Cherokee Women’s Health Specialists, PC, has unique surgical expertise in the Southeast United States as an OB/GYN practice with three Board Certified Urogynecologists.
Areas of Expertise as FPMRS subspecialists:
- Urogynecology – Incontinence

- Heavy Bleeding

- Transvaginal Mesh Revision and Repair
- Vaginal Rejuvenation (vaginal laxity from childbirth)
- Labiaplasty (structural abnormalities and cosmetic repairs)
Dr. Michael Litrel says, “Women often suffer unnecessarily, not knowing that there are effective treatments for a leaky bladder or pelvic pain. Women who need treatment will often make these statements:
- “I leak when I sneeze, laugh, or move too much.”
- “I feel like my bottom’s falling out!”
- “I have pain with my cycles and it’s interfering with my life.”
- “My bleeding every month is horrendous.”
