About

The Urogynecology & Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Service offers diagnosis and therapy for a variety of pelvic floor disorders, including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, overactive bladder, anal incontinence, vaginal fistula, sexual disfunction, and pelvic pain. Advanced surgical and non-surgical treatment and the latest technology are used. A state-of-the-art pelvic floor diagnostic laboratory offers urodynamic studies and cystoscopy.

It's more common than you think.

Urinary incontinence and pelvic floor problems are very common in women. Pelvic floor disorders are NOT a normal part of aging that you just have to live with. They are medical conditions that are treatable. Most women experiencing symptoms don’t even seek treatment because they are embarrassed or assume that everything is a result of aging or having babies. What is important to know is that most pelvic floor conditions are treatable!

Why is this happening to me?

Pelvic floor issues arise when there is damage or a weakening of the muscles, ligaments or connective tissue that support the pelvic organs (bladder, bowel, uterus, vagina and rectum), often caused by a variety of health events and conditions like childbirth, obesity and menopause, to name a few.

What is a Urogynecologist?

Urogynecologists complete medical school and a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology or Urology. These doctors are specialists with additional training and experience in the evaluation and treatment of conditions that affect the female pelvic organs, and the muscles and connective tissue that support the organs.

A Typical Office Visit

Prior to your first visit, you will be mailed or given a patient intake packet consisting of forms and questionnaires that will help our physicians determine the appropriate course of action needed to deliver the best care.

Visits are approximately an hour long. Patients meet with one of our physicians and will be chaperoned by a nurse or health technician.

In order to be seen in the Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Clinic, you must be referred by your primary care manager.

Once a referral has been made, you will be contacted by our clinic to schedule an appointment.
