What we do
We have considerable training, knowledge, and experience in evaluating and treating female pelvic floor diseases, and we provide specialized and comprehensive care to our patients.
Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, often known as Urogynecology, is a specialization of Urology and Gynecology. Urogynecology is the medical specialty that deals with women who have difficulties with their pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is the foundation of the so-called ‘core’ group of muscles. These muscles run from the pubic bone (in the front) to the coccyx or tail-bone (in the back) and from side to side in the pelvis, like a hammock.
Although a primary care physician or a regular ob/gyn may be familiar with these issues, a urogynecologist can provide extra insight. Patients with pelvic organ prolapse, bothersome bladder or bowel incontinence, or when their primary doctor suggests consultation can see or be referred to a urogynecologist.
Problems with emptying the bladder or rectum, pain/problems in the pelvic floor muscle, and the necessity for particular competence in vaginal surgery are some of the other issues for which the doctor may visit a urogynecologist.
