Long Distance Patients:


For patients outside of the New York Area we offer two options to suit your individual needs.


   1. Patients wishing to travel to New York:

  •  Our consultant in conjunction with Dr. Herzog will work with you to do as much of the pre-procedure assessment via phone and email as possible.
  •  Patients wishing to have the procedure done are able to do so over a weekend in New York.
  •  Specialized transportation and hotel accommodations are available.
  •  Please call our consultant at 718-477-LAVA (5282) or email consultant@gentlerenewal.com for more information.


   2. Work with a L.A.V.A.®  Associate near you!

  • Dr. Herzog has trained a select few specially qualified surgeons in different geographic areas in order to provide women without the ability to travel access to this important and life altering procedure.
  • Physicians certified by the L.A.V.A. Training Institute are all trained by Dr. Herzog personally and are fully qualified to perform his exclusive procedure.


The following is a list of Herzog L.A.V.A.®  Associates:


Dr. Joseph Berenholz:

For the past 20 years, Dr. Joseph Berenholz has been a board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist in the Detroit area. During that time, he has delivered thousands of healthy infants. However, his real passion has been gynecologic surgery, specifically Urogynecologic and pelvic reconstructive surgery. He has performed nearly three to four thousand surgeries over the lifetime of his career. What makes Dr. Berenholz so unique, however, is that he has always been one of the few practitioners in the area willing to introduce the latest innovations in gynecologic surgeries to his patients and colleagues, including the Herzog L.A.V.A.® Procedure
