What is MonaLisa Touch®?
The MonaLisa Touch® is a form of laser therapy treatment for vaginal rejuvenation that gives effective relief and offers life-changing results. It has been clinically proven to eliminate vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, itchiness, burning, and urinary incontinence.
This treatment works by delivering laser energy into the cells to stimulate the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the treated area.
During this procedure, a small metal laser wand is inserted into the vagina and rotated during treatment to target the internal and external vaginal tissues.
The treatment is painless, requires no anesthesia, and offers zero downtime following treatment. It is recommended that sexual intercourse and the use of tampons are avoided for several days.
The typical treatment course is three 5-minute sessions over a period of 18 weeks. Many women experience positive results following the first session which will continue to improve throughout treatment.

A Pap Smear is a test that is usually performed yearly after a woman turns 21 or becomes sexually active. The test is a simple, quick collection of cells. While a Pap Smear is not a diagnostic test for cervical cancer, it can detect any abnormalities which can then lead to further testing.
At the start of the exam, you will be asked to remove your clothing from the waist down. You will be given a medical gown and a half sheet to cover your lap. At the medical center office, there is an examination chair with stirrups at the end for your feet. You will position yourself in the chair, with your feet in the stirrups, so that you can be examined. An instrument, called a speculum, is lubricated and inserted into the vagina. This tool allows the doctor to have a clear path to the cervix. It is important to remember to relax and breath. This will relax the muscles of the vagina and allow for an easier examination by the medical professional.
After the speculum is inserted, a tiny, thin bristle brush is used to collect some tissue from the back of the cervix. Most women do not feel anything besides a light sensation when this is performed while some experience a feeling similar to menstrual cramps. From here, the medical professional places the sample in a small tube to be sent off to a laboratory for testing. The speculum is removed and the Pap Smear is over. A Pap Smear procedure only takes a few minutes to complete. After the Pap Smear is completed you can get dressed and conclude your medical examination.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery – Da Vinci System
Surgery is performed with the help of a robotic machine controlled by the surgeon. Your surgeon is in complete control of the machine and the surgery. No aspects of the surgery are “automated.” Rather, the da Vinci system allows your surgeon to perform highly technical and precise motions that would not be possible with the human hand.
During a da Vinci surgery, the surgeon sits at the control center just a few feet away from the operating table. The surgeon’s station has small grips, which the surgeon uses to guide the actual surgical instruments that perform the operation. These precise controls are tremor-resistant and can scale down large motions. The surgeon can view everything on a magnified 3D high-definition viewer just above the instrument controls.
