Female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery is a board certified subspecialty in urology and obstetrics/gynecology.
It focusses on the care of women with urinary and fecal urgency and incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and voiding dysfunction. There are many options for women. These options may include physical therapy, medication, and minimally invasive surgical techniques.
Our educational approach helps patients understand what may be affecting their pelvic floor, what they can do on their own to help improve their condition, medical and surgical options that may be available and if pelvic floor rehabilitation can also help. While some common factors affect pelvic health, including age, childbirth and previous abdominal surgeries, these are not simply a part of aging and are not normal in women at any age.
Our specialists work with patients and their doctors to treat and improve the following conditions:
- Urinary Incontinence (Stress Incontinence and Overactive Bladder)
- Fecal Urgency and Incontinence
- Pelvic Organ Prolapse
- Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
- Recto-Vaginal and Vesico-Vaginal fistula repair
- Chronic Constipation
- Pelvic Pain (Interstitial Cystitis / Painful Bladder Syndrome / Vulvodynia)
- Painful Intercourse
