Monterey Pelvic Medicine and Pain Management

 ny copy 2     After many years of teaching and practicing medicine, specializing in obstetrics and gynecology in both academic and private practice settings, Dr. Yaqub (and many others), have became acutely aware that there is a serious gap in proper identification and treatment of pelvic disorders and thus the resulting pain.

Dr. Yaqub’s practice is focused on diagnosing an individual’s specific pelvic pathology and adopting a new paradigm of treatment using appropriate non-surgical methods to improve quality of life for pelvic pain sufferers, a condition which affects about 15% of the population.

Motivated to provide up to date and comprehensive medical management for this difficult ailment (Pelvic Pain),  Dr. Yaqub is focusing this medical practice to patients (Men and Women) suffering from this condition.

Experiences show surgery is not always the best answer

Research and public health records are replete with evidence of over utilization of invasive surgical intervention in pelvic diseases (particularly hysterectomies).  A change in paradigm is underway concerning understanding and treating pelvic pathology: The role of fibromuscular and neuromodulation pathways in generating pelvic pain in addition to newer specific medications have emerged as credible and superior alternatives to invasive intervention.
