Women no longer have to live with the pain, embarrassment, and discomfort caused by pelvic floor disorders. Many urogynecology conditions are easily treatable. Urogynecology is an advanced approach to women’s health care where a Urogynecologist can diagnose and treat all types of pelvic floor conditions.

About Urogynecology:

Urogynecology is a sub-specialty of Gynecology that focuses on disorders of the female pelvic floor. There are three main types of pelvic floor conditions that one out of every three women
face in her lifetime:

  • Urinary incontinence: Symptoms include lack of bladder control
  • Fecal incontinence: Characterized by the lack of bowel control
  • Pelvic organ prolapse: A condition in which the uterus, bladder, and/or bowel slip down from their normal position and cause a bulge through the vaginal canal

Although urogynecological problems seldom put one’s life at risk, they do have the potential of deteriorating the quality of life of individuals diagnosed with pelvic floor diseases. For this reason, most of their treatments are aimed at improving the quality of life and managing symptoms by using traditional approaches before advising on invasive treatment options.

Minimally Invasive Approach to Surgery:

For conditions that require surgery, our physicians specialize in innovative surgical procedures, such as:

Advanced laparoscopic procedures: These procedures involve tiny incisions for a narrow tube with a lighted camera called a laparoscope to be inserted into the pelvic region for accessing the surgical site.

Robot-assisted surgery: Using the da Vinci surgical system, the surgeons get magnified 3D images of the surgical sites to perform delicate surgeries with more precision.

Compared with traditional open surgery, the minimally invasive procedures cause little or no post-operative discomfort, minimal scarring; offer better recovery time; require shorter hospital stays, and decrease chances of infections. Additionally, patients can return to their normal life quickly after the procedure.
