Urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery

Urogynecology focuses on the area of reconstructive surgery of pelvic floor disorders. 

The pelvic floor includes the muscles, ligaments and nerves that support the bladder, uterus, vagina and rectum.

These muscles can become weak or damaged — often due to childbirth, age, repeated heavy lifting, chronic disease or previous surgery — causing pain, discomfort and other symptoms. Pelvic reconstructive surgery is performed to restore the pelvic floor and supported organs.

When Should a Woman See a Urologist?
When Should a Woman See a Urologist?

Many people feel embarrassed when it comes to discussing their "below the belt" health with a physician. Women often believe that a primary care physician and an OB/GYN are the only healthcare providers they will ever need. These providers can address most concerns, but there are instances where seeing a urologist is more beneficial. Despite urology being commonly associated with men's healthcare, there are situations where women may also require the expertise of a urologist.
