Dr. Constantine Raphtis has been a leader in both minimally invasive gynecologic surgery as well as complex women’s health issues for more than 20 years. With an emphasis on robotic and urogynecologic procedures, he’s able to address surgeries such as hysterectomy and urinary incontinence in a single outpatient setting. Dr. Raphtis is focused on conquering vaginal health issues affecting breast cancer survivors as well as menopausal women.
“Vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, painful urination, and recurrent vaginal infections can be difficult to treat in this population, especially when many women cannot or will not use estrogen replacement therapy.” Dr. Raphtis relates a safe, effective, nonsurgical, and nonhormonal therapy involves using a gentle fractional CO2 vaginal laser. “The MonaLisa Touch Laser revitalizes the vagina by stimulating collagen and revascularization within the vaginal wall, helping to restore vaginal pH and lubrication to premenopausal levels.”
“The overwhelming positive and immediate improvement in symptoms has played a significant role in enhancing the health and wellness of our patients.”
