Some things come together to form a perfect union. The newly announced partnership of Drs. Maria Milian Sobarzo and Allyson Patronella is one of these instances. The two experienced, board-certified OB-GYNs have worked with one another for years. Recently, Drs. Patronella and Sobarzo became partners in Advanced Women’s Wellness. Together, with associate Dr. Bruce Christopherson, a board-certified OB-GYN, and nurse practitioner Amy Huston, they offer women of all ages quality gynecologic and preventive care that focuses on the whole person. In addition, the practice provides leading-edge aesthetic services, including advanced laser treatments, so patients can look as good as they feel.

“I’m thrilled Dr. Patronella has joined with me as a partner at Advanced Women’s Wellness,” Dr. Sobarzo says. “We embrace the same philosophy of care that includes helping patients reach their overall wellbeing and take pride in staying up-to-date on the latest techniques, technology, and treatments. It’s a joy to come to work each day and make a difference in our patients’ lives.”

Dr. Patronella adds, “Dr. Sobarzo and I, and the rest of the team, take a personalized approach to women’s healthcare. We take the time to listen, help, and support our patients, and enjoy developing long-lasting relationships with them.”

Gynecology, Wellness, Aesthetics, Surgery

Advanced Women’s Wellness is a progressive practice that offers a complete array of services designed with today’s woman in mind. As a trusted ally in your pursuit of health and wellbeing, all treatments and therapies are customized to the patient, including gynecologic surgery. For example, Drs. Sobarzo, Patronella, and Christopherson perform traditional as well as minimally invasive, laparoscopic, and robotic-assisted hysterectomies. This level of versatility means they can tailor the surgery to best meet each patient’s unique needs.

Life-Changing New Laser Treatment for Common Menopause and Perimenopause Symptoms

If you’re one of the millions of women who suffer from vaginal dryness, itching, painful urination, burning, or painful intercourse, Advanced Women’s Wellness is here to help! They are one of the first few practices in Greater Houston to offer a remarkable new laser treatment designed to revitalize vaginal tissue and restore it to its pre-menopausal state.

The FDA-approved MonaLisa Touch laser gently acts on tissue in the treatment area, stimulating collagen production to eliminate pain and discomfort as well as helping restore sexual health and intimacy. Patients typically undergo just three five-minute in-office treatments six weeks apart. No anesthesia is required. After this, yearly maintenance is recommended.

“MonaLisa Touch is virtually painless and there’s typically no downtime after treatment,” Dr. Sobarzo says. “Most patients notice improvement after their first treatment.”

“The overall improvement after treatment completion is amazing,” Dr. Patronella says. “Clinical studies, as well as what our patients report, indicate up to a 90 percent improvement in symptoms after three MonaLisa Touch treatments in menopausal patients.”
