Experience, advanced skills, and a comforting bedside manner are all part of the patient-centric experience at Advanced OB-GYN Associates. Dr. Richard Salter started the private practice group with two other physicians in 2008 and is now the sole remaining original partner. Dr. Anu Gupta joined his practice in 2016 and became a partner in 2020. Dr. Shefali Pappu joined the team in 2020 after medical school and residency. All are board-certified physicians striving to offer patients the highest quality of care using innovative treatment options for women of every age and every stage of their lives.
The team’s highest priority is to make patients feel welcome, appreciated, and cared for by delivering an overall pleasant experience. Recent medical advances in women’s healthcare have revolutionized how the team approaches treatments. “We are at the forefront of women’s healthcare, combining advanced technology with a personal touch,” explains Dr. Salter. “We foster strong partnerships with our patients, allowing them to have a voice in the decision-making process regarding their treatment.”
Introducing an Advanced Treatment for Urinary Incontinence
“Urine leakage is a common occurrence for many women while coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising,” Dr. Gupta explains. “It’s especially common in pregnancy, after childbirth, and in menopause.” Advanced OB-GYN Associates has added Emsella to its treatment options. This progressive medical device chair is designed to help women who experience urinary incontinence, pelvic floor prolapse, and decreased intimate function.
Proven Benefits of Emsella
Emsella is an FDA-approved non-surgical, non-invasive approach with no recovery time and little to no discomfort. It uses electromagnetic energy to deliver 12,000 pelvic-floor muscle contractions in a single 30-minute session, ultimately re-training the muscles of incontinent patients. The contractions are similar to Kegel exercises but delivered thousands of times more than what you could achieve yourself in that time period. The treatment does not require any clothing to be removed. Simply sit down on the Emsella chair and let the simulated Kegel action tighten the perineum and the bladder’s neck muscles. An added benefit is the option for vaginal rejuvenation that helps to improve intimacy during intercourse.
“Studies have shown improvement with six 30-minute Emsella treatment packages. However, we have seen improvement with just a few treatments,” Dr. Salter states. “Once the muscles are conditioned, the goal is to stay active and do your own Kegels to maintain achieved results,” Dr. Gupta adds. “As a mother of two children, I am currently undergoing Emsella treatment. I would totally recommend Emsella for my friends and family.”
“We are dedicated to making a positive impact in our patients’ healthcare for life,” Dr. Salter says. At Advanced OB-GYN Associates, Drs. Salter, Gupta, and Pappu’s goals are to provide the best care, starting from the moment patients call to make their first appointment to every stage throughout their lives.
