Female Pelvic and Reconstructive Surgery

The Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery is a unique, multidisciplinary program that combines the expertise of urogynecologists who treat all pelvic floor disorders in women from incontinence to difficulties with bladder or bowel control and pelvic organ prolapse, with urologists who treat the entire urinary tract, and specialty physical and occupational therapists who specialize in pelvic floor rehabilitation. The physicians and therapists work collaboratively with each other and with their patients to tailor treatment plans that meet each woman’s preferences and lifestyles. The division serves as a national model for treatment and educational endeavors in female pelvic floor disorders. Patients can benefit from the latest treatments and opportunities to participate in clinical research trials for urinary incontinence, urinary difficulties, bowel control problems and pelvic organ prolapse.
