Gynecology

Dr. Shifrin recognizes that women are intensely concerned with health issues that impact the quality of their lives. Dr. Shifrin’s Women’s Wellness medical services are designed to help his patients manage their health care for all times of life, from adolescence through the senior years. Gynecological services include:

Cosmetic Gynecology

Pregnancy and childbirth are among life’s most rewarding and meaningful experiences. However, some women experience undesirable side effects. Childbirth can lead to vaginal relaxation and to changes in sexual function and sensation. Fortunately, today women can dramatically improve the appearance of their sexual organs, enhance their sexual pleasure, and increase their self-esteem through advanced surgical techniques.

Dr. Shifrin offers pioneering surgical procedures designed to meet his patients’ individual physical and sexual needs. These custom-designed gynecological cosmetic surgeries effectively restructure vaginal size, increase vaginal muscle tone and strength, and correct stress incontinence.  Dr. Shifrin surgically reforms the vaginal area to make intercourse more pleasurable for a woman and her partner.

Cosmetic gynecological services include:

Labial Reduction

This surgical procedure is designed to sculpture the elongated or unequal vaginal lips to one’s specification.  It is usually done on the small inner lips, but can be done on the outer lips, if appropriate.  This procedure is typically requested by women who are born with large or unequal labia or develop this condition with childbirth or age.

Vaginal Tightening

This is a surgical solution for vaginal relaxation, which occurs when the vaginal supports loose their tone, strength and control due to childbirth or age.  Vaginal tightening surgically restores the stretched or damaged supporting tissues and the muscles of the perineum.  The stretched and excess vaginal skin is removed resulting in immediate reduction in vaginal size, which should allow more friction and return of sensation during sexual intercourse.

Hymen Restoration

This surgical procedure is designed to repair and reconstruct the thin, ring-like skin membrane partially covering the opening of the vagina, known as the “hymen.” This procedure is performed at the request of women who need the surgery for ethnic, cultural, or religious reasons.

G-Spot Amplification

The G-Shot® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily augment the Grafenburg spot (G-Spot) resulting in enhanced sexual arousal and sexual gratification in sexually active women with normal sexual function.  The G-Spot is augmented with a human engineered, FDA approved collagen. This is a lunch time procedure, which takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish.

Teenage/Adolescence Care

Dr. Shifrin considers it a special privilege when he is asked to see your daughters, or any young woman, as they begin the transition through adolescence into womanhood. He takes seriously the skill and trust that is required to help these patients understand how the life-long habits of good preventive care and thoughtful reproductive health choices will enhance their quality of life long into their later years.

Dr. Shifrin follows current adolescent health care guidelines established by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which recommends having the first visit to a gynecologist between the ages of 13 and 15.  Dr Shifrin will, of course, provide the screening and care specific to the patient’s individual needs.

What about HPV vaccination?

In the summer of 2006, the FDA approved the use of Gardasil®, a vaccine for 4 types of HPV (human papillomavirus). This virus is responsible for virtually all cases of cervical dysplasia, cervical cancer, and genital warts. The vaccine is highly effective against the 4 types of HPV that account for 70% of cervical cancers and 90% of genital warts.

While vaccination can be given between the ages of 9 and 26, it is best to administer it between the ages of 11 and 13, as it is most effective before sexual activity.

Please feel free to ask Dr. Shifrin about initial or subsequent services available for your daughter. Keep in mind that doctor-patient confidentiality as to the content of the visit must be observed in keeping with federal and state privacy laws.

Cosmetic Beauty Treatments

BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment

With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of women. BOTOX® Cosmetic has an established record of experience– it’s precise and predictable.

It’s a simple, nonsurgical, 10-minute procedure with no downtime. Often called a “lunchtime procedure”, treatment requires no recovery.

Organic Cosmetic Products

To help his pregnant patients stay not only healthy but also beautiful throughout and after pregnancy, Dr. Shifrin offers in his office a variety of cosmetic products that are completely free from all harsh detergents, chemical fragrances, and other unhealthy additives. From stretch-mark creams to back-rub oils, the pregnancy line sold in Dr. Shifrin’s office provides distinctive items to pamper and support both the physical and the emotional well-being of expectant mothers. Each product is beneficial and utilizes only pure and natural ingredients.

Please feel free to discuss not only your health but also your beauty concerns with Dr. Shifrin.

Natural Remedies

Homeopathy

Homeopathy, developed in Germany and practiced in the United States since the early 19th century, is based on the premise is that the body has an energy called a vital force or self-healing response. When this energy is disrupted or imbalanced, health problems develop. Homeopathy aims to stimulate the body’s own healing responses through homeopathic remedies derived from natural substances.

Dr. Shifrin uses homeopathic remedies from Germany, which continues to be a leader in homeopathic practice and production of homeopathic treatments.

Ask Dr. Shifrin which homeopathic remedies will work best for you.

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal yoga offered in Dr. Shifrin’s office, uses postures, breathing, and meditation from ancient yoga traditions to help ease pregnancy, delivery, and the after-effects of childbirth. This program assists in creating flexibility, focus, strength, and awareness through a gentle practice designed especially for the pregnant woman’s needs. The Prenatal Yoga program provides a safe and supportive environment for expectant mothers and is a wonderful way to connect with other mothers-to-be.

Consult with Dr. Shifrin about whether prenatal yoga is right for you. Small group sessions are conducted in Dr. Shifrin’s office by an experienced yoga instructor.

Acupuncture

Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used alternative medical procedures in the world. It is proven to provide an effective complement to standard care in treating and strengthening the physical condition, normalizing physiological functions, and relieving pain. The aim of acupuncture is not just to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but rather to treat the condition’s underlying cause and increase the patient’s ability to function, leading to an improved quality of life.

Consult with Dr. Shifrin to find out whether acupuncture is right for you and to receive a referral to an experienced acupuncture practitioner.

    Dr. Shifrin is an excellent doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, supportive and experienced. My family and I have been under his care for many years. He delivered my first child over 5 years ago, and I did not hesitate for a second when it was time to select an OBGYN for the second pregnancy. I am extremely fortunate to have him as my doctor during these scary and trying world wide pandemic times. He has provided me with utmost care and support throughout the current pregnancy. He always answers all of my questions and acknowledges my concerns however unfounded they might me.
    The office staff is an extension of the doctor. They take patient care very seriously, and are always very friendly and supportive. The office is well organized. Even during the pandemic, appointment times are always adhered to and phone calls are returned. I cannot imagine being a patient anywhere else.

    I have been a GYN patient of Dr. Shifrin since 2003 (with an exception of a couple years when I went to another doctor for insurance reasons and deeply regretted about it later). Dr. Shifrin is an amazing, caring, knowlegeable doctor with the great bedside behavior. He did 2 surgeries on me which fixed my problems. He has a great sense of humor, very warm and personable. His stuff is very professional, courteous, and helpful. Almost everyone is bilingual Russian/English. Office is well managed, wait time is minimal to non existent. Appointments are well coordinated. I highly recommend him for Gynecology.
