Urogynecology

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.​​

Treatment Options

Our fellowship-trained specialists take ample time to assess their patients in order to understand the complex causes of the condition. These assessments include a detailed patient history, a physical examination and any necessary diagnostic testing.

The physician will then recommend a personalized treatment plan that may include either non-surgical or surgical options.

Non-surgical Treatment Options

Many times non-surgical treatments can be recommended, including such options as:

  • Medications

  • Pelvic exercises

  • Biofeedback

  • Electric stimulation

  • Behavioral and dietary modifications

Surgical Treatment Options

When symptoms continue to interfere with daily activities, vaginal, abdominal or laparoscopic surgery may be necessary. Ninety-five percent of surgeries performed are laparoscopic, vaginal or a combination of the two. Corrective surgeries for pelvic and bladder conditions often are outpatient procedures with small incisions and minimal post-operative pain and recovery time.

Latest Diagnostic Equipment

The latest equipment makes our diagnostic capabilities among the most advanced in the nation.  This state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment combines imaging technology and pressure tests of the lower urinary tract with nerve studies, which enables us to assess the function of all the pelvic organs. Traditional equipment only allows recording isolated pressures from the organs in the pelvis.

We provide the following functional and anatomic study diagnostic services in our on-site pelvic floor laboratory:

  • Videourodynamics
  • Cystoscopy
  • Pudendal nerve latency
  • Cine-defecography
  • Positive pressure urethrogram
  • Electromyography
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Endoanal 3D ultrasonography
  • 3D endovaginal ultrasonography
  • Anal manometry
  • Fistulography
