Women’s Health

Pelvic Organ Prolapse – As women age, their pelvic floor muscles often weaken. You may begin to notice vaginal pressure or a vaginal bulge. This can be hereditary, secondary to childbirth, or a result of chronic cough or constipation, amongst other causes. We offer a variety of treatment options including surgical repair in the form of robotic sacrocolpopexy. A sacrocolpopexy involves your surgeon securing your bladder or vagina to your sacrum (tailbone) with a small piece of mesh. This is done robotically and requires only a few small incisions in your abdomen

Urinary Incontinence – The involuntary leakage of urine can be a sensitive topic to discuss, and can have a significant impact on a woman’s quality of life. Our physicians understand that this can be an uncomfortable topic, and take great care in treating this common condition. Your physician will first determine what kind of incontinence you have and will then discuss available treatment options with you. Some urinary incontinence can be treated with medication alone, while some may need a minimally invasive surgical treatment. Your physician will take time getting to know your symptoms and goals of care to determine the appropriate treatment plan for you.

Overactive Bladder – Many women suffer with an overactive bladder as they age. This is a common condition, and we have a number of medications and minimally invasive therapies to help you spend less time in the restroom and more time doing the things you enjoy.

Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections – While you may think a bladder or kidney infection is treated with a simple course of antibiotics, there can be much more to it. Urinary tract infections can be related to constipation, lack of estrogen, and sexual activity amongst other things. We work with women to identify the cause of their urinary tract infections and implement strategies to prevent them in the future.

Interstitial Cystitis (Painful Bladder Syndrome) – Interstitial cystitis can be a painful and frustrating condition for women. Let our physicians help you manage this chronic condition with the most up to date treatment options.
