Urogynecology

Pelvic pain and incontinence can trigger feelings of fear, embarrassment and physical pain. We'll help you to find freedom from the pain and find a better quality of life.

Pelvic pain occurs mostly in the lower abdomen area, below your belly button and between your hips. Pelvic floor pain can interfere with your ability to sit for prolonged periods of time and may potentially affect your ability to work or perform activities of daily living. Some women can’t even tolerate wearing fitted pants and underwear. Pelvic pain may also limit your ability to participate in sexual relations with your partner and cause undue strain on personal relationships.

Incontinence is the involuntary loss of bladder or bowel control. It is not a part of normal aging. It is usually a result of weakness in the pelvic floor muscles and is experienced by women and men of all ages. 

Conditions We Treat

We treat any type of pelvic pain or pelvic problem, including:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Complications from vaginal mesh procedures
  • Pelvic organ prolapse, which occurs when the pelvic organs drop from their normal position
  • Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • A frequent sense of urgency and increased frequency of urination (intestinal cystitis)
  • Pain caused by an episiotomy
  • Chronic anal pain (levator ani syndrome)

Your treatment may include medications, physical therapy, or surgery

If surgery is needed, our surgeons will provide the most minimally invasive approach.
