39: Everything you ever wanted to know about prolapse and why we currently can’t repair Levator Ani Avulsions, with specialist surgeon Dr. Ray Hodgson.
It's exciting to be bringing you something that we've never done before on the show, we're sharing a conversation I had with our very first male guest.
I know this is women's health. I know this is our pelvic health space
I think after a couple of minutes of listening, you're going to realise why I invited this guest, in particular, to come and talk to us.
His name is Dr. Ray Hodgson. He is a gynecologist. Also a specialist pelvic organ prolapse surgeon, here in Australia and also in Nepal.
He's written a book called Heartbreak In The Himalayas, which shares his journey of how he came to be a volunteer surgeon in Nepal, helping women as young as in their early twenties with prolapse.
This is a long episode and for good reason, there's so much valuable information about prolapse, surgery, and what we can be doing today to manage living with prolapse.
This episode is for you if you want to know more about:
