In this episode, I sit down with urologist, Dr. Jennifer Locke to discuss:

  • The research she is conducting to investigate the effectiveness of physiotherapy when addressing symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) and dyspareunia
  • An explanation of GSM with common signs and symptoms
  • Clinical trends Dr. Locke sees when working with this client population as a urologist
  • Common themes I see as a pelvic health physiotherapist when working with this client population
  • The evidence based options for those experiencing GSM (over the counter lubricants, hormone based, laser, physiotherapy
  • The importance of conducting research and gathering data to inform evidence based practice.

Dr. Jennifer Locke is a Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada certified Urologist with subspecialty training in reconstructive urology (female urology, male urology, neurogenic bladder, overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, urethral stricture disease).

Dr. Locke grew up in Tsawwassen, British Columbia and attended the University of British Columbia for her undergraduate degree in chemistry. She then completed a PhD in experimental medicine at the University of British Columbia followed by her MD training at the University of Toronto. She completed her residency training in urology at the University of British Columbia followed by her fellowship training in reconstructive urology at the University of Toronto.

Her current clinical practice is based out of Kelowna and consists of a mixture of general urology and reconstructive urology. Operating out of the Kelowna General Hospital she serves the greater Okanagan region and beyond.
