Urogynecology

Our fellowship trained gynecologic surgical subspecialists provide evidence-based management of female pelvic floor disorders including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, fecal incontinence, voiding dysfunction and acquired and congenital malformations.

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine that may occur with exercise or vigorous activity, or can occur spontaneously preceded by sudden urgency.

Pelvic organ prolapse is the loss of vaginal or uterine support causing the sensation of vaginal pressure or resulting in a vaginal "bulge." This can occur in the anterior compartment of the vagina (called a cystocele), the top of the vagina (called apical or uterine prolapse), or the posterior vagina (called a rectocele).

Fecal incontinence is the involuntary loss of stool that causes soiling, and voiding dysfunction is the incomplete emptying of the bladder or inability to empty the bladder (urinary retention), etc.
 
What should I expect at a new patient visit?

Your provider will ask you to complete a questionnaire concerning your medical history and your symptoms. You will undergo a pelvic exam which is similar to a well-woman exam when you have a pap test.

In some patients, bladder function testing is required to better assess the patient’s urinary symptoms, which is typically done as a follow up appointment and involves the use of a urinary catheter.
