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

  • Mechanical devices

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.
