Flint • Genesee County • Burton • Fenton • Flushing • Grand Blanc
The vulva is the external part of a woman’s genitals – often mistakenly referred to as part of the vagina. Pain or discomfort in the vulva is medically called vulvodynia. It can range from mild discomfort and irritation to extreme pain that interferes with a woman’s quality of life.
Symptoms of vulvodynia may include redness, itching, pain, or cracks in the skin. There can be many causes, and obtaining an accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment often requires the skill of a highly experienced physician with very specialized training.
Dr. Fellenbaum at Flint ObGyn is a nationally renowned expert on vulva pain and is the only physician in Michigan specializing in the treatment of Vulvar Diseases and Vulvodynia. He has founded Mid-Michigan Vulvar care, a subsidiary of Flint ObGyn, as the culmination of his life long research and commitment to improving the treatment of vulvodynia.
