For Doctors

The Herzog L.A.V.A.®  Training Course:


After years of performing the L.A.V.A.® procedure exclusively, Dr. Herzog decided to teach a select group of specially qualified physicians to perform his procedure in order to address the numerous requests he has received from women across the country and internationally who may be candidates for the procedure but are not able to travel to New York.


We are currently accepting applications from gynecologists or cosmetic surgeons with experience in vaginal surgery for the Herzog L.A.V.A.® training course.  Selected physicians will be trained by Dr. Herzog and certified to perform this exclusive procedure.


The Herzog L.A.V.A.® training course will include a didactic L.A.V.A.® procedure presentation, clinical presentations with L.A.V.A.® procedure videos, a L.A.V.A.® procedure business model, as well as assisting in a live L.A.V.A.® procedure.  There will also be an inanimate Nd Yag laser lab for those who have not yet been trained.


Women have been expressing symptoms of uncomfortable intercourse for many years. I have developed this procedure to help these women return to normal sexual activity.

The inaugural course in April was a huge success, and was very well received by the participating doctors as can be seen by the attached reviews:

“I want to thank you for the excellent training you provided me. Your attentiveness was greatly appreciated and gave me a sense of confidence for future procedures. The course was fabulous and the kindness of your staff and their support made this a truly memorable experience. I’m proud to be a member of your inaugural class.”

“learned more than just a new procedure, and will do my part to spread the word and get things started.”

“When I arrived home, I couldn’t stop telling Jody how excited I was about the new LAVA procedure and how well put together the course was.  But I also couldn’t stop talking about how much I enjoyed meeting all of you. I’m looking forward to promoting and doing LAVA LA and hopefully seeing each one of you guys soon. Once again, thank you, David, for such a great course and such incredible hospitality.”

It has been estimated that more than 9 million women in the U.S.A. have pain with intercourse, and each and every day I encounter a women in my practice who is a candidate for the procedure.

The procedure solves the problem in those women who either cannot or will not use topical hormones, or in those in whom the hormones have not worked for them.  I look forward to teaching my colleagues how to perform the procedure and begin restoring women’s intimate relationships across the globe.
