Estrella is a In this episode of The Women's Pelvic Health Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Vapnek, a top Urologist located in New York City, who offers comprehensive urologic care with a special focus on urinary control problems amongst women. He is extremely knowledgable on the pelvic floor and has a deep understanding of the correlation between bladder dysfunctions and pelvic floor dysfunctions (which many urologists don't quite understand).

Dr. Vapnek discusses important topics such as why so many women have both bladder conditions and pelvic floor conditions, how pelvic floor physical therapy can help fix bladder problems, how Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is both diagnosed and treated, if you can ever fully recover from IC, what to look for when finding a urologist and why online support groups are NOT an accurate sample of patients. This is a fascinating episode that you do not want to miss.
