Should ThermiVa perform by doctors only ??

In our office, our physician extenders (our NP & two PA's) perform all of the ThermiVa treatments.This is legal in California. It does depend on the state, as far as what the requirements are.

ThermiVa can be performed by trained professionals in the office. Some offices have physicians or RN's perform the procedure. Speak with your provider about their credentials to help you feel comfortable and confident during your treatment.

At Pearl Women's Center, we strongly believe that this treatment should be delivered after thorough evaluate by a gynecologic surgeon fully trained in evaluation of pelvic floor disorders. Patients suffering from the problems that Thermiva can address may be candidates for many different therapies. In some cases, problems are severe enough that the optimal treatment is surgery, rather than Thermiva, and in fact Thermiva may be a suboptimal therapy. In the hands of a practitioner that does not do the full spectrum of pelvic floor therapies, Thermiva is a hammer and everything is a nail, leading to patients who are dissatisfied with the therapy because they were never good candidates in the first place. But when offered to the right patients, we can expect good outcomes in the vast majority of patients.

Who can perform ThermiVa Treatments?
Should ThermiVa be performed by doctors only?
As the first Ob/Gyn in San Antonio to be offering ThermiVa, I feel it is important that a doctor performs the procedures. Since I practice cosmetic-plastic gynecology, this is a great option for women who have mild pelvic relaxation that may not be surgical candidates for vaginal rejuvenation or for the very active women who don't have the downtime for surgery. If the ThermiVa does not produce the desired results, one can always re-examine the surgical options. This can also be used on patients who are not surgical candidates due to medical problems like diabetes, morbid obesity and breast cancer who cannot take estrogen.
Without meaning to be disrespectful, it is hard to imagine women going to dermatologists, med spas or plastic surgeons for these vaginal treatments as they do not specialize in women's sexual health issues nor do they focus their practices on female surgeries if that is needed.
I hope this information is helpful.
