Mr Rajiv Varma, Consultant Gynaecologist at Spire Hartswood Hospital

The guest Bodytalk on 24 November was Mr Rajiv Varma, consultant gynaecologist at Spire Hartswood Hospital, he took time out of his busy schedule to talk to Jules Bottazzi. He spoke about pelvic floor problems and the day to day difficulties that even quite young women face when suffering different forms of incontinence. He explained how these problems occur and what women can do to help themselves in the first instance, and what medical and surgical treatment is now available to reduce or totally eliminate their symptoms, including day case surgery to cure the very common problem of stress incontinence (that's nothing to do with mental stress by the way).

Tune in to Bodytalk Tuesday evenings from 7 only on Phoenix 98 FM in association with Spire Hartswood Hospital and if you ever miss any of our special guests you can listen again by going to www.spirehealthcare.com/hartswood/Podcast 

Mr Varma answered questions such as;

What drew him to the field of gynaecology
What the different types of urinary incontinence are and the impact they have on women’s lives
How long it's reasonable to try self-help solutions before you seek advice from a specialist

Mr Varma has also invented a new piece of equipment to help gynaecologists that will be launched early 2010 which he spoke about.
