Introduction of PRP to laser procedures!

Technological advances in medicine has gained momentum in all fields, with regenerative medicine and anti-aging medicine in the lead. Tremendous advances have been made already and some of the predictions for the future are almost mindboggling. Increased expected lifespans don't even seem to be a debating point anymore - it is generally accepted that it is coming. More important than absolute lifespan though, is disease and disability free life. Currently this is where most successes have recently been achieved. Remember, many of the 'normal' results of aging and wear and tear on our bodies will eventually become optional, at least till much later than before. It is important though that we try to maintain ourselves in as good a condition as possible until many of these technologies become freely available. Good diet, exercise, not smoking, maintaining normal weight and reducing stress are the mainstays of a healthy life and have always been. Now however, medical innovations and technologies are beginning to become available to help as well.

With this in mind, other than the laser procedures I am offering, I am now offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to complement and augment vaginal and cosmetic laser treatments. PRP is used widely in sports medicine, rehabilitation medicine and increasingly in cosmetic procedures to augment the response obtainable with standard therapies and to boost healing and rejuvenation. The use of PRP in the vagina is relatively new, but has been found to significantly complement and improve the outcomes of other treatment modalities, especially laser. Please also go to the 'Cosmetic Laser Services' tab under the 'Services' menu for more detail.

Coming soon: Intra-urethral laser for severe stress urinary incontinence!

I plan to be one of the first practitioners in Canada to introduce and offer direct, intra-urethral but office based laser treatment for certain types of difficult to treat stress urinary incontinence. Currently certain types of SUI are very difficult to treat, and in some cases almost untreatable because of associated medical problems that rule out surgery. Our current treatment options for some such situations are highly unsatisfactory, and often don’t work very well.

Dr. Murphy recognized as international expert at IUGA 2017

The 2017 International Urogynecological Association meeting was held in Vancouver in June. During the meeting two internationally recognized expert surgeons were asked to do demonstration surgery, and Dr. Murphy was one of them. The other was Dr. John Gebhart from the Mayo Clinic in the US. The surgery was performed on stage, on cadaver patients, in front of a live audience. The procedures were broadcast in real time on large screens and were interactive, with both surgeons wearing microphones. On stage was an internationally recognized expert panel for moderation and keeping the surgeons' feet to the fire.

Dr. Murphy performed a laparoscopic colpohysteropexy and Space of Retzius dissection for demonstration of the anatomy.

The event was attended by about 500 audience members.

This was the first ever event of its kind at an IUGA annual general meeting, and Dr. Murphy was honored to be a part of this historic event.

Dr. Murphy recognized as international expert at IUGA 2016

The International Urogynecological Association's 41st annual meeting was held in Cape Town, South Africa in early August, 2016. Dr. Murphy was honoured by being asked to be on faculty for the conference, and was one of a select few people who taught during the two full day courses held for international delegates. He gave four lectures in total, during the workshop and course titled: Current controversies in pelvic floor surgery. The invitation re-confirms Dr. Murphy's standing in the international community as an recognized international expert.

Prior to the conference, Dr. Murphy also spent time at the University of Stellenbosch medical school and division of urogynecology and gave two lectures to the department of obstetrics and gynecology there. 

New Devices and Medical Advances

Letter written by Dr. Murphy in 2008 predicting mesh related class action lawsuits:

Pelvic Health & Childbirth was published already in 2003. During the years since then there have been significant developments in the recognition and treatment of pelvic floor disorders, especially incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Vaginal Mesh Class Action Lawsuits

I've been following the development of the vaginal mesh class action lawsuits with interest. Please read my essay dated August 2008 on this website, under the title 'New Devices'. You'll see that I predicted a major class action lawsuit coming soon, at that time! Here were my exact words quoted from my 2008 whitepaper:

"I have been telling some of my colleagues that I fully expect a major class action lawsuit to be launched within the next ten years".
