Sexual Health  Intimacy, desire, technique–no question is taboo for Dr. Virginia Sadock, one of America’s most respected human sexuality experts, and Dr. Miriam Greene, a leader in hysteroscopy. Through the anonymity of the telephone, you can finally talk about your fantasies, inhibitions, your partner’s desires and your own.


March 1 , 2010—Staten Island, NY– When Linda B. found herself a 50 year-old newlywed to husband Vito, she was looking forward to a new romantic beginning. What she got three years into her marriage shocked her – pain so severe during intercourse she was forced to abstain from intimacy with her husband. When her Staten Island-based OB/GYN Dr. David Herzog suggested a solution that would keep their passion alive, his proprietary L.A.V.A.® procedure, she literally wept with gratitude.

“Sexual intimacy is one of the most important aspects of any relationship,” notes Dr. Herzog. When sex is painful, the lack of intimacy that results can be detrimental to a couple’s relationship. The goal of L.A.V.A.® is to benefit both partners, and bring a profound connection to the relationship.”

Painful sex has been reported to affect about twenty percent of menopausal women. However, as a pioneer in surgical vaginal architecture, Dr. Herzog has recognized that this need goes beyond his aging patients. Some women, regardless of their age, may also experience pain during intercourse, and are also perfect candidates for the L.A.V.A.® procedure. An in-office procedure in his fully-accredited J.C.A.H.O. facility, L.A.V.A.® is performed with local anesthesia, with or without sedation. It is bloodless, painless, and extremely safe! Within just a few weeks of recovery time, the patient will return to enjoyable sex.

After having the procedure with Dr. Herzog, Linda is ready to rekindle the romance she and her husband once had, and enter this new phase in their romantic lives together. Dr. Herzog notes that physical intimacy is important for couples all year round.
