A t the core of The Vaginal Surgery and Urogynecology Institute sits the surgical talents of Dr. Veronikis. His passion for the perfection of surgery and his devotion to only practice gynecologic surgery has led him to refine a surgical skill set that very few surgeons possess and brings women from all over the country to his office.
Treating uterine and vaginal prolapse from a vaginal approach which is the least invasive of all forms of hysterectomy and post-hysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse – no abdominal incisions with results and success that rival the standard success rates of abdominal sacrocolpopexy. His extensive 17 year history of practicing surgical care for women with cystocele, enterocele, rectocele, urinary incontinence, and fecal incontinence had their foundation in a three year fellowship in Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery and Urogynecology under the guidance of Dr. David H. Nichols.
The practice of the Institute also includes patients with vaginal agenesis, Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome (MRKH). Dr. Veronikis’s impressive vaginal surgical skills and ability to counsel young women with this sensitive condition allows a treatment that goes far beyond the actual surgery.
Mesh complications from vaginal mesh kits or patients who have experienced narrowed or shortened vaginas from prior outside surgeries also seek out the Institute for the delicate techniques required in the complexity of mesh removal and restoration of anatomy and function as well as in the treatment of dyspareunia.
Vesicovaginal and rectovaginal fistulae are among the most difficult gynecologic surgical repairs and cause tremendous grief and stress to the afflicted patients. The treatment of these conditions requires a talented surgeon with an understanding of the anatomy involved to produce a result that does not require repetitive surgeries. These are surgeries that may best be performed by a vaginal surgeon such as Dr. Veronikis, and we encourage you to call our office for a consultation.
