This book will help you become an active participant with your doctor in the treatment plan that YOU feel most comfortable with. Dr. Hoyte streses that treatment is available and you do NOT have to live with POP (a good abbreviation as that's what it feels like) if you choose not to.
Don't hesitate to take the book with you to your next Dr. appt.
The first part of the book describes and discusses treatment of prolapsed. It is EXTREMELY repetitive. I can only guess that the author was just trying to fill the pages to turn his information pamphlet into something that he could pass off as an actual book. Or else he believes that his audience consists of women with extremely low IQs and that repeating the same thing over and over and over to them might help them to understand it.
After doing this and briefly brushing over some other treatment options, the author moves on to his purpose – promoting the DaVinci (robot assisted) Sacrocolpopexy. He refers to it as the ‘Gold Standard in permanent prolapse repair”. There is a bit of bias there because the person making the claim is the same person performing the surgery. Other than using the word ‘permanent’ he does not say how long the results of this surgery can be expected to last. Buyer beware - Recent studies suggest that seven year outcomes after this surgery are poor and that the risk of complications are as high or higher than other prolapse repair procedures.
Bottom line – don’t confuse propaganda with information and don’t buy this book. If you are interested in the procedure, google it. Read what everyone has to say about it, not just the opinion of the guy who is making millions off of it.
