Peritoneal Flap Vaginoplasty
Dr. Jun offers robotic Peritoneal Flap Vaginoplasty in both primary and repair cases (e.g. vaginal stenosis), and care for post-operative urethral complications. Peritoneal Vaginoplasty has the potential to offer a number of benefits:
- Self-lubricating lining with some elasticity
- More vaginal depth
- Requires less dilation, less douching
- Requires less pre-op hair removal
- Less risk of prolapse
- May be less risky than Sigmoid Colon Vaginoplasty, plus no odorous mucus discharge and no need to monitor colon pathology
Robotic-assisted Peritoneal Vaginoplasty reduces operative time by facilitating a dual-surgeon abdominal-perineal approach, lowering the risks associated with positioning-related complications, such as neuropathy.
