Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and Surgery: Interview with Dr. Sam Siddighi

Unfortunately, pelvic floor dysfunction is on the rise and it has bypassed the old, the woman, and the obese. In this interview with Dr. Siddighi, we will cover:

  • The surgical protocol
  • Reconstruction of the pelvic floor
  • What to look for in a surgeon (if you wait to get to that level)
  • Preventative intervention
  • How mild to moderate case therapy should involve biological breathing and
  • How important it is to attend to the structures supporting the actual pelvic floor vs focusing just on the pelvic floor
