Thermi®, an Almirall Company, is a leading global manufacturer of temperature controlled radiofrequency technology. Because the results have been so astonishing and exciting, it has been highlighted by many television shows. The other Thermi line products include ThermiTight, ThermiRase, ThermiSmooth Face, and ThermiSmooth Body, which are not available at SIWSH.
ThermiVa should not be used on patients who are pregnant, have a urinary tract infection or a skin infection in or around the area of treatment. Treating physicians should perform required testing to confirm patient is negative for infection or pregnancy. Patient should be awake and monitored during the procedure for any unexpected symptoms.
The da Vinci Surgical System allows surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision, and control, and performing complicated surgical cases through just a few small incisions. It has a magnified 3D high-definition screen that the surgeon views as well as controllers that the surgeon manipulates with her hands. These control extremely precise surgical arms that operate on the patient which bend and rotate in ways that the human hand cannot. The result is a much less invasive procedure with a shorter recovery. It gives the doctor the precision of open surgery and the patient an easier recovery because of smaller incisions. Better for the doctor, better for the patient.
Dr. Williams received her da Vinci Robotic Certification in 2009, and St. Tammany Parish Hospital was the first Northshore hospital to acquire the Da Vinci Surgical System. This exciting technology is available for patients right in their own backyard.
Because there are certain conditions that can only be diagnosed on the microscopic level, SIWSH performs a vulvoscopy on these patients when needed. A vulvoscopy allows Dr. Williams to look for abnormal cells around the vulva which can indicate several conditions and treatments. This enhances the effectiveness of each patient’s plan of care.
