mesh augmented repairs. Dr. Alinsod was the first

surgeon to attach biologic and polypropylene mesh to the Posterior IVS device and use it for posterior

compartment repair along with apical vault suspension now copied by many companies. He invented a

vaginal approach to uterine suspension using standard sling material and mesh suspension kits in 1997. He

owns several patents including the one for the Lone Star APS Retractor System and the “Sling with Bladder

Support” from which came systems such as Perigee, Avaulta A, Prolift A, and Ascend A. Most recently, he

was awarded the patent for a surgical stand and stray for pelvic/vaginal/colorectal/urologic surgery. Dr.

Alinsod is the primary designer and inventor of Caldera Medical’s Ascend Pelvic Floor Mesh device and also

the designer of Coloplast/Mpathy Medical’s shaped Restorelle Mesh. He is the inventor of the LoneStar APS

Pain Pump System, and Alinsod Labiaplasty Pain Catheters. Dr. Alinsod continues to be active in surgical

teaching and product design and development as it relates to vaginal and pelvic surgery.

After a ten-­‐year career in Los Angeles working for a very busy medium sized multi-­‐specialty group, Dr.

Alinsod decided to try a solo urogynecologic practice. In 2004, he was recruited by South Coast Medical

Center in Laguna Beach, California, to develop the Women’s Center and head up the Urogynecology services.

Today, he is the director and owner of South Coast Urogynecology and the Alinsod Institute for Aesthetic

Vaginal Surgery. He developed the first CME approved course in AVS and founded CAVS 7 years ago to
