As a physician, I feel it is truly important for my patients to understand the important issues related to prolapse and urinary incontinence, as well as the options for treating these distressing conditions. With a good understanding of the problem and their options, women can make good informed choices regarding their care. As a surgeon, I spend a lot of time explaining pelvic organ prolapse to my patients.
I am very pleased to see Sherrie Palm doing thesame thing from a woman's perspective. As a woman who had to deal with prolapse herself, she shares the inside information on how to recognize prolapse and how to get qualified help for it. This book is a must read for every woman!

Sherrie Palm's tireless work as a patient advocate, and as author of "Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic," continues to play a key role in this transformation of women's healthcare. I recommend Sherrie's book as an essential reference for women impacted by these conditions, or for any individual seeking a better understanding of this remarkably common women's health condition.

Sherrie Palm's book, 'Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic, ' is my single most trusted resource for my patients to gain insight and education for optimal decision making in their care. I keep several copies available in my office at all times and encourage my patients to get a copy of their own.

Brilliant clinical and personal experience by Sherrie Palm has given the reader an unbiased, thoughtful, and useful insight into the issues surrounding pelvic organ prolapse. By being a well-versed patient advocate she is able to bridge the gaps of knowledge and experience that the lay person can relate with and the doctor relate to.

Sherrie is such an inspiration as she continues her crusade to educate women, healthcare providers, and academics about the impact that POP has on women's lives. She understands that impact and she has dedicated her life to educating others and to obliterating the stigma attached to POP. I am so grateful for this book, for APOPS,
and for Sherrie. This book is a must read for all women, as we are all vulnerable to issues affecting the pelvic floor.
Thank you, Sherrie Palm, for modeling passion, compassion, tenacity, and persistence, and for encouraging and empowering women to use their voice...because it is true - every voice matters.
So many women - whether new mothers or squarely on the other side of menopause - say "If I only knew" when they learn that POP is the root of their physical pain, sexual dysfunction, and fecal and urinary incontinence. Sherrie's life work is to make sure more and more women know how to prevent and manage POP. And thanks to the
information in this book, the medical community is becoming more sensitized.
Most importantly, Sherrie's work inspires us to join forces in order to restore not only our health, but our dignity.
