Welcome to Our Practice

The Center for Urogynecology and Female Pelvic Health provides comprehensive evaluation and management of female pelvic health, including general gynecological exams and treatment and specialized urogynecology evaluation and treatment.

What is Urogynecology?

Urogynecology is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology which focuses on the evaluation and treatment of female urinary incontinence and pelvic floor disorders.

What is a Urogynecologist?

To become a Urogynecologist, a physician must complete a four-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology, followed by three additional years of specialized training in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery. The subspecialist evaluates all the structures and systems of the female pelvis, including organs, nerves, ligaments and muscles.

When Should You See a Urogynecologist?

If you suffer from loss of bladder control or pelvic organ prolapse, you are not alone. This problem occurs in women of all ages. Sadly, many women try to hide the problem and limit their lives because they are not aware that urinary incontinence and prolapse can be treated very effectively.

Conditions treated by a Urogynecologist:

  • Stress Urinary Incontinence (urine loss with cough, sneeze or laugh)
  • Urge Incontinence (urine loss before reaching bathroom)
  • Mixed Incontinence (stress & urge incontinence combined)
  • Interstitial Cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
  • Urinary Retention (problems emptying the bladder)
  • Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections
  • Pelvic Prolapse (fallen bladder, vagina or uterus)
  • Pelvic Pain (menstrual pain, bladder pain)
  • Hematuria (blood in urine)
