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!”

  • 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”
