Providers in the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology evaluate and treat women at the Women’s Center for Bladder and Pelvic Health, in the Center for Advanced Medicine.
Do you experience accidental loss of urine or stool? Do you sometimes feel or see tissue bulging from your vagina? Have you had past surgery using vaginal mesh? Are you experiencing problems after pregnancy or childbirth? It is possible you may be experiencing one or more symptoms of pelvic floor disorders.
The providers at the Women’s Center for Bladder and Pelvic Health specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor conditions such as:
- urinary incontinence (including urgency, stress, mixed and refractory urgency urinary incontinence)
- pelvic organ prolapse (including uterine, vaginal prolapse and post-hysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse)
- maternal pelvic floor birth injury
- mesh complications
- fecal incontinence
- bladder/pelvic floor pain
Our goal is to help you find the treatment that is best for you. We offer individualized non-surgical and surgical treatment. The field of urogynecology is a subspecialty dedicated to the study and treatment of pelvic floor disorders in women. Urogynecologists have completed medical school and a residency in obstetrics and gynecology or urology, followed by a three-year fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive pelvic surgery.
Urogynecologists work closely with a team of specialists including pelvic-floor physical therapists, colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, as well as physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians to better address complex pelvic floor problems.
