He is an experienced clinician who has consistently strived to be at the forefront of his specialty. During 24 years in specialist practice he was an early adopter of Minimally Invasive Surgical techniques and technologies.He performed one of the first minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomies in B.C. in 1995, the first mesh sling procedures for urinary incontinence in 1998 and pelvic organ prolapse in 2005. He has a high volume gynaecology practice including Minimally Invasive and Urogynecologic procedures.
The introduction of the Mona Lisa Touch into his practice is yet another example of staying at the forefront of Women’s Health Care. Dr Kaye believes that this treatment will be of significant benefit to women suffering from the genitourinary syndrome of menopause which includes vaginal dryness, pain with sex, urinary symptoms of frequency, urgency and mild incontinence. It is also beneficial for treating Lichen Sclerosis a vulvar skin condition.
A full gynecological evaluation is essential before undergoing treatment with the Mona Lisa Touch. Dr Kaye’s experience and care will help you decide if this treatment is the right treatment for you.
