Urogynecology & Pelvic Health

More than 1 in 4 women reports some form of discomfort or decreased quality of life due to a pelvic floor disorder, including pelvic organ prolapse, urinary tract symptoms/incontinence, and fecal incontinence. And studies show the figures may be much higher as these disorders are often underreported and undertreated.

The pelvic floor is the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that help support and control the rectum, uterus, vagina and bladder. The pelvic floor can be damaged by childbirth, repeated heavy lifting, chronic disease or surgery. Our team is committed to improving your lifestyle with an individualized treatment plan.

While fairly common, these conditions are not a necessary part of aging. We offer comprehensive, customized services for pelvic floor disorders including:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Bowel incontinence
  • Overactive bladder
  • Recurring UTIs
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Vaginal dryness, burning, or pain
  • Sexual dysfunction or discomfort

Accepting patients by primary care referral. To make an appointment, please have your primary care provider call 906.449.3350.
