What is Urogynecology?

Our mission is to provide women with options to treat pelvic prolapse, bladder problems and other gynecologic issues emphasizing a minimally invasive approach.

Urogynecologists bring a special type of medical expertise to every appointment. Urogynecologists are Gynecologists or Urologists who have additional specialized training and expertise in treating problems related to the reproductive organs, urinary tract and pelvis, with a thorough understanding of female anatomy. If you are having a problem with urinary function, bulging or protrusion of tissue from the vagina, or rectal function, consider seeing a urogynecologist.
