Department of Urogynecology
Urogynecology focuses on the care of women with pelvic floor dysfunction, which includes but is not limited to, urinary incontinence, urogenital prolapse, pelvic or bladder pain, overactive bladder and sexual dysfunction. The pelvic floor is comprised of muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that help support and control the rectum, uterus, vagina and bladder. Childbirth is the most common cause of damage to the pelvic floor, however, repeated heavy lifting, surgery and chronic cough/disease may also contribute. Our goal is to help women live comfortably and enhance their quality of life. To this end, we are committed to offering each patient an accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan. Surgical and non-surgical treatment options are offered to each patient and decisions are made on an individual basis. If surgery is selected, most women can be treated with minimally invasive techniques that offer long-lasting results with a quick recovery.
