Dr. Bahlani graduated magna cum laude with an undergraduate degree and then went on to receive her Doctor of Medicine degree from the Virginia Commonwealth School of Medicine in Richmond, VA. She completed her residency in OB/GYN at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. After her residency, Dr. Bahlani joined the Smith Institute following a fellowship in urology under the mentorship Dr. Robert Moldwin, a leader and innovator in the field of pelvic pain.
Dr. Bahlani’s specialized training allows her to treat patients with urologic and gynecologic pelvic pain syndromes, such as vulvodynia, pelvic floor dysfunction, interstitial cystitis, vulvar dermatoses and female sexual dysfunction. As a clinician, as well as through her continual pursuit of knowledge and research, Dr. Bahlani always strives to achieve her ultimate goal of enabling women to spend less time in pain and gain the tools they need to live their lives to the fullest.
Kathryn and Sonia talk about what pelvic pain is, a few of the many causes, and what we can do about this sometimes mysterious condition. They discuss the idea of muscle knots, and what that actually means. As well as the role of the nervous system, stress, trauma, and urinary issues. Sonia shares information about the pelvic floor from a more medical perspective while we have never gotten into on the show.
