The Division of Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Ob/Gyn) treats women who are experiencing incontinence, voiding and bowel dysfunction, pelvic organ (uterine) prolapse and pelvic floor (lower abdomen) pain. The doctors in this division hold a special interest in treating these conditions through non-surgical methods, including pelvic floor physical therapy.
When needed, a full range of sophisticated testing and advanced surgical procedures are provided. Specialized in-office testing may include cystoscopy, urethroscopy, multichannel urodynamic testing and pelvic floor EMG (electromyogram).
Complete patient care, from evaluation through surgical treatment, is a feature of this division. A multidisciplinary team including a fellowship-trained urogynecologist, physical therapists specializing in pelvic floor pain and rehabilitation, and physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians provide patient care. This multidisciplinary approach greatly increases the chance of successful therapy.
