PATIENT: CD

  • AGE: 26
  • DIAGNOSIS: Vestibulodynia (VVS), dyspareunia, vaginismus.
  • TREATMENT: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

“It's hard to put into word the relief of finally finding a doctor who understands what I have been going through. After five years of clueless doctors, misdiagnoses, and ineffective treatments, I think I actually cried when I realized Dr. Hamod had devoted his career treating women with vestibulodynia and other sexual dysfunctions. My path to recovery has not been quick or easy, but Dr. Hamod is committed to finding a solution to every woman's individual needs, and I know that he cares sincerely about each one of his patients. Other women like myself will know how difficult, how exhausting, it is to stay optimistic with conditions such as these. Dr. Hamod gives me hope.”

PATIENT: LC

  • AGE: 46
  • DIAGNOSIS: Severe Vestibulodynia (VVS) & dyspareunia, lichen sclerosus.
  • TREATMENT: Perineoplasty for Vestibulodynia 1998, PRP/CO2 laser Rx for vulvar dystrophy 2016

“I have known and trusted Dr. Hamod since 1996, when I moved to Baltimore from New York City. I needed to find a specialist to help with burning and major discomfort in the vulvar area. Johns Hopkins is world renowned, so I started there. Dr. Hamod was highly commended. I never used to agree to see a male gynecologist, however my symptoms were getting to be so severe that I was willing to try. From the first appointment, I felt very comfortable and knew I was in good hands. He diagnosed, treated, and performed surgery for my vulvodynia. This was all done in time to get me ready for my upcoming wedding. I am happy to report that I was able to enjoy my honeymoon very much :-) I will be forever grateful for Dr. Hamod. Not only has he improved my quality of life from the care he has shown (and continues to show), but he also delivered the best gift of all: my 15 year old son!”

PATIENT: LM

  • AGE: 50
  • DIAGNOSIS: Post menopausal genitourinary syndrome with vulvovaginal atrophy, perineal & labial tears, vaginal laxity, & orgasmic disorder.
  • TREATMENT: Fractional CO2 laser & PRP Therapy

“The temporary pain that occurs doing the procedure is a small cost to pay for the dramatic improvements that I have seen after the first treatment. The second treatment today was less uncomfortable than the first. Looking forward to the third and final treatment, to have a long-term improvement in comfort level and sexual experience.”

PATIENT: MMH

  • AGE: 53
  • DIAGNOSIS: Post-Menopausal vaginal dryness & nocturia.
  • TREATMENT: Fractional CO2 laser & PRP Therapy

“I hated that after I hit menopause, I was so dry, that when my husband and I had sex, it would hurt. Dr. Hamod treated me and it doesn’t hurt anymore! I feel like my old self! Also as I got older, I had to get up more and more at night to go to the bathroom, sometimes four and five times! Dr. Hamod treated me and I am so much better. What a relief to get a restful night’s sleep!”

PATIENT: AGM

  • AGE: 24
  • DIAGNOSIS: Severe Vestibulodynia(VVS), Dyspareunia.
  • TREATMENT: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

“I have known Dr. Hamod my whole life. He was the first to explain to me that the pain I felt during sex was vulvodynia. The pain would get so severe it interfered in my relationships. It also took an emotional toll and always left me feeling really embarrassed and uncomfortable whenever I would have to stop. Never did I think there will come a day when I would be able to have a normal, painless sex life! Dr. Hamod has been a blessing in my life; not only was he able to get rid of my pain, but he was also so kind and patient along the way. I could always reach him with questions or concerns, making the treatment process way less intimidating. I cannot thank him enough for everything get has done for me, I couldn't think of a person I would trust more with my health. Thank you for everything Dr. Hamod!”

  • DIAGNOSIS: Severe Vestibulodynia (VVS).
  • TREATMENT: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy 2017.

“Dear Dr. Hamod and staff,

With the utmost gratitude I'm writing to you today over one year after my daughter first met with you and I am so happy to say that she is pain-free thanks to your expertise. My daughter started having severe pelvic pain and burning during her sophomore year in high school at age 15. After going to at least 15 other medical professionals and receiving treatments, high doses of hormones, special diets and even surgeries for conditions she didn't have and the symptoms were not improving, she became hopeless that the pain would ever go away. Of course reading the Internet can make things even worse with reports of people who never got rid of the pain. She was getting all the wrong treatment because no one else besides Dr. Hamod knew the correct diagnosis. My daughter was a high level gymnast, cheerleader and track runner and had to give up all these activities her senior year as the pain was overwhelming her. Her last doctor told her she wasn't trying hard enough and to go see a psychologist to deal with the pain!! As her mother, I never gave up and finally through a friend of mine, I got the information about Dr. Hamod specializing in pelvic pain.

Dr. Hamod knew immediately what her diagnosis was and encouraged us with a treatment that was 90% effective. He got her off all the hormones and after 3 Platelet Rich Plasma therapy injections, she was back to normal. She is now a busy 19 year old in her sophomore year at college studying to be a nurse. She is so motivated to help other girls in her situation that she wants to specialize in gynecology and pelvic floor disorders. If we have not met with Dr. Hamod, I can't imagine that her pain would have been resolved so we are forever grateful for the services he provided my daughter. Although it is his profession and he probably routinely treats many girls/women with these problems, the outcomes are life-changing to those who finally end the hopeless suffering of pain...

Best Wishes, DK and AK”

PATIENT: AR

  • AGE: 29
  • DIAGNOSIS: Dyspareunia, vestibulodynia (VVS), vaginismus.
  • TREATMENT: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

“This man is a MIRACLE WORKER. I have been suffering from Neuro proliferative vestibulodynia for 6 years. I went to the best doctors, many told me I am imagining it. Some told me they dont know what I have, and the ones who did know, just didn't know how to properly treat me. I lost all hope, I went to him broken, genuinely feeling like that was my fate, I had to live with it and accept it.

He told me he will treat me with PRP, and it will only take 3 treatments. I started with EXTREME PAIN ( so extreme that i haven't had intercourse in 6 years) but after only 2 treatments the pain went down from a 10/10 to a 2/10. I just did my 3rd treatment recently and I will be seeing the Dr. again soon. Aside from him being a genius, he is caring and genuine. He truly loves his patients, and is so kind. There’s no other Dr like him, I say this from the bottom of my heart. The best decision that I've made is going half way across the world to meet him.I know what it feels like to be depressed and hopeless. BUT THERE IS HOPE !!! Please talk to him.”

PATIENT: AW

  • AGE: 23
  • DIAGNOSIS: Vestibulodynia (VVS), vaginismus.
  • TREATMENT: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

“For five years, I feel like my body was broken, worrying that this kind of pain would last forever because-as many doctors told me-it was all in my head. But it wasn't something I was simply imagining, and I came to an understanding of what was happening to my body after meeting an incredibly empathetic doctor: Dr. Hamod. It can be scary to seek treatment for any kind of pelvic problem, and I was especially nervous since I suffer from PTSD. However, Dr. Hamod and his staff-through their reassurance-helped me feel less ashamed. More importantly, they instilled a great level of hope in me that would carry on throughout getting the PRP treatment.

Anticipating the PRP was the worst part. In fact, all three procedures went by so smoothly. For instance, I was able to carry on my day as I normally would and stood up in front of a seminar class to give a presentation. Not to mention, Dr. Hamod has a great sense of humor, and talking with the staff during the treatment gave me all the more confidence. When experiencing this type of pelvic pain, everyone wants someone to listen to them, and Dr. Hamod as well as his staff did exactly that. My voice was heard. PRP helped take away the physical pain that came along with vestibulodynia, and-of course-the mental pain that once made me feel broken. My body feels whole again. I feel blessed that Dr. Hamod is in my life.”

PATIENT: JM

  • AGE: 43
  • DIAGNOSIS: Lichen sclerosus and sexual dysfunction.
  • TREATMENT: Platelet Rich Plasma / Fractional CO2 laser therapy.

“Please do not hesitate to see Dr. Hamod because he is a man. I often hear opinions from women, including my own previous opinions, that I feel more comfortable going to a woman doctor and I want to go to someone who knows what it feels like to be a woman. After 43 years of only going to women doctors, then spending time with Dr. Hamod this past year, I can honestly say he knows more about my vagina and other female parts, how it feels due to problems versus how it should feel, how the problem affects me, ways to help me, and he explains this to me. Therefore I would continue to have him as my GYN doctor even though my lichen sclerosus is better... From this experience, I only want the best to help me with my problem and now I know that the best is Dr. Hamod.

GYN appointments without a problem can be embarrassing and with a problem it can be worse. However, Dr. Hamod is very caring, understanding and knowledgeable. Dr. Hamod still has those “traditional bedside manners” which show his caring and compassionate side. He takes the time to share the information with me so I feel less embarrassed because he already knows what I am experiencing. Now, I feel so comfortable to ask him “anything and everything.”

I would continue with Dr. Hamod is my GYN doctor because I'm confident he is an expert in the field... He will be able to identify problems early on and I also can ask him any questions to improve the health of my vagina in my sex life as I age.”

Today, patients are turning to the PelviCure Center™ to alleviate vulvovaginal pain and to cure urinary and sexual dysfunctions.
