Women's Pelvic and Bladder Health services at OU Physicians and OU Medical Center are recognized as a Center of Excellence: Continence Care in Women (COE) by the National Association for Continence (NAFC).

Our doctors and physical therapists spend significant time assessing patients to help them understand the complex causes of their conditions. These assessments include a detailed patient history, a physical examination and advanced diagnostic testing. In most cases, women are evaluated in a single visit and sent home with a treatment plan.

Our physicians have been published extensively in national and international journals. They are considered leaders in the field of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery/Urogynecology. Our providers also serve as medical faculty at the OU College of Medicine and train the region's future physicians.

The clinic provides advanced diagnostics including 3-D imaging, rehabilitation and corrective surgery. Our physicians are experts in minimally invasive surgery(laparoscopic and robotic), leading to fast recovery and minimal pain. 

The complete scope of conditions treated includes:

  • Pelvic organ prolapse (uterine prolapse, cystocele, rectocele, enterocele)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal stenosis or non-functional vagina
  • Mesh erosion, eroded slings, surgical complications
  • Incomplete bladder emptying
  • Urinary frequency, urgency, nocturia
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Fecal incontinence

The clinic offers non-surgical treatments, including medications, pelvic exercises, biofeedback, electric stimulation, behavioral and dietary modifications and mechanical devices. When symptoms continue to interfere with daily activities, vaginal, abdominal or laparoscopic surgery may be necessary. Corrective surgeries for pelvic and bladder conditions can be outpatient procedures with small incisions and minimal post-operative pain and recovery time.
