Dr. Gerig's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Gerig "Dr. Gerig is passionate about caring for men and women with lumbopelvic and abdominopelvic pain disorders. Often, patients have difficulty getting an appropriate diagnosis, and may see many other practitioners first. This is because pelvic pain is an emerging new field in medicine, so its fundamentals are not yet taught in medical schools and residencies. Therefore, in addition to offering hope to those who suffer with pain, Dr. Gerig's mission is to promote education of the entire medical community about these disorders."
This content was provided by Dr. Gerig "I consider my role to be that of educator, guidance counselor, and procedural specialist. It is not necessary to be too rigid about the treatment options a particular patient may choose (other than self-care and participating in the plan, which is an absolute must). My expectation is that I can explain the nature of the problem, and based on that as well as my education, experience, and ongoing training, recommend the treatment options that I think will likely facilitate the most prompt recovery. I believe that patients may decline to pursue some options, and that we must work together to find the plan that will address each piece of that person's puzzle. Persistance is required of both patient and physician, and each must do his or her best."
