Laser Vaginal rejuvenation (LVR): Vaginal relaxation is a very common problem that many women experience but do not often discuss with their health care provider. At The Laser Institute of New England, we feel that a healthy sex life is a major part of a loving relationship.

This is a procedure pioneered by Dr. David Matlock, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. Dr. Grover has been personally trained by Dr. Matlock to ensure that his patients receive the most up to date and expert techniques to make their relationship with their partners the best it can be.

We offer several procedures that can repair, enhance and beautify the genetalia, including reduction of the labia minora, rebuilding of the perineum, augmenting the labia majora and even reconstruction of the hymen. These procedures can be performed alone or incombination with LVR. Contact us for more information or visit www.lvria.org
Colposcopy: We offer colposcopy for abnormal pap smears. HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) has been identified as the cause of 99% of cervical cancers. We manage your abnormal pap smears by examining your cervix for higher grade lesions with a type of scope called a colposcope. A vinegar solution is applied to your cervix to bring out the abnormal looking cells under colposcopy. After this has been done, biopsies may be taken to further determine if you need treatment to your cervix. We take pride in making this procedure is as comfortable as possible.
Pelvic Floor Therapy: Urinary and fecal incontinence is an issue that affect your quality of life. It is a common problem that can be difficult to discuss with your healthcare provider. Weak pelvic floor muscles can be the cause of incontinence. Over active bladder nerves can also lead to urinary urgency and frequency and urge incontinence. We offer state a pelvic floor therapy program to strengthen pelvic muscles and divert these overactive nerve sensations to help you regain control of your life. The Maine Center for Continence and Pelvic Floor Disorders can help with treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence and vaginismus (painful vaginal muscle spasms) that occurs with interstitial cystitis. Contact us for more information.
